Although he is accepting, tolerant and sympathetic (as described on the previous page), Georges Bataille also possesses keen judgment and discrimination. His sensitive intuition and free-flowing imagination are balanced by his sharp, analytical mind discussed below.
At heart Georges Bataille is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Georges Bataille has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Bataille can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Georges Bataille often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Bataille can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Georges Bataille likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Bataille. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Bataille can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Bataille tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Georges has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity.

His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Georges Bataille overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly.
