Bob Gosse is a loner who is sometimes withdrawn and has a fairly chilly, nonchalant personality. Although he is introverted, he is extremely rational. He is wary at times of the outer world, his senses, and even his intellect, because they might all be sources of illusion. His quest for identity with a spiritual whole gives him a voracious appetite for ideologies, structures, and theories. Although readings which others would find abstract and intellectual impress him as reflections of important and lively realities, he likes reflecting on difficult problems and enjoys solving them. There is no difficulty which can discourage him from the goal he has decided to reach for himself. His depth of vision, common sense, and caution, his tendency to be a bit calculating and sometimes conservative, his stamina, and his independent mind all give him the ability to tackle difficult tasks. His concentration gives him an undeniable gift for abstraction and conjecture. As a theoretician, he aims to discover what is essential and universal. Indeed, he seeks to go beyond what is relative, contingent upon circumstances, or inadequate, to reach the absolute truth he fervently desires. His budding intuition is extremely receptive to the sacred or holy. As a result, the ideal or cause he espouses will be related to the concept of universality or totality. Since his lifetime adventure is based in part on this absolute truth, it is important for him to make an effort to define its nature. What sort of universality are you striving for; what spiritual Everest (in yourself or outwardly) are you trying to scale? In fact, you tend to like mountain climbing, because of the effort it requires. It’s a great joy for you. Alone at the peak, you can contemplate and understand everything. In pursuit of this absolute center (positive or negative) which animates you, you are shrewd and persistent. Stamina and endurance are resources of which you are quite confident. Your existence and organism are arranged to optimize them; others may consider you slow, but you are really just playing it safe, because, unconsciously, you know time is on your side. When you take an initiative, it is after careful forethought and preparation. Your great composure, ability to resist and overcome obstacles and wickedness, and your foresight give you a great potential to accomplish total self-control. However, you must beware of one pitfall: excess. You tend to be a bit too rigid and intolerant; in intellectual pursuits, you can tend to be dogmatic, hermetic, or conform
