Though Josh Lucas 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 Josh mentally sharp, articulate and clever.
Josh Lucas 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. Lucas grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Josh Lucas craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Josh Lucas 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 Josh 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 Lucas.
Josh Lucas 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 Josh had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Josh Lucas 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.
Josh Lucas 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 Josh Lucas 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. Josh 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 Lucas. Josh Lucas 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. Josh Lucas may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Josh Lucas tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Josh Lucas has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Lucas occasionally gamble, splurge, or overextend himself in ways that may be quite at odds with his usual way of doing things. Exaggerating his accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up his own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Josh Lucas also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable him to recover from the negative consequences of his excesses, and to learn from them.
Josh Lucas tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he could have been dominated in his relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Lucas may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain his desires in underhanded ways.
Josh's hypersensitivity to his environment is apt to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Josh Lucas more than most people.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Josh often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. Lucas is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Josh Lucas tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Josh Lucas both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
