At first he may simply come across as clever and witty (as described on the previous page), but it soon becomes clear that there are ideals and causes that he takes very much to heart. As described below, Smokey Robinson is an innovator and an idealist at heart. He is an active person who needs to participate in community activities and is likely to be successful at whatever academic or business profession he chooses.
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, Smokey Robinson 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, Smokey Robinson can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. William 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. Smokey Robinson 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. Smokey Robinson seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once William makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Smokey Robinson 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. Smokey Robinson stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Smokey Robinson was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". William 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.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Smokey Robinson. Smokey Robinson has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Smokey Robinson may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Smokey Robinson can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Smokey Robinson enjoys fine health as well.
While Smokey Robinson 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!).
Smokey Robinson has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Smokey Robinson also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
He is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Smokey Robinson 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 Smokey Robinson's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Smokey Robinson and shape important decisions in his life, and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Smokey Robinson feels spiritually bonded with his friends, partners or associates. He is likely to have a good rapport and harmony in his relationships with the opposite sex and enjoys spending time with his partner.
Smokey Robinson has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
