Werner Erhard's practical, realistic approach to life (described in the previous chapter), combined with his perfectionism (described below), makes for a very skilled and talented person. Erhard can excel at any task that requires skill, dedication and attention to detail. Sometimes, however, he has difficulty balancing work and pleasure, and he should avoid the tendency to vacillate between extremes of austere, hard work and laziness.
At heart Werner Erhard is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Werner Erhard has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Erhard 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 Werner Erhard 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 Erhard 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. Werner Erhard 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 Erhard. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Erhard can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Erhard 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. Werner 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. Erhard can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Werner Erhard 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. Werner Erhard analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Erhard allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
Werner Erhard has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Werner enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way.

Werner Erhard 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 Werner does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Erhard, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Werner Erhard often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Werner has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Werner sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Werner really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Sensitive and imaginative, he is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Werner Erhard is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Werner has an abundance of dreams, visions and longings, but does not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them materialize. Gentle, idealistic and peace loving, Werner often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Werner has an ethereal quality about him.
Werner Erhard tends to become excited and upset at the slightest cause, generating tension with others. Werner also could encounter strange experiences or coincidences with others. He may have a feeling of being different than others and he wants to be his own person.
