Behind Pittman's rather lighthearted, witty and restless demeanor described in the previous chapter, lies a sensitive, poetic soul. Lari Pittman may cover up his sensitivity with light banter and cleverness - or he may use his verbal and communication skills to express his imagination, kindness and refined sensitivity.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Lari Pittman as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Pittman may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Lari Pittman usually keeps to himself.
Lari shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Lari has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Lari Pittman sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Pittman tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Lari has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Pittman will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Pittman tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Lari Pittman does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Lari Pittman has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Pittman more than it bothers him.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Pittman. Lari Pittman 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. Lari Pittman may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Lari Pittman 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. Lari Pittman has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Lari Pittman has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and he likes to share his intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
His physique tends to be sensitive and his vitality may be a bit low. Lari Pittman is very impressionable and somewhat unrealistic. Sometimes his idealism could be confused or impractical, and Pittman can be rebellious or else apathetic.
