Although Michael Jackson approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), he also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side, as discussed below. His conflicting urges may vacillate between living passionately and dangerously, and being conservative and playing it safe.
At heart Michael Jackson is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Michael Jackson has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Jackson 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 Michael Jackson 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 Jackson 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. Michael Jackson 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 Jackson. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Jackson can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Jackson 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. Michael 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. Jackson can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Michael Jackson 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. Michael Jackson analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Jackson allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Jackson. Michael Jackson 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. Michael Jackson may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Michael Jackson takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Michael, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Michael Jackson may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
Inwardly he is zealous and fanatical, though he may hide his personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of his feelings. He is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Michael is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Michael Jackson tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and he often seeks to emulate them. Michael has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
Jackson alternates between aggression and apathy and sometimes feels that he is unable to meet all the demands made on him. Once Michael Jackson becomes aware of what he needs to do, however, he is capable of working long and hard, not giving up until his work is done.
