Inside, he is quite different from what his freewheeling, confident, playful demeanor (mentioned in the previous chapter) would suggest. Although Cooper likes to theorize and speculate and dream big dreams, he is basically clearheaded and practical. However, Jackie Cooper also worries and frets a great deal, although others may not know this from his jovial demeanor.
At heart Jackie Cooper is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Jackie Cooper has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Cooper 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 Jackie Cooper 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 Cooper 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. Jackie Cooper 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 Cooper. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Cooper can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Cooper 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. Jackie 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. Cooper can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Jackie Cooper 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. Jackie Cooper analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Cooper allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Cooper.
Jackie Cooper has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
