Though George Bush seems rather cautious and conservative (as discussed in the previous chapter), he has a much more playful, humorous side as well. Moreover, the combination of his attention to detail and cautious, circumspect approach to life, coupled with his youthful curiosity and quick mind makes George mentally sharp, articulate and clever.
George Bush is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and his attention span is often quite brief. Bush grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. George Bush craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for George Bush to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel George toward many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something he does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Bush.
George Bush lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if George had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. George Bush has a creative mind and he often lives by his wits.
He is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. He enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting his ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas he has talent for.
George Bush also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement, it is hard for George Bush to achieve it, for he is frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit his personal freedom and mobility.
His happiness lies in using his creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. George has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. His faults are his lack of constancy and persistence, and his tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Bush. George Bush 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. George Bush may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
George Bush 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 a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make George Bush a winner.
While George Bush does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
Realistic and practical, George Bush 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 Bush possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. George Bush also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Bush 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 George Bush that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Bush can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. George Bush is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Bush 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.
Along with his energy and drive, George Bush has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Bush, as well as a doer and a fighter. George wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for him.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, George Bush also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. George Bush takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to George, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. George Bush may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
He is strong-willed, forceful and independent. Bush knows what he wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. George Bush tends to judge himself and others quite severely, but he is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
His deep comprehension and good powers of concentration give George Bush the ability to judge matters wisely and prudently. He is a keen observer and also can be a persuasive speaker. George likes to be in control, but needs appreciation and recognition for his efforts.
