In many ways, Johnny Miller contradicts himself! While he enjoys traveling and adventure (as mentioned in the previous chapter), Miller can be very slow to move. Stability and security are as important to him as exploring new worlds. Johnny Miller needs to find a place in his life to express both urges: the impulse to take risks and to go where he has never gone before, and the need for order, predictability, and staying with the tried-and-true.
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 Miller's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Johnny Miller 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 Johnny Miller 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, Miller can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Johnny Miller 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. Johnny Miller 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 Miller for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Johnny Miller usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Johnny Miller also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Johnny 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 Miller's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Johnny Miller lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Johnny Miller prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Miller invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
Johnny Miller feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
Johnny Miller tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Miller may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve his desires in underhanded ways.
Johnny's hypersensitivity to his environment is likely to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Johnny Miller more than most people.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Johnny often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. Miller is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Johnny Miller tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Johnny Miller both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
Johnny Miller 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.
