John Carradine is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. John Carradine has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Carradine can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. John Carradine enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, John never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. John Carradine has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Carradine may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, John Carradine responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. John does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Carradine will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Carradine's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. John Carradine becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. John Carradine tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
John Carradine appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Carradine may seem much more conservative than he actually is. John fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, John Carradine is likely to grow in confidence, because he will learn to depend more on his own evaluation of himself.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about John's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. John Carradine also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Carradine needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally John Carradine does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be John's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
He is a born leader and wants to be in power and control of his environment. Far-sighted and prudent, John Carradine has the ability to organize projects, and personal advancement and public success is likely to be his.
