Willis Carrier's appearance and the way he comes across to others (as described on the previous page) are very congruent with his true nature (described below). He is very idealistic, and a great lover of space and freedom.
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 Willis Carrier, 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. Willis Carrier 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. Carrier 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. Willis Carrier has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Carrier always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Willis Carrier has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Willis 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.
Carrier 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, Willis' insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Willis Carrier 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 Carrier.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Carrier.
Willis Carrier has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Willis Carrier 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. Willis Carrier has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Willis Carrier 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.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Willis Carrier also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Willis expects the best, and usually gets it.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Carrier's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Willis Carrier tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Willis Carrier has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Willis Carrier tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Willis Carrier also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Willis Carrier tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he could have been dominated in his relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Carrier may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain his desires in underhanded ways.
Willis' hypersensitivity to his environment is apt to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Willis Carrier more than most people.
Willis Carrier probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Willis never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But he also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
Willis Carrier 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.
Willis Carrier tends to become excited and upset at the slightest cause, generating tension with others. Willis also could encounter strange experiences or coincidences with others. He may have a feeling of being different than others and he wants to be his own person.
