William S. Burroughs
Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. William S. Burroughs needs to be especially wary of the tendency to be oblivious to the personal feelings of others; otherwise he sometimes hurts others' feelings without realizing it.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, William S. Burroughs cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Burroughs can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. William has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. William S. Burroughs probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. William S. Burroughs seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once William makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
William S. Burroughs thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. William S. Burroughs stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, William S. Burroughs was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". William has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
William S. Burroughs 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. Asserting himself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Burroughs.
William S. Burroughs 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 William does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Burroughs, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
While William S. Burroughs deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, he is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in his affections. Burroughs can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
Realistic and practical, William S. Burroughs sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Burroughs possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. William S. Burroughs also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Burroughs often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
He may be a bit high-strung and over-zealous in the pursuit of his endeavors. Burroughs always seems to be in a hurry and has the ability to evaluate situations quickly. William S. Burroughs has a brilliant mind and possibly could invent something.
With his charm and outgoing personality William S. Burroughs has no trouble attracting people and he enjoys pleasant and congenial relationships with them. He may choose social contact with generous or wealthy people and would prefer to live in a beautiful home.
