When reading the previous chapter and this one, Donald Regan will notice that there are some significant differences between how he comes across to others and how he is at heart. His warm, supportive, nurturing side, described in the previous chapter, can conflict with his freedom-loving side, which is described below. In short, he may feel torn between taking care of others and "flying free". Donald Regan must maintain a balance so that he has enough time and freedom to explore, travel and play. Striving for this balance is an endless challenge for Regan. As kind and sympathetic as he is, there are limits to the amount of time and energy he can dedicate to taking care of other people. Those who really know Donald understand that he is an adventurer at heart, and personal commitments (especially when others depend on him) easily become burdensome.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Donald Regan, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Donald Regan probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Regan can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Donald Regan has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Regan always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Donald Regan has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Donald has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Regan expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Donald's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Donald Regan enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Regan.
His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Donald Regan's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Regan can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Donald Regan is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Donald does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Regan, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
While Donald Regan deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, he is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in his affections. Regan can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
Realistic and practical, Donald Regan sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Regan possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Donald Regan also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Regan often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
Regan always seems to find the right words to verbalize his feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Donald Regan also has a keen sense of beauty and he probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
