Behind Newman's rather cautious attitude and conservative appearance (mentioned in the previous chapter) lies a much more unconventional soul. He may seesaw between the traditional and the unorthodox, the pragmatic and the idealistic, or conformism and nonconformism. Paul Newman needs to find a balance or reconcile between these extremes. He may view himself as being more progressive than he is because Paul Newman surrounds himself with middle-of-the-road people. Moreover, his combination of objectivity and interest in world affairs and larger issues is likely to enable Paul Newman to become very successful at his business or whatever career he chooses.
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 Newman 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, Newman 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 Newman 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 Newman 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 Newman 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 Newman stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Paul Newman 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.
Paul Newman 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, Newman can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Paul Newman 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.
His mind is very active and his judgment usually is sound. Although Paul Newman's thinking is influenced by his feelings, he is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. He is in control of his feelings and is able to express them rationally.
Newman might be called the eternal optimist and has a very peace-loving nature. He seems to be happy and content, generous and popular in social circles. Paul Newman also has a good sense for business and likes to carry out enterprises on a large scale.
Paul Newman has a strong need to be with people whom he is emotionally close to. He is very sensitive to others emotional needs, lending a sympathetic ear to their problems. Peace and harmony in his personal surrounding and relationships are very important to Newman.
