Behind Krieger's nice, pleasant, easygoing demeanor (described in the previous chapter) lies a very clear-eyed, objective, no-nonsense person. This aspect of Krieger's character is described in more detail below.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Krieger. Robby Krieger will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Robby Krieger has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Robby Krieger seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Robbie has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Robby Krieger has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Robby Krieger plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Krieger.
Krieger's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Robby Krieger prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Krieger invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and his inner life.
Robby Krieger is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Robbie does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Krieger, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
While Robby Krieger deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, he is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in his affections. Krieger can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
He may have had a demanding and perfectionist or absent father. In any case, a lack of support and approval, a great deal of responsibility at an early age and an underlying feeling that he can never quite measure up may hold Krieger back. While he may encounter a great deal of adversity and struggle alone through many of life's trials, this makes Robby Krieger tough and determined. However, Krieger should beware of becoming cynical, too hard on himself, and too demanding and critical of others.
