Serious and responsible, he tries to carry the world on his shoulders and rarely lets others know that he needs help and support. Chris Slade denies or ignores his own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept him if he appears "weak". He is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and tells himself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Chris Slade needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with his "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, he may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. His feelings and loyalties run deep, but he often does not let people know how much he cares. Chris Slade also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy himself, and play.
Chris Slade has a soft exterior and tends to relate very personally and sympathetically to other people. However, Chris sometimes lets his emotions overpower his reasoning and logic, and consequently he is sometimes biased in his opinions. Chris Slade is impressionable and rather gentle, or at least that is the way he appears. His feelings are on the surface and Chris cannot hide his emotions.
Generally sunny and optimistic, Chris Slade has a cheering effect on those around him. Chris likes and needs people, and others genuinely like him too. He enjoys a wide circle of friends who are like family to him. Entertaining, partying, social activities, and fellowship are essential ingredients for his emotional well-being.
There is another side to Chris Slade as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Slade can be hard to get close to. Subconsciously he may feel that too much closeness in his relationships will interfere with doing what he needs to do and being his own person, so Chris Slade puts up subtle walls and distance himself when someone begins to want more of him than he can comfortably give. However, Slade may cut off sources of emotional nourishment and support that way, and end up feeling alone and lonely. Chris Slade might even develop digestive problems. Overcoming his fears of intimacy, while at the same time affirming and acting on his autonomous needs, is the challenge here.
He is a dreamer who is attracted to the inner, mystical side of life, and may have trouble distinguishing the real from the imagined or illusory. Chris does not enjoy confrontation and becomes very evasive when problems in his personal life or relationships arise, and escapes into his imagination in order to avoid dealing with them directly. He is also rather gullible and naive about people, especially if his sympathy has been aroused. Chris Slade is very sensitive to music and can use it to achieve emotional balance and harmony.
In love relationships, Chris Slade seeks companionship and friendship with someone who is fun loving, playful and open to adventure and new experiences. He enjoys traveling together, meeting new people and making new friends. Honeymooning in a distant location appeals to Chris, and he is also attracted to foreigners or people with diametrically different backgrounds than his own. Chris Slade supports his partner in taking risks and making positive changes, rather than preserving the status quo. He also very much wants a partner who will encourage his own aspirations and dreams. It is very important to Chris that he have a spiritual or intellectual rapport with his love partner, perhaps more important than the emotional/physical aspect. Chris Slade is not especially sentimental and his love partner may feel that he is too casual and not serious or romantic enough.
Slade is a very sociable, congenial person and he wilts very quickly without relationships with good friends and people to share good times with. Chris Slade thoroughly enjoys working with others on group projects or community activities. He is quite happy when he is a part of a club, support group, or team of some sort.
