Bob Smiley has an ideal of which he is only partially conscious, but it has a great influence on his psychology. He is determined to preserve his integrity and purity. Even though he may not be aware of it, he is often preoccupied by this predicament. How can he live in this world and remain true to himself? How can he succeed in life without sacrificing his ideals? It’s the eternal philosophical dilemma.
Bob has developed a solution, however; he elaborates a fairly strict code of behavior and tries to obey it as much as possible. The path that he walks in life is straight and narrow. He yearns for a life that would reflect the ideal he has set for himself, as free as possible from irrational mysteries and human failings. In fact, although he may sometimes seem a bit rigid, a bit lacking in perspective, it is because his mind understands the macrocosm through the microcosm, and he must observe the completed system before he will form his opinion.
He is especially good at sorting and choosing, because his mind is like a filter. It rejects the impurities and only accepts the pure and useful. Analysis, deductive reasoning, and a sense of experimentation are his qualities. He possesses great meticulousness and precision which make him a quick and efficient worker. However, he may rely too strongly on his analytical faculties, to the detriment of an overall perception of reality.
He likes purity and therefore justice. Thus, he is sensitive to human suffering, especially as a result of social injustice, and he will try to remedy the situation according to what he has learned. Once again, the overriding themes of his personality emerge. He wants to preserve an ideal, avoid deterioration, change, adulteration. He is offended by imperfection and try to find ways to correct it. He is eager to help, to be useful, to serve a great cause, but he sometimes does not know whom or what he seeks to serve. Whatever purpose he adopts, he must learn to help without surrendering himself entirely; he tends to try to disappear into the background of a hierarchy. He is sometimes attracted by readymade systems, which soothe a certain anxiety he has.
He wouldn’t mind devoting himself to a state, a big corporation, or a dogma. It would be reasonable and satisfying. But he sometimes forgot to rebel a bit – to evaluate whether the end justifies the means. He is reassured by predictability. When he commits himself, he wants to know exactly
