Even though he is emotionally intense and can be somewhat of a pressure cooker at times (as described on the previous page), Ludwig Wittgenstein is very grounded and stable at heart, as described in more detail below. His essentially sensible, practical nature enables Ludwig Wittgenstein to direct some of his powerful feelings and drives into productive channels.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Wittgenstein's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Ludwig Wittgenstein has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Ludwig Wittgenstein will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Wittgenstein can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Ludwig Wittgenstein also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Ludwig Wittgenstein has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Wittgenstein for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Ludwig Wittgenstein usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Ludwig Wittgenstein also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Ludwig has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Wittgenstein's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Ludwig Wittgenstein lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Ludwig Wittgenstein's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Wittgenstein can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Ludwig Wittgenstein 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. Ludwig Wittgenstein has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Ludwig Wittgenstein is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Ludwig does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Wittgenstein, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Ludwig has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win Wittgenstein many allies and successes in life.
Ludwig Wittgenstein has a restless and somewhat nervous manner and he attracts attention through his initiative and originality. He is drawn to unusual friends and acquaintances, and because of his confidence may be regarded as a leader in his sphere.
