Even though he has a tactful and generally pleasing way of expressing himself (as described on the previous page), Joseph Kennedy actually maintains high standards and can be quite a perfectionist (as discussed below). Inside he is more skeptical and judgmental than he appears.
At heart Joseph Kennedy is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Joseph Kennedy has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Kennedy can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Joseph Kennedy often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Kennedy can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Joseph Kennedy likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Kennedy. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Kennedy can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Kennedy tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Joseph has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Kennedy can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Joseph Kennedy seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Joseph Kennedy analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Kennedy allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
Joseph Kennedy 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. Kennedy may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert himself or get up in front of an audience.
The above description of Joseph Kennedy is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Joseph Kennedy tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
Kennedy tends to be in a constant state of tension and seems to look for avenues to test his strength. Joseph Kennedy uses all the energy at his disposal in order to succeed. Somewhat rebellious and inflexible, Joseph fights any opposition or resistance he meets.
