Franklin D. Roosevelt
Behind Roosevelt's quiet, unassuming and cautious front (described in the previous chapter) lies a much more unconventional, liberal-thinking, freedom-loving soul, described below.
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, Franklin D. Roosevelt 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, Roosevelt can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Franklin 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. Franklin D. Roosevelt 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. Franklin D. Roosevelt seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Franklin makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Franklin D. Roosevelt 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. Franklin D. Roosevelt stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Franklin D. Roosevelt was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Franklin 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.
Franklin D. Roosevelt has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Franklin enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Franklin D. Roosevelt has a strong sense of pride.
Franklin D. Roosevelt 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 Franklin does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Roosevelt, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Franklin is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Franklin D. Roosevelt is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Roosevelt may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
Franklin D. Roosevelt 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.
He is a bit impulsive and excitable and wants things done quickly. Franklin D. Roosevelt tends to be very impatient with anyone who is slower or less energetic than he is. Roosevelt will fight for what he wants but should guard against mishaps or accidents.
