Kendall has a dual nature. Two tendencies dwell within Kendall’s psyche: one is related to Kendall’s instincts and endows Kendall with supreme strength and intense material desires, and the other flows from a higher psychic authority, the superego or human ideal, and inspires Kendall with a precise awareness of Kendall’s purpose and dignity as a human being among Kendall’s fellows. The distinctiveness, if not the opposition, between these two tendencies is likely to trouble Kendall’s quest for inner harmony at times.
However, the difficulty Kendall must overcome is not limited to a conflict between these two natures. Instead, Kendall must choose which direction the energy generated by the contradiction will take. In other words, in more practical terms, if Kendall identifies with the power residing in society and the complex interactions of human beings, Kendall can find one goal, one direction in which the power can lead. The positive side of this nature is the cohesive and all-encompassing understanding Kendall derives from it. In daily life, Kendall could be a resourceful and valuable organizer, designer, leader, or legislator. In fact, Kendall has the native skills necessary for managing and leading a team of co-workers. The coherence of Kendall’s thought is apt to enable Kendall to budget and organize human energies for maximum profit and minimum loss. Overlooking from the outset trivial details and a tendency to be unable to see the forest for the trees, Kendall can implement global, methodical systems and structures to solve problems.
On another level, Kendall has a nature profoundly attached to morality and ethics. Kendall conceives of ethics as a practical system for human relations, not an idealistic and unattainable dream. Indeed, it should be noted that it is inexact to call Kendall an idealist. If Kendall seeks an ideal, it is based on what already exists, by organizing it and putting it into practice, by seeing it operate smoothly and efficiently. Kendall’s originality comes from the fact that Kendall always strives to go beyond common sense in search of a new perspective, which would enrich the spirit and transform values.
All of these skills and resources predispose Kendall to devote Kendall’s self to society. In the process, however, Kendall is likely to overdo it to such a degree that Kendall’s own personality is overshadowed. That is, Kendall would identify too heavily with Kendall’s social mask (Kendall’s persona) and lose awareness of Kendall’s individuality.

Sensitivity – Impetuosity – Imagination – Enthusiasm – Eccentricity – Group spirit – Savings and thrift – Impressionability – Suspicion – Analytical mind – Obstinacy – Worldliness – Premonition – Projection.
Torn by Kendall’s yearnings for freedom and independence and Kendall’s undeniable need for security, Kendall will have to work hard in the early part of Kendall’s life to find inner harmony. Although Kendall is attracted to novelty, like exotic travel destinations and exploration, Kendall is aware that some inner necessity links Kendall to a small circle of interests and friends. Kendall may reproach Kendall for Kendall’s egotism.
Because Kendall is subject to the pull of these contradictory desires, Kendall’s daily behavior could alternate between boundless enthusiasm and anxiety. However, Kendall’s imaginative talents could enable Kendall to experience fantastic adventures without leaving the comfort of Kendall’s own home, and here lies the fulfillment of Kendall’s aspirations.
As an adult, Kendall will probably find the feeling of security and confidence whose lack troubled Kendall earlier in life. At that point, Kendall’s considerable human qualities will blossom. Kendall’s free spirit will be open to the intuitive messages arriving from Kendall’s unconscious, and Kendall’s amazingly fertile imagination will become a source of pleasure and creativity.
