His pleasant manner and desire to relate harmoniously with others (as discussed in chapter 2), combined with his idealism, receptivity, and impressionability (as discussed below), make André Breton very self-sacrificing and willing to go the extra mile for someone else's sake. André Breton has to be wary of his tendency to lack discrimination in his charitable endeavors. He should also avoid trying to help those who are incorrigible. Moreover, he should not be afraid of confrontation. He is inclined to hide his thoughts and feelings, make excuses and even lie, often just to avoid a person or an issue. André Breton should strive to be honest in his communications, which will also help him to be honest with himself. If he channels his energies well, Breton can be a asset to others - be it on a professional level as a counselor, teacher, or consultant or on a personal day-to-day level.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to André Breton as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Breton may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. André Breton usually keeps to himself.
André shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. André has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. André Breton sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Breton tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. André has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Breton will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Breton tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. André Breton does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. André Breton has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Breton more than it bothers him.
André Breton has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. André enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. André Breton has a strong sense of pride.
Breton occasionally gamble, splurge, or overextend himself in ways that may be quite at odds with his usual way of doing things. Exaggerating his accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up his own self-esteem can be a problem. However, André Breton also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable him to recover from the negative consequences of his excesses, and to learn from them.
Breton seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. André Breton tends to withdraw and his outlook in general could be a bit too negative. André Breton should beware of letting his emotional tension react to his physical well-being.
Breton has a strong will and great determination and is willing to work hard to reach his goals. André Breton often takes on more than his share and labors untiringly, sparing himself no pain in his work. André should guard against over-exerting himself physically.
