Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
Though Zulfikar Ali Bhutto seems rather dreamy, fluid, and impressionable (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is actually very realistic and well grounded. His compassion and receptivity to others' feelings discussed earlier is balanced by a rather pragmatic, businesslike, no-nonsense aspect to his character, as described below.
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 Bhutto. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto 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.
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto 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. Zulfikar 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. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto 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, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto 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 Bhutto.
Bhutto's 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 career, reputation and public image are very important to Bhutto. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto 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. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto 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. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Bhutto to claim his own.
