The way Gary Cooper appears or comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature; what he sees is what you get. The description below corroborates what you read about Gary in the previous chapter. If at all possible, Cooper should avoid living in large cities, as he needs natural surroundings.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Cooper's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Gary Cooper has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Gary Cooper will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Cooper can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Gary Cooper also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Gary Cooper has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Cooper for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Gary Cooper usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Gary Cooper also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Gary has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Cooper's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Gary Cooper lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Gary Cooper tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting himself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Cooper.
Gary Cooper 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 Gary does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Cooper, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Gary has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win Cooper many allies and successes in life.
While Gary Cooper deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, he is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in his affections. Cooper can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Cooper's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Gary Cooper tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Realistic and practical, Gary Cooper sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Cooper possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Gary Cooper also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Cooper often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Gary Cooper that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Cooper can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
At times Gary Cooper may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of him. When his life is becoming too predictable, Gary may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Gary Cooper which needs to be expressed now and then.
Gary Cooper has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance he has to overcome. Whatever he does, he knows what he wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
