Although Joseph Liouville enjoys conversing and interacting with people (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a self-reliant, independent spirit. Liouville can go it alone if need be because Joseph Liouville likes to be a free agent. He likes to exchange ideas, but as stated below, he does not always listen.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Joseph Liouville believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Liouville's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Joseph Liouville craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Joseph likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Joseph Liouville loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Joseph Liouville also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Liouville, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Joseph Liouville believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Joseph Liouville hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Liouville's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Joseph Liouville to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Joseph Liouville would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Joseph Liouville to do so.
Joseph Liouville tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged or unknown to the public. Liouville may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert himself or get up in front of an audience.
Joseph Liouville 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. Joseph has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Joseph sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Joseph really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Joseph Liouville also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Joseph expects the best, and usually gets it.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Liouville's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Joseph Liouville 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.
Realistic and practical, Joseph Liouville sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Liouville possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Joseph Liouville also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Liouville often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Joseph Liouville also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Joseph's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
