Behind Simpson's rather lighthearted, witty and restless demeanor described in the previous chapter, lies a sensitive, poetic soul. Jim Simpson may cover up his sensitivity with light banter and cleverness - or he may use his verbal and communication skills to express his imagination, kindness and refined sensitivity.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Jim Simpson as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Simpson may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Jim Simpson usually keeps to himself.
Jim shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Jim has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Jim Simpson sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Simpson tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Jim has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Simpson will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Simpson tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Jim Simpson does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Jim Simpson has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Simpson more than it bothers him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Simpson. Jim Simpson has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Jim Simpson may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Jim Simpson feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Jim Simpson has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Jim Simpson tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Jim Simpson also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Jim's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Emotionally, it could be difficult for Jim Simpson to discern illusion from reality. He is impressionable and sympathetic toward others. However, Simpson tends to idealize others and could adopt a fantasy view of a wonderful marriage, causing disappointment later on.
He is well aware of his limitations and has a strong desire to go his own way in life. There is a note of gravity to Jim's personality and he appears somewhat somber. It is not easy for Jim Simpson to relax and enjoy and he prefers to work in seclusion.
