Much of what is stated in the previous chapter is similar to what is stated in this chapter. His need to relate openly and honestly to others is very strong. Arthur Miller has to be wary of the tendency to be so strongly influenced by the ideas and opinions of others that he is not sure what his opinion is.
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. Arthur Miller instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and he is always fair and willing to meet the other person half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and with considerable social awareness, Arthur does all he can to avoid conflict and discord. He expresses a spirit of cooperation and compromise and often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve by a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with others and pleasing them may be too much of importance to him, for Miller can be too dependent on others' approval and opinions to make his own decisions. Miller will rarely act without getting the counsel and feedback of other people. He prefers sharing and doing things together rather than on his own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Arthur Miller, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-to-one relationships.
Arthur Miller invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Arthur Miller seeks a partner who is his equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. He makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and he enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Relationships are like an art to Miller, one that requires time, attention, and creative effort. Arthur Miller appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or dull or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in his personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to him. If Arthur Miller fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Arthur and he believes in moderation in all things, avoiding fanaticism and extremism of any sort.
Arthur Miller also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Miller dresses, furnishes and arranges his home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Either working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator - or in an artistic field such as design or photography, would be fulfilling to him.
Arthur Miller has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Miller can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Arthur Miller feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
He prefers more serious kinds of conversation with his friends and neighbors rather than small talk. Because his communication is clear and concise, Arthur Miller can impress others by taking control of negotiations or business dealings.
Arthur Miller has a harmonious and graceful manner along with an appreciation of beautiful, perhaps even artistically furnished surroundings. Arthur may be quite attractive and he is likely to make a favorable impression on everyone.
Arthur Miller has a great desire for freedom and independence and is subject to strong emotional tensions. He is very creative and forges ahead tirelessly. But Miller tends to make the highest demands on his physical energy and is prone to over-stimulate his nerves.
Arthur Miller tends to impose his will upon others in a rather ruthless way, but on the other hand he may also be imposed upon by others. Arthur feels a constant need to fight for leadership and has a great desire to become a public figure.
