Though Jordan Bratman seems rather cautious and conservative (as discussed in the previous chapter), he has a much more playful, humorous side as well. Moreover, the combination of his attention to detail and cautious, circumspect approach to life, coupled with his youthful curiosity and quick mind makes Jordan mentally sharp, articulate and clever.
Jordan Bratman 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. Bratman grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Jordan Bratman craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Jordan Bratman 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 Jordan 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 Bratman.
Jordan Bratman 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 Jordan had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Jordan Bratman 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.
Jordan Bratman 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 Jordan Bratman 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. Jordan 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 Bratman. Jordan Bratman 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. Jordan Bratman may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Jordan Bratman also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Jordan expects the best, and usually gets it.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Bratman's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Jordan Bratman tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Jordan Bratman has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Bratman also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Jordan Bratman also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Jordan Bratman is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to his own detriment. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Jordan Bratman, and he cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what he does. Otherwise Jordan Bratman becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Jordan.
Jordan Bratman deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Jordan has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Jordan likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
