Much of what is stated in the previous chapter and this one is similar. His well-honed analytical skills should help William Friedkin be successful. His tendency to criticize rather than empathize, however, often makes others feel that he does not appreciate or respect them.
At heart William Friedkin is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. William Friedkin has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Friedkin 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 William Friedkin 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 Friedkin 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. William Friedkin 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 Friedkin. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Friedkin can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Friedkin 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. William 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. Friedkin can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though William Friedkin 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. William Friedkin analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Friedkin allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
William Friedkin 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. Friedkin may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert himself or get up in front of an audience.
The above description of William Friedkin is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. William Friedkin tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
He may have had a demanding and perfectionist or absent father. In any case, a lack of support and approval, a great deal of responsibility at an early age and an underlying feeling that he can never quite measure up may hold Friedkin back. While he may encounter a great deal of adversity and struggle alone through many of life's trials, this makes William Friedkin tough and determined. However, Friedkin should beware of becoming cynical, too hard on himself, and too demanding and critical of others.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of William Friedkin that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Friedkin can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Friedkin, and he does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how he is going to live his life. William Friedkin craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. William Friedkin possesses inventive and creative genius.
William Friedkin has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance he has to overcome. Whatever he does, he knows what he wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
