Although Kiefer Sutherland seems rather serious and conservative (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he has a very idealistic soul, as described below. He may feel that he is always getting in his own way, holding himself in check even when he really wants to take off and soar. His careful, pragmatic attitude can help balance his tendency to be overly optimistic and to go overboard sometimes. His enterprising nature combined with his circumspect and prudent outlook on life can enable Kiefer Sutherland to be very successful in business.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to take the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is an independent soul, freedom-loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom is odious to him.
To Kiefer Sutherland, life is a journey, an adventure, endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Kiefer Sutherland probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus, and concentration are not his strong points. Sutherland can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations, and hopes for the future and is usually pursuing some distant goal. Kiefer Sutherland has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Sutherland always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Kiefer Sutherland has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Kiefer has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, attending to all of the details and practical requirements of implementing his theories is bothersome to him.
Sutherland expresses himself in a very open, direct, and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Kiefer's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Kiefer Sutherland does enjoy being in close relationships, but he needs freedom also and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun, and his zest for life would be the right companion for Sutherland.
Kiefer Sutherland 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. Asserting himself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Sutherland.
Impulsive, restless, and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Kiefer Sutherland is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom, and discovery. Sutherland has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from the mainstream of society. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
