Though Edward Abbey seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is also quite idealistic, as described below. He may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Edward Abbey has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
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, Edward Abbey 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, Abbey can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Edward 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. Edward Abbey 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. Edward Abbey seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Edward makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Edward Abbey 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. Edward Abbey stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Edward Abbey was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Edward 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.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Abbey. Edward Abbey has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Edward Abbey may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Edward Abbey 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. Edward Abbey has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Edward Abbey has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Abbey also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
Edward Abbey is a restless spirit, a bit self-willed, and he has a tendency to overstrain his nervous system. He is easily aroused and quick to explode when things do not meet his expectations. He is highly individualistic, resourceful and determined.
