Although Roscoe Arbuckle appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Fatty Arbuckle sometimes feels torn between these two facets of his character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Roscoe Arbuckle often think that he is a "softy", but later find out that he is strong willed and pursues his goals aggressively.
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. Roscoe Arbuckle 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 Fatty Arbuckle's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Roscoe Arbuckle 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. Roscoe likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Roscoe Arbuckle 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, Roscoe Arbuckle also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Fatty Arbuckle, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Roscoe Arbuckle believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Roscoe Arbuckle 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 Fatty Arbuckle's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Roscoe Arbuckle to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Roscoe Arbuckle would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Roscoe Arbuckle to do so.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Fatty Arbuckle. Roscoe Arbuckle has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Roscoe Arbuckle may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
The above description of Roscoe Arbuckle is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Roscoe Arbuckle tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
Roscoe Arbuckle 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. Roscoe Arbuckle has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Fatty Arbuckle occasionally gambles, splurges or overextends himself in ways that may be at odds with his usual way of doing things. Exaggerating his accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up his own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Roscoe Arbuckle also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable him to recover from the negative consequences of his excesses, and to learn from them.
Roscoe Arbuckle undergoes deep, transformative changes in his life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because he does not avoid the depths, Fatty Arbuckle has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Roscoe is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people he comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Roscoe Arbuckle is a force to be reckoned with.
