When reading Valenti's description in the preceding chapter, one would never guess that behind his direct and self-assured manner lies a great deal of caution and self-doubt. Part of Jack Valenti wants to take risks and forge ahead; the other part is far more cautious and sees all the ways his ventures could fail. Moreover, as mentioned below, precision and meticulous attention to detail are actually strong points of Jack's, though one might be deceived at first by his impetuous manner.
At heart Jack Valenti is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Jack Valenti has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Valenti can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Jack Valenti often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Valenti can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Jack Valenti likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Valenti. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Valenti can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Valenti tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Jack has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Valenti can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Jack Valenti seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Jack Valenti analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Valenti allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
His energies are directed toward either honing his professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Jack Valenti is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and he is quite a perfectionist!
Valenti can easily become overly identified or involved with the task he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Jack Valenti undergoes deep, transformative changes in his life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because he does not avoid the depths, Valenti has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Jack is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people he comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Jack Valenti is a force to be reckoned with.
He is polite and gallant and makes a special effort to meet others half-way. Jack Valenti has the ability to give and receive love. Nurturing friendships, personal love relationships and social life is important to him.
