Behind Simpson's strong, proud appearance (described in the previous chapter), there is a very tender, sensitive, sentimental, feeling person. He is probably much shyer and more private than initially presumed.
O.J. has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Simpson to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Simpson tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. O.J. likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. O.J. Simpson has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to O.J. Simpson than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. O.J. Simpson takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. O.J. Simpson feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. O.J. Simpson needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise O.J. Simpson becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
O.J. Simpson functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Simpson often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. O.J. Simpson also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Simpson's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where O.J. Simpson really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to him.
O.J. has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win Simpson many allies and successes in life.
He is a bit impulsive and excitable and wants things done quickly. O.J. Simpson tends to be very impatient with anyone who is slower or less energetic than he is. Simpson will fight for what he wants but should guard against mishaps or accidents.
Simpson tends to be in a constant state of tension and seems to look for avenues to test his strength. O.J. Simpson uses all the energy at his disposal in order to succeed. Somewhat rebellious and inflexible, O.J. fights any opposition or resistance he meets.
