The way Robert Mitchum comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature so "what he sees is what you get". The description below reinforces what you read about Robert in the previous chapter.
Proud and intensely individual, Robert Mitchum really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Robert Mitchum must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Robert Mitchum needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Robert has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Robert Mitchum also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Robert Mitchum, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Robert wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Mitchum appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Robert Mitchum also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Robert Mitchum loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Robert Mitchum likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Robert needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Mitchum's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
Robert Mitchum tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting himself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Mitchum.
