Because Gilbert Roland seems to be such a gentle, tolerant, accepting person (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he can startle people with some of his very pointed, bluntly honest statements. Even though he is sensitive and empathetic, he can also be quite tactless at times. His good will and good intentions, however, usually prevail. With Roland's free-flowing imagination (described earlier) and his great restlessness (discussed below), he is apt to be a wanderer, and perhaps somewhat of an escapist.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Gilbert Roland, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Gilbert Roland probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Roland can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Gilbert Roland has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Roland always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Gilbert Roland has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Gilbert has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Roland expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Gilbert's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Gilbert Roland enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Roland.
Roland is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Gilbert Roland is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Gilbert Roland 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. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Gilbert Roland attends to his emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of his intuition, dreams and gut feelings, he will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
Roland can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Gilbert Roland enjoys fine health as well.
He is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on his agenda. Gilbert Roland confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Roland to claim his own.
His emotions are very intense and Gilbert Roland is excited quite easily. Love is very important to him and he is constantly seeking emotional fulfillment, but he will not waste time with casual relationships.
He is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Gilbert Roland could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Gilbert likes to flirt and tends to fall in love at first sight, but he then transfers his affections to someone else for no apparent reason.
He is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel his energies productively. Gilbert Roland may feel that everything is going to be all right, that he cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
