Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. His enthusiasm and outgoing, forward-looking nature is a gift, but Noam Chomsky should also be wary of the tendency to overlook details and be oblivious to others' personal feelings.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Noam Chomsky, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Noam Chomsky probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Chomsky can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Noam Chomsky has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Chomsky always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Noam Chomsky has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Noam has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Chomsky expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Noam's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Noam Chomsky enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Chomsky.
Noam Chomsky has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Chomsky can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Noam Chomsky feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Noam Chomsky 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. Noam Chomsky has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Noam Chomsky has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Noam likes to be in control of himself.
He is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Noam Chomsky does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Chomsky's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Noam Chomsky and shape important decisions in his life, and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Chomsky is very thorough and takes his time thinking things through. He enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Noam Chomsky also could find traveling very rewarding.
He is well aware of his limitations and has a strong desire to go his own way in life. There is a note of gravity to Noam's personality and he appears somewhat somber. It is not easy for Noam Chomsky to relax and enjoy and he prefers to work in seclusion.
