David Niven has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Niven should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. His good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make David Niven a victim of others' greed. If this happens, David 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 David Niven 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 Niven may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. David Niven usually keeps to himself.
David 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. David has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. David Niven 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, Niven 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. David 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. Niven will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Niven tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. David Niven does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.

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.

His career, reputation and public image are very important to Niven. David Niven has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts.
