Although William Masters has a warm, dramatic side and he really likes to show off or stand out in some way (as described on the previous page), inside he is much too grounded, conservative and cautious to let himself get too overwrought or wild. And while Masters may seem kind hearted and generous, he is quite unsentimental and businesslike on issues that are important to him.
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 Masters. William Masters 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.
William Masters has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. William Masters 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. William 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. William Masters 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, William Masters 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 Masters.
Masters' 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 energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of William Masters', and he is quite a perfectionist!
Masters can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
William Masters 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. William Masters has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
He is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on his agenda. William Masters confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Masters to claim his own.
