Joseph does not speak up readily, even when he has a lot to say!

His intuition and first impressions are likely to be quite accurate, however, and Joseph Alioto tends to depend upon this faculty in making decisions.

People trust and confide in Joseph, and he is able to read between the lines and sense what their feelings are as well as what they are saying.

Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Joseph Alioto is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity.

Joseph Alioto has a deep, serious turn of mind, and when out of balance, he tends toward pessimism, cynicism, and overly rigid or judgmental thinking. These are tendencies Alioto may have to work to counteract, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten up his mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color Joseph's thinking too much.
