Much of what is stated in the previous chapter and this one is similar. His well-honed analytical skills should help Van Johnson be successful. His tendency to criticize rather than empathize, however, often makes others feel that he does not appreciate or respect them.
At heart Van Johnson is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Van Johnson has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Van Johnson can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Van Johnson often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Van Johnson can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Van Johnson likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Van Johnson. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Van Johnson can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Van Johnson tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Charles has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Van Johnson can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Van Johnson seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Van Johnson analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Van Johnson allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
Van Johnson tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting himself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Van Johnson.
Charles 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 Van Johnson many allies and successes in life.
Van Johnson undergoes deep, transformative changes in his life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because he does not avoid the depths, Van Johnson has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Charles is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people he comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Van Johnson is a force to be reckoned with.
