Though Rick Salomon seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is also quite idealistic, as described below. He may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Rick Salomon has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
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, Rick Salomon 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, Salomon can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Rick 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. Rick Salomon 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. Rick Salomon seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Rick makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Rick Salomon 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.

Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Rick Salomon stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Rick Salomon was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Rick 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.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Salomon. Rick Salomon has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Rick Salomon may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Salomon occasionally gambles, splurges or overextends himself in ways that may be at odds with his usual way of doing things. Exaggerating his accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up his own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Rick Salomon also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable him to recover from the negative consequences of his excesses, and to learn from them.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Salomon's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Rick Salomon tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Rick Salomon has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Salomon also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Rick Salomon that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Salomon can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
