Boris Karloff's appearance and the way he comes across to others (as described on the previous page) are very congruent with his true nature (described below). He is very idealistic, and a great lover of space and freedom.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Boris Karloff, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Boris Karloff probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Karloff can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Boris Karloff has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Karloff always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Boris Karloff has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Boris has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Karloff expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Boris' insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Boris Karloff enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Karloff.
Karloff is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Boris Karloff is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Boris Karloff is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to his own detriment. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Boris Karloff, and he cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what he does. Otherwise Boris Karloff becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Boris.
He is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on his agenda. Boris Karloff confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Karloff to claim his own.
Boris Karloff has a sensitive physique, is impressionable and prone to external influences. Boris should guard against the tendency to escape through drugs, alcohol etc. His imagination is very vivid and Karloff is likely to dream of big things.
