Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. Jimmy Hoffa needs to be especially wary of the tendency to be oblivious to the personal feelings of others because otherwise he sometimes hurt others' feelings without realizing it.
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 that means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships Jimmy Hoffa 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, Hoffa can be enormously stubborn, opinionated, and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Jimmy has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to live by his ideals, but his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences, and needs. Jimmy Hoffa 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. Jimmy Hoffa seems rather self-sufficient and detached emotionally because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Jimmy makes up his mind on an issue, he is difficult to sway and can be rather dogmatic.
Jimmy Hoffa 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 community affairs, social organizations, and groups of all kinds, or to have a keen interest in such. 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. Jimmy Hoffa stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and in terms of ideas. When young, Jimmy Hoffa was very influenced by his peers and by group pressures and by all the "latest crazes". Jimmy has an experimental mind and is attracted by the novel.
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.
Jimmy Hoffa tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting himself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Hoffa.
Jimmy Hoffa tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but he does not always listen as well. Jimmy Hoffa has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Jimmy Hoffa 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 pulled in two different directions. Jimmy has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Also, Jimmy sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or know what Jimmy really wants, thus creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions, and self-doubt often plague him. Jimmy Hoffa has a cautious, careful, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Jimmy Hoffa tends to work and struggle more than he needs to, and to take himself too seriously.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Jimmy Hoffa also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Jimmy Hoffa tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he could have been dominated in his relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Hoffa may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain his desires in underhanded ways.
Jimmy's hypersensitivity to his environment is apt to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Jimmy Hoffa more than most people.
Jimmy Hoffa has a deep belief in his own power and his ability to survive any change and to emerge victoriously from any difficulty. Jimmy has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive, even fanatical at times. Jimmy likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak, who avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
He is warm-hearted, kind, generous and very popular, especially with the opposite sex. Hoffa's happy feelings rub off onto others and everyone enjoys being with him. Due to a protective and encouraging upbringing, his relationships with his parents are good.
