Though Elijah Wood seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is also quite idealistic, as described below. He may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Elijah Wood has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Elijah Wood cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Wood can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Elijah has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Elijah Wood probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Elijah Wood seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Elijah makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Elijah Wood thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Elijah Wood stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Elijah Wood was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Elijah has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Wood. Elijah Wood has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Elijah Wood may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Elijah has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win Wood many allies and successes in life.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Wood's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Elijah Wood tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Realistic and practical, Elijah Wood sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Wood possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Elijah Wood also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Wood often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
Wood always seems to find the right words to verbalize his feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Elijah Wood also has a keen sense of beauty and he probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Elijah blends charm and energy. Elijah Wood 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 Elijah, and his romantic relationships are passionate.
