Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. Matt Dillon needs to be especially wary of the tendency to be oblivious to the personal feelings of others; otherwise he sometimes hurts others' feelings without realizing it.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Matt Dillon cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Dillon can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Matt has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Matt Dillon probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Matt Dillon seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Matt makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Matt Dillon thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Matt Dillon stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Matt Dillon was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Matt has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Matt Dillon has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Dillon can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Matt Dillon feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Dillon's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Matt Dillon is able to proceed in his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Matt's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Matt Dillon has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Matt Dillon has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
While Matt Dillon does have a lot of drive, he frequently holds himself back. Learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!) is one of his tasks.
Matt Dillon has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Matt likes to be in control of himself.
