Tim is prone to very clear-cut strengths and weaknesses. While Tim is not a demonstrative, neither is he an indecisive or vague person. Once the mind is made up and action is being taken you can guarantee that it is taken in big, bold colors, not shades of gray. Tim's pros and cons usually in the eye of the beholder as well, a trait that delights one person could annoy another intensely.
Tim generally tend to think positively about himself, as he isn't usually the most introspective; as a rule, but he is generally happy. This is positive right? Of course it is, at least from Tim's perspective. But for some, Tim may be viewed as self-satisfied, even pompous or worse, arrogant. Tim might be all of these things of course, but it goes to show that the basic strengths of his can be negatives in the wrong company. Like every astrological sign, Tim has a few weak points and we'll examine them, but bear in mind, that, paradoxically can be strengths in the right scenario.
Tim's Negative Qualities
Tim can be hedonistic, argumentative, materialistic, self-centered and obstinate. He can also be headstrong, lustful, opinionated and possessive. His other qualities also include being stubborn, inflexible, old-fashioned, slow, brooding, non-committal and pedantic with a volcanic temper. And the more you research, the more you find.
Those qualities may have some wondering why anyone (other than a mother) would love Tim! When it comes to his qualities, others describe Tim is like different sides of the same coin. Unlike some people, most Tim's qualities become positive or negative depending on the situation he is in, rather than being an absolute good or bad.
Tim is materialistic, no doubt about it. Tim looks at the world through possessive glasses, he loves owning things, being able to buy them and sample them. Tim likes status symbols and enjoy the attention they can bring. Quite often he breaks even romantic ideas down to price, what the cost/benefit is and are they going to be the sole owner or beneficiary, or will they have to share them?
Looked at it like this: of course the basic materialistic urge seems bad, but flip it and see what else comes along. Tim's materialism is often rooted in a desire to be secure, they don't often buy or pursue things that don't have a use or need, because that would be wasteful, and waste can lead to insecurity. In other words,Tim is typically a responsible consumer, an automatic ethical shopper. He might want to possess the world, but he doesn't want to break it (Tim learns early in life that the bull can be destructive). Tim also loves luxury, but only because luxury signals comfort and ease and who doesn't like that?
Of course need is in the eye of the beholder too, so if you are one of the more spiritual person, you're probably shaking your head right now. Tim's materialism can still be a positive thing. In essence, we know the price of everything, but we also know its value too.
Negative Traits for Tim Include Stubbornness
Tim's stubbornness is next. He is immovable if he thinks they are right. Likewise, he is relentless in flogging an already dead horse. He is apt to rarely let go of an issue; he's also unlikely to concede and admit they're wrong until someone can absolutely prove, beyond any doubt, that two plus two equals four because they are certain it's five. Tim is prone to getting trapped in unproductive activity because he has convinced himself that it's certain to work.
For all you who have patiently put up with this for years, thank you. It is a immense pain to have to deal with Tim in a stubborn mood. Flip! Stubbornness works two ways. Sometimes (amazingly) Tim is right and everyone else has yet to see the light, but he gets them there in the end. After years of failing to succeed in an activity that everyone else has given up on, Tim suddenly breaks through and fulfills a life-ambition. And even if he doesn't, that inherent obstinacy shields him from the disappointment.
Other negative qualities include the Temper
The typical Tim is known for his temper and it's often rooted in a desire for peace and quiet. Which is good. But that means he tend to bottle up emotions and thoughts. And when they bottle, they really bottle; tiny things are stored away over years and grow to make one big sore. Finally, when someone makes a minor fuss they explode like Vesuvius, covering everyone in spleen.
Those on the receiving end will find this disproportionate, unreasonable and frightening. For Tim, it's debilitating and earth shattering, but they can't stop it, and their anger will last a long time. Speak your mind only when the storm has blown over, as once cool, he will be ready to listen and apologize.
Putting aside the temper issue and pretty much all other personality traits are interchangeable on the good/bad graph. In the right situation, Tim's negative can actually have a positive outcome. When one encounters Tim's negative traits, it can help to imagine how the trait would be useful and positive in another setting; many find that Tim's worst offense is a lack of self-awareness in the moment. Make he aware of his momentary lapse (which usually isn't difficult) and you'll see he shifts gears mentally, becoming instantly agreeable. He is really good at being agreeable.
