Behind Jarmusch's proud and rather self-centered demeanor (described in the previous chapter), he is a thoughtful person concerned with social issues. He is very sensitive to the ways in which economic, social and cultural issues affect individuals. In his own life, Jim Jarmusch struggles to find ways to advance himself while also contributing something valuable to his community. Jarmusch must not be content with simply blaming society for his own problems or those of others, but rather become active in finding creative ways to solve these problems.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Jim Jarmusch cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Jarmusch can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Jim has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Jim Jarmusch probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Jim Jarmusch seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Jim makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Jim Jarmusch thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Jim Jarmusch stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Jim Jarmusch was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Jim has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
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. Jim Jarmusch is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and he is quite a perfectionist!
Jarmusch can easily become overly identified or involved with the task he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Emotionally, it could be difficult for Jim Jarmusch to discern illusion from reality. He is impressionable and sympathetic toward others. However, Jarmusch tends to idealize others and could adopt a fantasy view of a wonderful marriage, causing disappointment later on.
Jim Jarmusch 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.
He is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel his energies productively. Jim Jarmusch may feel that everything is going to be all right, that he cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
Jim Jarmusch has a great desire for freedom and independence and is subject to strong emotional tensions. He is very creative and forges ahead tirelessly. But Jarmusch tends to make the highest demands on his physical energy and is prone to over-stimulate his nerves.
