Although Dougray Scott seems rather serious and conservative (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he has a very idealistic soul, as described below. He may feel that he is always getting in his own way, holding himself in check even when he really wants to take off and soar. His cautious, pragmatic attitude can help balance his tendency to be overly optimistic and to occasionally go overboard. His enterprising nature, combined with his circumspect and prudent outlook on life, could help Dougray Scott be very successful in business.
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 Dougray Scott, 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. Dougray Scott 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. Scott 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. Dougray Scott has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Scott always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Dougray Scott has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Dougray 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.
Scott 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, Dougray's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Dougray Scott 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 Scott.
Scott is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Dougray Scott is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
He is very receptive and sensitive but has a tendency to over-idealize, making his approach to love relationships, romance or marriage somewhat unrealistic. Dougray Scott also tends to be a bit absent-minded and naive, leaving himself open for being taken, swindled or lied to.
