Behind Bergen's rather cautious attitude and conservative appearance (mentioned in the previous chapter) lies a much more unconventional soul. He may seesaw between the traditional and the unorthodox, the pragmatic and the idealistic, or conformism and nonconformism. Edgar Bergen needs to find a balance or reconcile between these extremes. He may view himself as being more progressive than he is because Edgar Bergen surrounds himself with middle-of-the-road people. Moreover, his combination of objectivity and interest in world affairs and larger issues is likely to enable Edgar Bergen to become very successful at his business or whatever career he chooses.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Edgar Bergen cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Bergen can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Edgar has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Edgar Bergen probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Edgar Bergen seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Edgar makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Edgar Bergen thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Edgar Bergen stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Edgar Bergen was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Edgar has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Edgar Bergen 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, Bergen can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Edgar Bergen 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.
Edgar Bergen 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 blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Edgar Bergen also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Edgar expects the best, and usually gets it.
He is an original! Edgar Bergen 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. Edgar does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Edgar's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Emotionally, it could be difficult for Edgar Bergen to discern illusion from reality. He is impressionable and sympathetic toward others. However, Bergen tends to idealize others and could adopt a fantasy view of a wonderful marriage, causing disappointment later on.
