The way John Bardeen appears or comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature so "what he sees is what you get". The description below reinforces what you read about John in the previous chapter.
John Bardeen is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and his attention span is often quite brief. Bardeen grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. John Bardeen craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for John Bardeen to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel John toward many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something he does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Bardeen.
John Bardeen lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if John had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. John Bardeen has a creative mind and he often lives by his wits.
He is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. He enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting his ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas he has talent for.
John Bardeen also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement, it is hard for John Bardeen to achieve it, for he is frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit his personal freedom and mobility.
His happiness lies in using his creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. John has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. His faults are his lack of constancy and persistence, and his tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
John Bardeen 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 Bardeen.
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to him at just the right time. Because John Bardeen is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate successes in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. John should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Bardeen's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. John Bardeen tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
John Bardeen has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Bardeen also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
His mind is very active and his judgment usually is sound. Although John Bardeen'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.
He may lack direction and drive and tends to compare himself unfavorably to others. Bardeen alternates between caution and unrealistic expectations and lets others expect too much of him. But John Bardeen plods forward steadily, reaching success later in life.
