Behind Abernathy's rather prudent, shrewd and guarded manner (described in the previous chapter), he is really kind, altruistic and idealistic. He is also much more vulnerable than he appears. He is very prudent and sharp in handling some of his affairs, but occasionally Abernathy's deep-rooted idealism can cloud his vision. Moreover, he may wage an internal battle, swinging between traditional, conservative pragmatism and lofty idealism.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Ralph Abernathy as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Abernathy may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Ralph Abernathy usually keeps to himself.
Ralph shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Ralph has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Ralph Abernathy sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Abernathy tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Ralph has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Abernathy will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Abernathy tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Ralph Abernathy does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Ralph Abernathy has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Abernathy more than it bothers him.
Ownership gives Ralph Abernathy a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Ralph also has a natural instinct for or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Abernathy can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Ralph Abernathy enjoys fine health as well.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, he identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Ralph Abernathy insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Ralph needs a lifestyle that allows him to be spontaneous. He often feels that he is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
Along with his energy and drive, Ralph Abernathy has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Abernathy, as well as a doer and a fighter. Ralph wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for him.
Ralph Abernathy tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Abernathy may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve his desires in underhanded ways.
Ralph's hypersensitivity to his environment is likely to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Ralph Abernathy more than most people.
Abernathy has a strong will and great determination and is willing to work hard to reach his goals. Ralph Abernathy often takes on more than his share and labors untiringly, sparing himself no pain in his work. Ralph should guard against over-exerting himself physically.
