He is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others his feelings. Though he may love and care for someone a great deal, Dalai Lama rarely expresses his feelings openly and freely. Very often The Dalai Lama's love for someone is expressed by his wish to help him, do something tangible to benefit him or serve him in some way.
It is also difficult for him to receive warmth, affection or appreciation, for he often feels that he does not really deserve it or that "they do not really mean it". The Dalai Lama may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than he feels.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes Tenzin Gyatso difficult to live with. Dalai Lama needs to learn to be gentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with himself.
Dalai Lama often makes decisions solely for emotional or personal reasons, because something "feels right" or because he has always done it a certain way and he is uncomfortable changing it. Even when The Dalai Lama thinks he is being rational, his prejudices, intuitions, and feelings influence his thoughts a great deal. Tenzin Gyatso is comfortable talking about feelings and personal subjects, and sharing confidences, which enables others to express their own inner feelings with him as well. Dalai Lama has good psychological insight into others.
Generally sunny and optimistic, Dalai Lama has a cheering effect on those around him. Tenzin Gyatso 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 Dalai Lama as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Some rather acute fears of being excluded, rejected, left out in the cold or separated from loved ones can make Dalai Lama either extremely cautious about getting close to people or clingy toward whoever gives him any warmth or security. Dalai Lama tends to withhold and clamp down on many of his feelings and craves nurturing and security, perhaps feeling that they are unacceptable or will never be satisfied. Learning to be open and trust others to nurture him is important to him. His earliest years, especially The Dalai Lama's relationships with his mother, will determine whether Dalai Lama will overcome his fears or retreat behind a mask of self-sufficiency and indifference.
In addition to Tenzin Gyatso's rather introverted, serious or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Dalai Lama craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make The Dalai Lama rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance each other out. His freer and unpredictable side will now be described.
He is uninhibited and spontaneous and will often do something unexpected or humorous in order to loosen people up and get them out of their rut. Dalai Lama craves emotional stimulation, excitement, surprises and anything new. The Dalai Lama also loves to feel free and unfettered.
He is a sensitive soul and a dreamer who is very much attuned to the world of imagination and fantasy. Dalai Lama often retreats into his own inner world in order to escape the harshness of everyday living in the "real world". Gentle and often rather passive as well, he will not fight or assert himself, even when he needs to. Dalai Lama is very sympathetic and somewhat naive emotionally and must guard against being taken advantage of.
Warmhearted and generous in love relationships, Dalai Lama cannot tolerate pettiness or stinginess in his partner. Tenzin Gyatso wants a hero to idolize and adore, someone to wholeheartedly admire and be proud of. Dalai Lama is tremendously loyal and devoted once he gives his heart to someone.
Dalai Lama craves love, appreciation and attention from others and hates to be ignored. He is rather susceptible to flattery and loves to feel special. The Dalai Lama enjoys a touch of drama and color in his love relationships and he is impressed by grand romantic gestures or extravagant expressions of generosity.
Beautiful, elegant, and harmonious surroundings are very important to Dalai Lama, and he has an innate sense of style, design, and form. Socially, also, good form and politeness are important to The Dalai Lama and he instinctively avoids crudeness and dissonance.
He enjoys talking about love, relationships, art and the beautiful side of life. Dalai Lama appreciates artistic people.
Dalai Lama has a need for calm and peaceful surrounding, but his somewhat passionate nature could bring on arguments and fights about love matters. Dalai Lama loves his work and may connect his profession with a hobby in some way.
