Behind Shoaf's quiet, unassuming and cautious front (described in the previous chapter) lies a much more unconventional, liberal-thinking, freedom-loving soul, described below.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Harry Shoaf cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Shoaf can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Harry has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Harry Shoaf probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Harry Shoaf seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Harry makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Harry Shoaf thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Harry Shoaf stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Harry Shoaf was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Harry has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Harry Shoaf has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Harry enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Harry Shoaf has a strong sense of pride.
Harry Shoaf is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to his own detriment. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Harry Shoaf, and he cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what he does. Otherwise Harry Shoaf becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Harry.
He is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Harry Shoaf does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Shoaf's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Harry Shoaf and shape important decisions in his life, and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
He keeps his feelings well under control, but is inclined to feel inferior and insecure. Shoaf displays a cool and reserved manner and tries to hide his inner discontentment. Harry Shoaf also has a tendency to cling to the past.
His vitality is very strong and he is likely to be a workaholic. If Harry Shoaf is not careful, he may work so hard that he becomes exhausted, leaving himself open to physical breakdown. Harry Shoaf also has a strong drive to win and to dominate others.
