Although John Higgins seems accommodating, obliging, amiable and willing to compromise (as described on the previous page), he can also be enormously stubborn and immovable, as discussed below. John has such a pleasant demeanor that he is able to use a combination of charm and bullying to get what he wants. He is an excellent negotiator.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Higgins' course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
John Higgins has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though John Higgins will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Higgins can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. John Higgins also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. John Higgins has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Higgins for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, John Higgins usually maintains his poise and equanimity.

He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
John has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Higgins' tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, John Higgins lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
John Higgins craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable or taboo. John may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know him very intimately. John Higgins is rarely content with himself and his life, and he has an inner urge to continually delve deeper than ever before. John is also highly interested in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
John Higgins often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. John has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, John sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what John really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Higgins can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, John Higgins enjoys fine health as well.
At times John Higgins may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When his life becomes too predictable, John may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in John Higgins that needs to be expressed now and then.
He is warm-hearted, kind, generous and very popular, especially with the opposite sex. Higgins' happy feelings rub off onto others and everyone enjoys being with him. Due to a protective and encouraging upbringing, his relationships with his parents are good.
