John Maynard Keynes
Though John Maynard Keynes cares very much about his dignity and the way he is perceived by others (as described on the previous page), he has a very mischievous, playful side that pokes fun of anyone who takes himself too seriously (including himself!). Also, though his great loyalty was highlighted in the previous chapter, fortunately he is also flexible and playful, so he does not allow his commitments to become too burdensome.
John Maynard Keynes is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and his attention span is often quite brief. Keynes grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. John Maynard Keynes craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for John Maynard Keynes to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel John toward many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something he does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Keynes.
John Maynard Keynes lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if John had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. John Maynard Keynes has a creative mind and he often lives by his wits.
He is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. He enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting his ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas he has talent for.
John Maynard Keynes also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement, it is hard for John Maynard Keynes to achieve it, for he is frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit his personal freedom and mobility.
His happiness lies in using his creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. John has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. His faults are his lack of constancy and persistence, and his tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Keynes. John Maynard Keynes has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. John Maynard Keynes may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
The above description of John Maynard Keynes is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. John Maynard Keynes tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
John Maynard Keynes tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. John Maynard Keynes has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. John Maynard Keynes is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Keynes has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
He is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel his energies productively. John Maynard Keynes may feel that everything is going to be all right, that he cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
