Though Geldof may seem breezy, independent and freedom-loving (as mentioned in the previous chapter), actually he is not completely happy without a partner. He enjoys being on the move and exploring new territory - but he wants a traveling companion! Fulfilling relationships that also do not restrict him is Geldof's ideal.
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. Bob Geldof 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, Bob 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 Geldof can be too dependent on others' approval and opinions to make his own decisions. Geldof 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 Bob Geldof, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-to-one relationships.
Bob Geldof invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Bob Geldof 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 Geldof, one that requires time, attention, and creative effort. Bob Geldof 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 Bob Geldof fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Bob and he believes in moderation in all things, avoiding fanaticism and extremism of any sort.
Bob Geldof also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Geldof 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.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Geldof.
Bob Geldof 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.
Bob Geldof tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but he does not always listen as well. Bob Geldof has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Geldof's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Bob Geldof is able to proceed in his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Bob's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Bob Geldof aims high, dreams big dreams, and has a tremendous sense of what is possible for him to achieve. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility, and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be his faults. Generally, however, Geldof's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation, suits Bob Geldof well.
However he also has a heavier side which keeps Geldof's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Bob Geldof tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His doubting or "heavy" side is described below.
Bob Geldof has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He advances in life rather slowly, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, to be spontaneous and playful. Bob likes to be in control of himself.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Bob Geldof that rebels against rules and restrictions and answering to outside authority. Geldof can feel torn between conforming or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
Impulsive, restless, and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Bob Geldof is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom, and discovery. Geldof has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from the mainstream of society. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
He is very receptive and sensitive but has a tendency to over-idealize, making his approach to love relationships, romance or marriage somewhat unrealistic. Bob Geldof also tends to be a bit absent-minded and naive, leaving himself open for being taken, swindled or lied to.
Geldof seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Bob Geldof tends to withdraw and his outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Bob Geldof should beware of letting his emotional tension react to his physical well-being.
