Not only is Ray Manzarek restless and adventurous (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a rebellious, unconventional streak and really wants to have a significant impact on the world. He is a very active person and likely to be involved in community affairs as well as successful in his business or career.
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, Ray Manzarek 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, Manzarek can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Ray 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. Ray Manzarek 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. Ray Manzarek seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Ray makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Ray Manzarek 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. Ray Manzarek stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Ray Manzarek was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Ray 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.
Ownership gives Ray Manzarek a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Ray also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Ray Manzarek tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Ray Manzarek has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Ray Manzarek tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he could have been dominated in his relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Manzarek may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain his desires in underhanded ways.
Ray's hypersensitivity to his environment is apt to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Ray Manzarek more than most people.
