David Sarnoff is actually a more sensitive, vulnerable and compassionate person than his proud and somewhat vain manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest. Although he maintains a strong, confident facade, he is actually quite soft, understanding and caring.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to David Sarnoff 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 Sarnoff may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. David Sarnoff 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 Sarnoff 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, Sarnoff 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. Sarnoff will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Sarnoff tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. David Sarnoff does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. David Sarnoff has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
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. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Sarnoff more than it bothers him.
David Sarnoff invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. David feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which David Sarnoff can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
David is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. David Sarnoff is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Sarnoff may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though David often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. Sarnoff is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". David Sarnoff tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. David Sarnoff both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
Both sensitive and sensuous, David blends charm and energy. David Sarnoff has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. He may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to David, and his romantic relationships are passionate.
