Watt will notice that his description below highlights many of the same points raised in Chapter 2. Because he is so self-reliant, independent and unwilling to compromise or even cooperate with others, Robert Watson-Watt is likely to be self-employed or at least have a job that allows him to work at his own pace with minimal supervision.
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. Robert Watson-Watt 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 Watt's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Robert Watson-Watt 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. Sir Robert likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Robert Watson-Watt 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, Robert Watson-Watt also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Watt, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Robert Watson-Watt believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Robert Watson-Watt 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 Watt's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Robert Watson-Watt to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Robert Watson-Watt would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Robert Watson-Watt to do so.
Robert Watson-Watt 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. Watt may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert himself or get up in front of an audience.
Sir Robert has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Sir Robert and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Robert Watson-Watt needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities may say.
