In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Jon Voight is also objective, pragmatic and quite ambitious. He is likely to work his way to the top of the ladder in some corporation, academic community or the like through his astute strategies combined with his willingness to take risks. Jon Voight aims to be the authority, the one in charge. At times his impulsiveness may be at odds with his conservative, responsible side (which is discussed below). Voight could experience ongoing internal tension between pleasing himself and acting spontaneously versus doing what he needs to do to get ahead and realize his long-range ambitions.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Voight. Jon Voight 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.
Jon Voight has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Jon Voight seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
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. Jon has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Jon Voight has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Jon Voight plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Voight.
Voight's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Voight. Jon Voight 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. Jon Voight may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Jon Voight 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. Jon has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Jon sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Jon really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Voight 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, Jon Voight enjoys fine health as well.
While Jon Voight does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Jon Voight has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Jon Voight tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
Jon Voight has a sense of good fellowship and comradeship and is very much at ease in contact with others. Voight works successfully with others in his community, groups or associations and may get some assistance from some very powerful and influential people.
