Dr. Phil McGraw
Although he is accepting, tolerant, and sympathetic (as described on the previous page), Dr. Phil McGraw also possesses keen judgment and discrimination. His sensitive intuition and free-flowing imagination are balanced by his sharp, analytical mind discussed below.
At heart Dr. Phil McGraw is modest and humble, and he rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Dr. Phil McGraw has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and he prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, McGraw can be relied upon to be careful, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in doing a job well. What he may lack in self-confidence Dr. Phil McGraw often makes up for in skill - developing expertise, technical knowledge, and competency in some specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for McGraw can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Dr. Phil McGraw likes to organize, categorize, and arrange everything into a logical system, and he is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes McGraw. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, McGraw can be mercilessly self-critical as well. Whether in his environment or within himself, McGraw tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-estimation, and he often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Dr. Phil has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and will be bothered by elements in his surroundings (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple, understated, but refined. Coarseness, bluntness, and vulgarity really offend him. McGraw can be difficult to live with sometimes because of his fastidiousness, his sensitivity, and his idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Dr. Phil McGraw seems rather cool and self-contained, he has a very helpful nature and he enjoys serving others. He is content to be in a supportive, assisting role rather than in the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is careful and cautious in his approach to life, realistic, practical, and disinclined to gamble. Dr. Phil McGraw analyzes before he acts. He is too serious sometimes. Allowing himself to play and to make mistakes would be of great health for McGraw!
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 Dr. Phil McGraw's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
McGraw can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Dr. Phil McGraw feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual, and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
He is an original! Dr. Phil McGraw radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things he is interested in, and conveys this to others, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Dr. Phil does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
His deep comprehension and good powers of concentration give Dr. Phil McGraw the ability to judge matters wisely and prudently. He is a keen observer and also can be a persuasive speaker. Dr. Phil likes to be in control, but needs appreciation and recognition for his efforts.
