Behind McCarthy's forthright and candid manner described in the previous chapter, there is a very private, even secretive, person. He is more complex and keeps more inside than his direct, straightforward appearance would suggest.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Joseph McCarthy is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Joseph McCarthy usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Joseph McCarthy also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Joseph McCarthy commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Joseph merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When McCarthy has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Joseph will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Joseph does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. McCarthy can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. McCarthy can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Joseph McCarthy emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Joseph McCarthy loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Joseph never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Joseph McCarthy tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Joseph McCarthy invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Joseph feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Joseph McCarthy can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
Joseph McCarthy has a powerful personality and a tendency to run roughshod over others. Joseph tends to inflict his will on them whether or not they are receptive. He is likely to gain respect from others through the demonstration of physical strength and bravery.
Joseph McCarthy loves to entertain and likes to cultivate social contacts. He enjoys forming close personal relationships with others and most of them should be harmonious. Joseph prefers teamwork rather than separate efforts to realize his goals.
