Behind Belushi's rather cautious attitude and conservative appearance (mentioned in the previous chapter) lies a much more unconventional soul. He may seesaw between the traditional and the unorthodox, the pragmatic and the idealistic, or conformism and nonconformism. John Belushi needs to find a balance or reconcile between these extremes. He may view himself as being more progressive than he is because John Belushi surrounds himself with middle-of-the-road people. Moreover, his combination of objectivity and interest in world affairs and larger issues is likely to enable John Belushi to become very successful at his business or whatever career he chooses.
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 it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, John Belushi 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, Belushi can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. John has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. John Belushi 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. John Belushi seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once John makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
John Belushi 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, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. 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. John Belushi stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, John Belushi was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". John has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
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.
John Belushi has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Belushi can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. John Belushi feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
John 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 John 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. John Belushi needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities say.
