In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Morris Chestnut 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 the like through his astute strategies combined with his willingness to take risks. Morris Chestnut 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). Chestnut could experience 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 Chestnut. Morris Chestnut 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.
Morris Chestnut has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Morris Chestnut 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. Morris 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. Morris Chestnut 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, Morris Chestnut 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 Chestnut.
