Behind Carter's quiet, unassuming and cautious front (described in the previous chapter) lies a much more unconventional, liberal-thinking, freedom-loving soul, described below.
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 it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Nick Carter 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, Carter can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Nick has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Nick Carter 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. Nick Carter seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Nick makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Nick Carter 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, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. 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. Nick Carter stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Nick Carter was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Nick has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
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.
Nick Carter has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Nick enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Nick Carter has a strong sense of pride.
Nick Carter tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Nick Carter has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Carter occasionally gamble, splurge, or overextend himself in ways that may be quite at odds with his usual way of doing things. Exaggerating his accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up his own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Nick Carter also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable him to recover from the negative consequences of his excesses, and to learn from them.
He is strong-willed, forceful and independent. Carter knows what he wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. Nick Carter tends to judge himself and others quite severely, but he is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
