Reserved and secretive, Benton
doesn't always like to follow tradition. Original or even quite unconventional, he appears distant and unemotional when in truth he is a shy and nervous man. who only really opens up once he feels comfortable with his company and environment. He is eclectic and just like an iceberg, there is a lot more to his character than meets the eye. He could be cheerful, light-hearted, playful, charming and apparently carefree one moment; then a few minutes later become solemn and serious, thoughtful and much more profound than one had imagined him to be. There are days when he is fun-loving and outgoing, eager to please, enthusiastic and happy to indulge in life's pleasures; and others where he is introverted and asocial, seeking solitude in order to resource and relax, meditate or contemplate Benton
is a sensitive creature but he tends to hide behind a more or less wry smile and cutting, caustic attitude; which he considers less dangerous than revealing his tender and vulnerable true nature. He uses humour as a shield and as an outlet for his creativity, and this can make him very enigmatic - especially since he himself cultivates this mystery and is fascinated by the unknown and unusual aspects of existence. He is curious and prefers to listen to what others have to say, since he considers that they are more interesting than him. Benton
is endowed with a rational and scientific mind, but he nevertheless possesses strong intuitive abilities and if he would just take the time to listen to that small voice inside, he could be pleasantly surprised. As a child, Benton
could be quite a dichotomy. On the one hand, he is inquisitive and into everything, lively, mobile and possibly a little unsettled or changeable (especially if he was born on a 5th, 14th, 23rd, in May, or if his Life Path Number
is 5). The other side of his personality is often more prominent, and makes him inclined to reflection, internalization and isolation (especially if he was born on a 7th, 16th, 25th, in July, or if he has a Life Path Number
of 7). He therefore needs to be able to fully experience both of these aspects of his personality, which is possible through the practice of strategic, logical games (chess, computers) and sport. Parents, be attentive and encourage him to communicate, especially during adolescence; otherwise he could become withdrawn and cut himself off from the world.
