Behind Powers' rather jovial, open, enthusiastic demeanor (as described on the previous page), there is a very different side to him - deeper, more serious, and more emotionally intense, as described below. His optimism and idealism are tempered and balanced by a certain skepticism and a sense of the darker side of life and of people.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Ed Powers is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Ed Powers usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Ed Powers also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Ed Powers commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Ed merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Powers has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Ed will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Ed does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Powers can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Powers can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Ed Powers emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Ed Powers loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Ed never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Ed Powers tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Powers. Ed Powers has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Ed Powers may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Ed Powers is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Powers has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
Sensitive and imaginative, he is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Ed Powers is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Ed has an abundance of dreams, visions and longings, but does not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them materialize. Gentle, idealistic and peace loving, Ed often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Ed has an ethereal quality about him.
Ed Powers undergoes deep, transformative changes in his life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because he does not avoid the depths, Powers has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Ed is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people he comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Ed Powers is a force to be reckoned with.
Powers is very thorough and takes his time thinking things through. He enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Ed Powers also could find traveling very rewarding.
