Inside, he is quite different from what his freewheeling, confident, playful demeanor (mentioned in the previous chapter) would suggest. Although Jarre likes to theorize and speculate and dream big dreams, he is basically clearheaded and practical. However, Maurice Jarre also worries and frets a great deal, although others may not know this from his jovial demeanor.
At heart Maurice Jarre is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Maurice Jarre has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Jarre can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Maurice Jarre often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Jarre can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Maurice Jarre likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Jarre. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Jarre can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Jarre tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Maurice has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Jarre can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Maurice Jarre seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Maurice Jarre analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Jarre allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Jarre.
Maurice Jarre has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Maurice Jarre 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. Maurice Jarre has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Maurice Jarre overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Maurice Jarre attends to his emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of his intuition, dreams and gut feelings, he will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
If he follows his true nature, his life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Maurice Jarre cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Maurice finds it difficult to conform. His offbeat interests and tastes lead Jarre to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Maurice Jarre has a very creative, inventive streak.
Maurice Jarre is a restless spirit, a bit self-willed, and he has a tendency to overstrain his nervous system. He is easily aroused and quick to explode when things do not meet his expectations. He is highly individualistic, resourceful and determined.
Maurice Jarre has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
