Although he is dramatic and likes to show off or stand out in some way (as described on the previous page), there is another side to Art Garfunkel that would gladly hole up in a deep, dark, quiet place. This other, more private and secretive side is described below.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Art Garfunkel is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Art Garfunkel usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Art Garfunkel also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Art Garfunkel commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Art merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Garfunkel has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Art will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Art does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Garfunkel can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Garfunkel can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Art Garfunkel emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Art Garfunkel loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Art never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Art Garfunkel tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Art Garfunkel prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Garfunkel invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and his inner life.
Art Garfunkel tends to struggle with how to assert his will and he gets what he wants in life in a way that he can feel good about. Garfunkel may be unsure about when to use force and take decisive action, and he may occasionally become inappropriately aggressive or pushy. Art Garfunkel may also disapprove of his own anger, competitiveness, or aggressive impulses - and thus have difficulty accessing his personal power. Learning to accept and express his "masculine" or "yang" qualities in a positive manner is a challenge for Garfunkel.
Art Garfunkel has a pleasant and dreamy disposition with considerable romantic imagination. Art has a strong longing for love, but he does not see others very clearly and may experience many disappointments in his emotional relationships.
His courage to face life seems to be a bit on the low side and Art Garfunkel is prone to worry a lot. Fear of his own inadequacies could distort his perspective and deplete his strength to go on in the direction he has chosen.
