Though Wade Williams seems rather dreamy, fluid, and impressionable (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is actually very realistic and well grounded. His compassion and receptivity to others' feelings discussed earlier is balanced by a rather pragmatic, businesslike, no-nonsense aspect to his character, as described below.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Williams. Wade Williams will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Wade Williams has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Wade Williams seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Wade has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Wade Williams has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Wade Williams plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Williams.
Williams' strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Williams. Wade Williams has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Wade Williams may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Wade Williams tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Wade Williams has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Wade Williams between his conscious attitudes and aspirations and his deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Wade may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with his subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in his body may well be a signal that Wade Williams is denying or suppressing the messages from his subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Wade Williams will learn to accept and express these two different sides of himself. Should he fail to do so, Williams is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect his denied or repressed qualities and seem to make his life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Wade Williams has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Wade Williams has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Williams, and he does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how he is going to live his life. Wade Williams craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. Wade Williams possesses inventive and creative genius.
Wade Williams tends to think and act bravely and has a positive and firm demeanor. Wade has what it takes to make his own way in life. He may be a bit excitable, but never shy away from a good argument.
Wade Williams 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.
