Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. John Byrne should not allow himself to become so responsible and mature that he has no time left for play.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Byrne. John Byrne will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
John Byrne has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. John Byrne seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. John has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. John Byrne has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, John Byrne plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Byrne.
Byrne's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
John Byrne 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, Byrne can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. John Byrne 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.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Byrne, and he does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how he is going to live his life. John Byrne craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. John Byrne possesses inventive and creative genius.
John Byrne has a basic need to fit in with others and is always willing to cooperate. He enjoys working with others as a team and is a well liked comrade.
John Byrne has a sense of good fellowship and comradeship and is very much at ease in contact with others. Byrne works successfully with others in his community, groups or associations and may get some assistance from some very powerful and influential people.
