Dr. Max Euwe
The way Dr. Max Euwe appears or comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature; what he sees is what you get. The description below corroborates what you read about Max in the previous chapter. If at all possible, Euwe should avoid living in large cities, as he needs natural surroundings.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Euwe's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Dr. Max Euwe has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Dr. Max Euwe will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Euwe can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Dr. Max Euwe also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Dr. Max Euwe has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Euwe for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Dr. Max Euwe usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Dr. Max Euwe also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Max has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Euwe's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Dr. Max Euwe lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Dr. Max Euwe has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Euwe can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Dr. Max Euwe feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Dr. Max Euwe tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Dr. Max Euwe has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Dr. Max Euwe 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 Max does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Euwe, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Although Dr. Max Euwe prefers harmony and accord, he also has a confrontational side.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Dr. Max Euwe often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
