Although Joe Perry often seems light, flippant, and careless or carefree (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a more conscientious, cautious and responsible side, as described below. Perry is perceptive and clever and needs to guard against being sharp-tongued at times.
At heart Joe Perry is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Joe Perry has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Perry can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Joe Perry often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Perry can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Joe Perry likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Perry. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Perry can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Perry tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Joe has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Perry can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Joe Perry seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Joe Perry analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Perry allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Joe Perry prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Perry invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
Perry can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Joe Perry enjoys fine health as well.
While Joe Perry does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
Joe Perry has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Joe likes to be in control of himself.
His mind is very active and his judgment usually is sound. Although Joe Perry's thinking is influenced by his feelings, he is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. He is in control of his feelings and is able to express them rationally.
Joe Perry has a sensitive physique, is impressionable and prone to external influences. Joe should guard against the tendency to escape through drugs, alcohol etc. His imagination is very vivid and Perry is likely to dream of big things.
