Alan does not appear to be an intensely emotional or sentimental person, and he is often unaware of his own or other people's deeper feelings and emotional needs. Tears and tantrums bewilder him and make him very uncomfortable. Alan Ladd would rather settle differences by talking things out reasonably and rationally, but he tends to ignore or poke fun at any attempt to probe his own or others' inner depths.
Alan Ladd avoids heavy, demanding emotional relationships and is wary of making personal commitments.
He needs ample mental stimulation and feels close to people with whom he can share thoughts and intellectual interests. Conversation is very important to Ladd. The strong, silent partner is not for him.
Ladd gets a lot of emotional fulfillment through his involvement in groups, clubs, organizations, community activities, or a network of close friends who support and care for him. Alan Ladd makes friends his family, and he feels a close kinship with people who share some ideals or beliefs that he holds dear. Alan Ladd needs close relationships with people outside of his physical family.
Alan Ladd tends to be touchy, defensive and rather territorial, and if he perceives a threat to his family or home or personal safety, he can be quite aggressive. Sometimes Alan feels out of sorts and hostile for no apparent reason, and this is usually due to unexpressed, unresolved anger from the past. Alan Ladd also has a desire to lead, to compete, or to be a free agent, that he is not entirely conscious of. It is good for Ladd to have benign outlets and ways to let off steam on a regular basis, such as demanding physical work or athletics. Otherwise Alan Ladd may be rather hard to live with, even abusive in his relationships.
Although Alan Ladd was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, he also has a diametrically opposed tendency - namely the urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow Alan's fiery reactions somewhat, or he may seesaw between the two. His softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
He is a dreamer who is attracted to the inner, mystical side of life, and may have trouble distinguishing the real from the imagined or illusory. Alan does not enjoy confrontation and becomes very evasive when problems in his personal life or relationships arise, and escapes into his imagination in order to avoid dealing with them directly. He is also rather gullible and naive about people, especially if his sympathy has been aroused. Alan Ladd is very sensitive to music and can use it to achieve emotional balance and harmony.
Alan Ladd possesses a certain inner greatness and because of his inner qualities, he has the ability to influence others. People look to Ladd for guidance and advice, and his leadership is easily accepted by those with whom Alan Ladd comes in contact.
Alan Ladd possesses the gifts of tact, courtesy and consideration, and has a strong desire to please and understand his love partner. Because he values harmony so highly, Alan Ladd will compromise a great deal to avoid any discord or conflict in his relationships. Alan does not like to dwell on controversial or emotional subjects and often tries to "smooth things over" or "sweep them under the rug".
In love relationships, Alan Ladd wants an intellectual peer, an equal and a friend. He is attracted to people who have a certain finesse, delicacy and subtlety. Alan Ladd appreciates good manners and refinement and is not happy with coarseness or bluntness in a person.
Beautiful, elegant, and harmonious surroundings are very important to Alan Ladd, and he has an innate sense of style, design, and form. Socially, also, good form and politeness are important to Ladd and he instinctively avoids crudeness and dissonance.
He enjoys talking about love, relationships, art and the beautiful side of life. Alan Ladd appreciates artistic people.
Feelings of loneliness, extreme shyness and/or the fear of rejection plague Alan Ladd and may well inhibit him from expressing warmth and affection in an open way. Denying himself pleasure, comfort, and "nice things" due to feelings of unworthiness can also limit the joy Alan allows himself. Heartache and a loss of love in his life - perhaps while quite young - will serve to either close his heart to love or cause him to deeply cherish the friends and love he receives from others. The saying that "true love is hard to find" is certainly true for Alan Ladd, but he will value it tremendously when it does come into his life.
The feeling that "there is not enough for me" may cause him to be very frugal and stingy with money as well.
His nature is harmonious and Alan radiates happiness so that everyone around him will be in good spirits. His taste is likely to be elegant and he has a strong desire to surround himself with beauty. Alan Ladd may be interested in fashion, hair-styling or other beauty-related fields.
Alan Ladd seems to have an unusual power of attraction to other people and frequently may associate with others whether they are good for him or not. Very compulsive in love relationships, Ladd could have a kind of tragic love union.
