John C. Mather
Although John C. Mather comes across as a very private, somewhat wary and enigmatic individual (as described on the previous page), there is another, quite different side to him: a person who really wants to be noticed, known, loved and admired.
Proud and intensely individual, John C. Mather really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". John C. Mather must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. John C. Mather needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
John has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. John C. Mather also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For John C. Mather, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. John wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Mather appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
John C. Mather also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. John C. Mather loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, John C. Mather likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, John needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Mather's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Mather. John C. Mather 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. John C. Mather may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
John C. Mather 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.
Inwardly he is zealous and fanatical, though he may hide his personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of his feelings. He is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. John is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. John C. Mather tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and he often seeks to emulate them. John has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
