Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. Graham Chapman should not allow himself to become so responsible and mature that he has no time left for play.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Chapman. Graham Chapman will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Graham Chapman has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Graham Chapman seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Graham has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Graham Chapman has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Graham Chapman plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Chapman.
Chapman's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Graham Chapman has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Chapman can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Graham Chapman feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Graham Chapman tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Graham Chapman has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Graham Chapman 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.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Chapman, and he does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how he is going to live his life. Graham Chapman craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. Graham Chapman possesses inventive and creative genius.
He is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel his energies productively. Graham Chapman 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.
Chapman seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Graham Chapman tends to withdraw and his outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Graham Chapman should beware of letting his emotional tension react to his physical well-being.
