Although it may seem that he is just patiently plodding along, Maury Povich is actually quite shrewd and has a clear purpose in mind. He is far more astute and ambitious than his rather gentle, forbearing manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Povich. Maury Povich will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Maury Povich has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Maury Povich seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Maury has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Maury Povich has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Maury Povich plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Povich.
Povich's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Povich. Maury Povich 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. Maury Povich may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Maury Povich 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 Maury does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Povich, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
While Maury Povich deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, he is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in his affections. Povich can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
Maury Povich has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Povich also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
He is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on his agenda. Maury Povich confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Povich to claim his own.
Maury Povich has a basic need to fit in with others and is always willing to cooperate. He enjoys working with others as a team and is a well liked comrade.
