His self-reliant, independent spirit described in the previous chapter, combined with his strong sense of community and larger social issues, compel Jones to take a strong stand on various ideological and political issues. Terry Jones feels that others are often too unconcerned and uninvolved in larger social issues that affect them directly. Political activism or being a "warrior" for a cause that is dear to his heart may be Terry's path in life.
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, Terry Jones 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, Jones can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Terry 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. Terry Jones 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. Terry Jones seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Terry makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Terry Jones 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. Terry Jones stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Terry Jones was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Terry 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.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Terry Jones really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to him.
Terry Jones is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Terry does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Jones, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Terry Jones overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Terry Jones attends to his emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of his intuition, dreams and gut feelings, he will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
Although Terry Jones prefers harmony and accord, he also has a confrontational side.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Terry Jones often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
Terry 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 Jones many allies and successes in life.
