Because Jeff Chandler seems to be such a gentle, tolerant, accepting person (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he can startle people with some of his very pointed, bluntly honest statements. Even though he is sensitive and empathetic, he can also be quite tactless at times. His good will and good intentions, however, usually prevail. With Chandler's free-flowing imagination (described earlier) and his great restlessness (discussed below), he is apt to be a wanderer, and perhaps somewhat of an escapist.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Jeff Chandler, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Jeff Chandler probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Chandler can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Jeff Chandler has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Chandler always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Jeff Chandler has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Jeff has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Chandler expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Jeff's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Jeff Chandler enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Chandler.
Chandler is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Jeff Chandler is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Jeff Chandler tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Jeff Chandler has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Jeff Chandler is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Jeff does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Chandler, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Jeff Chandler between his conscious attitudes and aspirations and his deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Jeff may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with his subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in his body may well be a signal that Jeff Chandler is denying or suppressing the messages from his subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Jeff Chandler will learn to accept and express these two different sides of himself. Should he fail to do so, Chandler is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect his denied or repressed qualities and seem to make his life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
He is an original! Jeff Chandler radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things he is interested in, and conveys this to others, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Jeff does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
Jeff Chandler has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and he likes to share his intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
