Although Wiley Post seems rather serious and conservative (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he has a very idealistic soul, as described below. He may feel that he is always getting in his own way, holding himself in check even when he really wants to take off and soar. His cautious, pragmatic attitude can help balance his tendency to be overly optimistic and to occasionally go overboard. His enterprising nature, combined with his circumspect and prudent outlook on life, could help Wiley Post be very successful in business.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Wiley Post, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Wiley Post probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Post can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Wiley Post has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Post always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Wiley Post has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Wiley has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Post expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Wiley's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Wiley Post enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Post.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Post. Wiley Post has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Wiley Post may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Wiley Post feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, he identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Wiley Post insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Wiley needs a lifestyle that allows him to be spontaneous. He often feels that he is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
He is strong-willed, forceful and independent. Post knows what he wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. Wiley Post tends to judge himself and others quite severely, but he is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
Wiley Post 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.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to him. Wiley Post probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. He tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Wiley's well-being.
