Roger B. Chaffee
Not only is Roger B. Chaffee restless and adventurous (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a rebellious, unconventional streak and really wants to have a significant impact on the world. He is a very active person and likely to be involved in community affairs as well as successful in his business or career.
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, Roger B. Chaffee 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, Chaffee can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Roger 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. Roger B. Chaffee 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. Roger B. Chaffee seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Roger makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Roger B. Chaffee 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. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Roger B. Chaffee stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Roger B. Chaffee was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Roger 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.
The urge to learn and communicate is essential to Roger B. Chaffee, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Chaffee is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Roger enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
Roger B. Chaffee tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Roger B. Chaffee has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
He is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make Roger B. Chaffee a winner.
Roger has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Roger B. Chaffee tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, he never gives up on his hopes for the future. Chaffee tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
While Roger B. Chaffee does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Chaffee's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Roger B. Chaffee 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.
Roger B. Chaffee has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Roger likes to be in control of himself.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Roger B. Chaffee that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Chaffee can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
He is an original! Roger B. Chaffee radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things he is interested in, and conveys this to others, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Roger does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
He is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Roger B. Chaffee does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Chaffee's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Roger B. Chaffee and shape important life decisions and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
His emotions are in tune with his intentions and Roger B. Chaffee goes about his business with complete oneness. Roger B. Chaffee has a positive attitude towards life and a high spirit of enterprise. There could be a strong tie between Roger and his mother or his wife.
Roger has the ability to stand on him own feet and use the power of his own personality to attain success. Roger B. Chaffee needs to be a leader and he has a strong desire to obtain power and authority. It is imperative to Chaffee that he be out in front of the parade.
