When reading Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua's description in the preceding chapter, one would never guess that behind his direct and self-assured manner lies a great deal of caution and self-doubt. Part of Rama V wants to take risks and forge ahead; the other part is far more cautious and sees all the ways his ventures could fail. Moreover, as mentioned below, precision and meticulous attention to detail are actually strong points of Chulalongkorn the Great's, though one might be deceived at first by his impetuous manner.
At heart Rama V is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Rama V has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Rama V often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Rama V likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Chulalongkorn the Great has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Rama V seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Rama V analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Rama V's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua 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, Rama V enjoys fine health as well.
While Rama V does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
Realistic and practical, Rama V sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Rama V also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua depends a great deal on other people's reactions to him and rarely acts until he sees how he affects others. Rama V must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Chulalongkorn the Great should also learn to rely heavily on his hunches.
Maintaining relationships with friends and associates is very important to Rama V and he keeps in touch with them through his shared interests. His friends are likely to be very supportive to Phra Chula Chomklao Chaoyuhua in everything he does.
