Mike has two conflicting interests that he tries to resolve. As described in the previous chapter, he loves to nurture and support others, and family relationships are very important to Bloomberg. However, there is another side to Mike Bloomberg: at heart he is a very independent person and he needs to participate in community affairs and be involved with the world at large. Having a meaningful career and being involved in a larger circle of friends and associates are important to him as well. There are many ways to fulfill both sides of his. He may become an advocate for the importance of families' needs, women's and children's issues in the work place and in society in general. Or he may simply bring a personal, supportive, human element into the impersonal atmosphere of business or academia. One negative possibility, however, is that he can become very dogmatic about his own personal concerns and biases, not realizing how many of his social, political, and even scientific views are rooted in personal experiences rather than objective criteria.
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 that means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships Mike Bloomberg 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, Bloomberg can be enormously stubborn, opinionated, and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Mike has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to live by his ideals, but his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences, and needs. Mike Bloomberg 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. Mike Bloomberg seems rather self-sufficient and detached emotionally because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Mike makes up his mind on an issue, he is difficult to sway and can be rather dogmatic.
Mike Bloomberg 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 community affairs, social organizations, and groups of all kinds, or to have a keen interest in such. 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. Mike Bloomberg stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and in terms of ideas. When young, Mike Bloomberg was very influenced by his peers and by group pressures and by all the "latest crazes". Mike has an experimental mind and is attracted by the novel.
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.
Mike Bloomberg craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable, or taboo. He may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know Mike very intimately. Mike Bloomberg is rarely content with himself and his life, and he has an inner urge to be continually going farther or deeper than him ever have before. Mike has also a strong interest in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions, and self-doubt often plague him. Mike Bloomberg has a cautious, careful, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Mike Bloomberg tends to work and struggle more than he needs to, and to take himself too seriously.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Mike Bloomberg that rebels against rules and restrictions and answering to outside authority. Bloomberg can feel torn between conforming or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
Impulsive, restless, and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Mike Bloomberg is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom, and discovery. Bloomberg has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from the mainstream of society. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
