Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. His enthusiasm and outgoing, forward-looking nature is a gift, but Joe DiMaggio should also be wary of the tendency to overlook details and be oblivious to others' personal feelings.
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 Joe DiMaggio, 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. Joe DiMaggio 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. DiMaggio 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. Joe DiMaggio has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. DiMaggio always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Joe DiMaggio has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Joe 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.
DiMaggio 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, Joe's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Joe DiMaggio 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 DiMaggio.
Joe DiMaggio 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 DiMaggio.
Joe DiMaggio 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 Joe does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to DiMaggio, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
While Joe DiMaggio deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, he is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in his affections. DiMaggio can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
Joe has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Joe and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Joe DiMaggio needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities say.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Joe DiMaggio 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 Joe's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
He is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Joe DiMaggio does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in DiMaggio's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Joe DiMaggio and shape important decisions in his life, and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Joe has an optimistic and harmonious personality and he happily goes about the attainment of his goals. DiMaggio knows how to make the best of life's opportunities and he gets along with everyone. Joe DiMaggio has the good fortune to live in pleasant and agreeable circumstances.
