Although it may seem that he is just patiently plodding along, Humphrey Bogart is actually quite shrewd and has a clear purpose in mind. He is far more astute and ambitious than his rather gentle, forbearing manner (described in the previous chapter) would indicate.
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 Bogart. Humphrey Bogart 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.
Humphrey Bogart has a thoughtful, quiet, and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Humphrey Bogart seems to be always 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. Humphrey 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. Often he is authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Humphrey Bogart has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or work to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Careful and conservative, Humphrey Bogart plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, to play, to be spontaneous and silly, and to be weak and vulnerable sometimes, is not easy for Bogart.
Bogart'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.
Humphrey Bogart craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable, or taboo. He may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know Humphrey very intimately. Humphrey Bogart is rarely content with himself and his life, and he has an inner urge to be continually going farther or deeper than him ever have before. Humphrey has also a strong interest in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous, and vital. Humphrey Bogart has a very strong physical drive which expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Humphrey Bogart has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
While Humphrey Bogart does have a lot of drive, he frequently holds himself back. Learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!) is one of his tasks.
Humphrey Bogart has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He advances in life rather slowly, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, to be spontaneous and playful. Humphrey likes to be in control of himself.
Bogart always seems to find the right words to verbalize his feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Humphrey Bogart also has a keen sense of beauty and he probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
Humphrey Bogart has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
He is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Humphrey Bogart could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Humphrey 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.
Bogart alternates between aggression and apathy and sometimes feels that he is unable to meet all the demands made on him. Once Humphrey Bogart becomes aware of what he needs to do, however, he is capable of working long and hard, not giving up until his work is done.
Humphrey Bogart seems to have an emotional and physical unrest and he always have to be on the move. Humphrey could find it difficult to control himself and he tends to get angry and upset easily. Eccentric and individualistic, he can create a stir wherever he goes.
