Although Jack Nicholson is quite proud and he likes to show off and impress other people with his accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - he is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as will be discussed below). Because of this, he is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance, and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Nicholson's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Jack Nicholson has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one for spinning wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being, and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Jack Nicholson will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Nicholson can be enormously lazy at times and have a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Jack Nicholson also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting rather than an urban life style.
At heart his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Jack Nicholson has a strong desire for security, stability, and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave lots of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadiness, and gentle strength, others often depend upon Nicholson for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Jack Nicholson usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Jack Nicholson also has an innate sense of harmonizing with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time, and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or some creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Jack has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Nicholson's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Jack Nicholson lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to the new.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Nicholson. Jack Nicholson has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Jack Nicholson may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
He is strong-willed, forceful and independent. Nicholson knows what he wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. Jack Nicholson tends to judge himself and others quite severely, but he is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
He is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Jack Nicholson could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Jack 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 may find it hard to establish relationships with other people and he tends to look for more timid partners. Jack Nicholson could also have difficulty expressing his ideas to others as well as coming to an understanding with them.
