Although it may seem that he is just patiently plodding along, Quinn Allman is actually quite shrewd and has a clear purpose in mind. He is far more astute and ambitious than his rather gentle, forbearing manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Allman. Quinn Allman will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Quinn Allman has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Quinn Allman seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Quinn has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Quinn Allman has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Quinn Allman plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Allman.
Allman's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.

He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Quinn often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires.

Quinn Allman tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Quinn Allman both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
