Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. Skip Battin needs to be especially wary of the tendency to be oblivious to the personal feelings of others; otherwise he sometimes hurts others' feelings without realizing it.
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, Skip Battin 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, Battin can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Skip 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. Skip Battin 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. Skip Battin seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Skip makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Skip Battin 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. Skip Battin stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Skip Battin was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Skip 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.
Skip Battin has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Battin can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Skip Battin feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Battin's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Skip Battin is able to proceed in his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Skip's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Battin always seems to find the right words to verbalize his feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Skip Battin also has a keen sense of beauty and he probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
He prefers more serious kinds of conversation with his friends and neighbors rather than small talk. Because his communication is clear and concise, Skip Battin can impress others by taking control of negotiations or business dealings.
Skip Battin has a basic need to fit in with others and is always willing to cooperate. He enjoys working with others as a team and is a well liked comrade.
