Though he may appear unconventional and liberal in this thinking (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a rather conservative, grounded, practical nature, as described below. He may feel torn at times between maintaining the status quo, versus creating controversy and making waves.
His practical nature gives Stewart Granger the capacity to be very successful in business. Sometimes, however, Granger holds to his own views too obstinately and dogmatically, causing him to limit his possibilities and overlook opportunities.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Granger's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Stewart Granger has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Stewart Granger will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Granger can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Stewart Granger also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Stewart Granger has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Granger for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Stewart Granger usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Stewart Granger also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Stewart has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Granger's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Stewart Granger lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Ownership gives Stewart Granger a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Stewart also has a natural instinct for or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
The above description of Stewart Granger is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Stewart Granger 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.
Stewart has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win Granger many allies and successes in life.
Stewart Granger has a great need for security which he may seek in a partner who could be older than him and perhaps married before. Stewart Granger probably feels restrained in expressing affection, giving the impression of being cool and indifferent toward those he loves.
His vitality is very strong and he is likely to be a workaholic. If Stewart Granger is not careful, he may work so hard that he becomes exhausted, leaving himself open to physical breakdown. Stewart Granger also has a strong drive to win and to dominate others.
Stewart Granger tends to impose his will upon others in a rather ruthless way, but on the other hand he may also be imposed upon by others. Stewart feels a constant need to fight for leadership and has a great desire to become a public figure.
