Although he is intensely emotional and fervent in his loves and hates (as described on the previous page), Wesley Clark is also pragmatic and able to swing to the opposite extreme and be completely dispassionate and unsentimental, especially when it suits his overall aims.
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 Clark. Wesley Clark 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.
Wesley Clark has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Wesley Clark 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. Wesley 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. Wesley Clark 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, Wesley Clark 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 Clark.
Clark's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Ownership gives Wesley Clark a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Wesley also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Wesley Clark 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. Wesley Clark has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Wesley has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Wesley Clark tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, he never gives up on his hopes for the future. Clark tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
Wesley is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Wesley Clark is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Clark may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
