Behind Lucas' rather pragmatic, hardheaded exterior (mentioned in the previous chapter), he is an adventurer and a risk-taker at heart. His cool, conservative manner masks a much more fiery core.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Jerry Lucas believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Lucas' gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Jerry Lucas craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Jerry likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Jerry Lucas loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Jerry Lucas also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Lucas, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Jerry Lucas believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Jerry Lucas hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Lucas' relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Jerry Lucas to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Jerry Lucas would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Jerry Lucas to do so.
Ownership gives Jerry Lucas a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Jerry also has a natural instinct for or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Jerry Lucas often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Jerry has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Jerry sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Jerry really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Lucas is very thorough and takes his time thinking things through. He enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Jerry Lucas also could find traveling very rewarding.
