In addition to Benedetto's strong personal loyalties and the devotion he feels for his nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Benedetto Croce has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Benedetto Croce has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Croce should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. His good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Benedetto Croce a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Benedetto needs to avoid becoming bitter and resentful about life, and instead, to allow his great compassion and sensitivity to blossom and shine, rather than be dimmed by a few mistakes.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Benedetto Croce 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 Croce may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Benedetto Croce usually keeps to himself.
Benedetto 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. Benedetto has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Benedetto Croce 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, Croce 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. Benedetto 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. Croce will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Croce tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Benedetto Croce 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. Benedetto Croce 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 Croce more than it bothers him.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Croce.
Benedetto Croce has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Benedetto Croce tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Benedetto Croce has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Benedetto Croce is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Benedetto does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Croce, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Benedetto Croce has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance he has to overcome. Whatever he does, he knows what he wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
