Behind Dysart's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), he is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Dysart's character is described in more detail in this chapter.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Richard Dysart believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Dysart's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Richard Dysart craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Richard likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Richard Dysart loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Richard Dysart also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Dysart, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Richard Dysart believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Richard Dysart hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Dysart's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Richard Dysart to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Richard Dysart would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Richard Dysart to do so.
Richard Dysart has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Richard enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents be they artistic, athletic or intellectual. Richard Dysart has a strong sense of pride.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Richard Dysart often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, he identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Richard Dysart insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Richard 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.
