Though Paul Allen seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is also quite idealistic, as described below. He may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Paul Allen has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
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, Paul Allen 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, Allen can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Paul 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. Paul Allen 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. Paul Allen seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Paul makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Paul Allen 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. Paul Allen stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Paul Allen was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Paul 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.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Allen. Paul Allen has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Paul Allen may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Paul Allen has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Paul Allen tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
Paul Allen has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and he likes to share his intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
He is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel his energies productively. Paul Allen may feel that everything is going to be all right, that he cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
