Robert Evans seems much more objective, unemotional and matter-of-fact than he really is. Despite his fussiness and perfectionism (described in the previous chapter), he is actually very caring and loving. Robert Evans needs to make sure to openly express his feelings because otherwise, others do not realize how much he cares about them.
Robert has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Evans to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Evans tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Robert likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Robert Evans has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Robert Evans than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Robert Evans takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Robert Evans feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Robert Evans needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Robert Evans becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Robert Evans functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Evans often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Robert Evans also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Evans' strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Evans. Robert Evans has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Robert Evans may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Robert Evans also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Robert expects the best, and usually gets it.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Evans' optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Robert Evans 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.
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 Evans back. While he may encounter a great deal of adversity and struggle alone through many of life's trials, this makes Robert Evans tough and determined. However, Evans should beware of becoming cynical, too hard on himself, and too demanding and critical of others.
Robert has the ability to stand on him own feet and use the power of his own personality to attain success. Robert Evans needs to be a leader and he has a strong desire to obtain power and authority. It is imperative to Evans that he be out in front of the parade.
