In addition to having an independent spirit as described in the previous chapter, Mike Jones is also objective, pragmatic, and quite ambitious. He is likely to work his way to the top of the ladder in some corporation, academic community, or other area by his astute strategies combined with his willingness to take risks. Mike Jones aims to be the authority, the one in charge. At times his impulsiveness may be at odds with his conservative, responsible side (which is discussed below). Jones can experience an ongoing internal tension between pleasing himself and acting spontaneously versus doing what he needs to do to get ahead and realize his long-range ambitions.
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 Jones. Mike Jones 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.
Mike Jones has a thoughtful, quiet, and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Mike Jones seems to be always 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. Mike 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. Often he is authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Mike Jones has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or work to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Careful and conservative, Mike Jones plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, to play, to be spontaneous and silly, and to be weak and vulnerable sometimes, is not easy for Jones.
Jones' 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 Jones. Mike Jones 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. Mike Jones may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
The above description of Mike Jones is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Mike Jones tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
Mike Jones tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but he does not always listen as well. Mike Jones has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
His emotions are in tune with his intentions and Mike Jones goes about his business with complete oneness. Mike Jones has a positive attitude towards life and a high spirit of enterprise. There could be a strong tie between Mike and his mother or his wife.
Mike Jones 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.
