John C. Lilly
Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. John C. Lilly should not allow himself to become so responsible and mature that he has no time left for play.

His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Lilly. John C. Lilly 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.

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.
