He is not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from his own and others' emotions. It is almost as if he could turn his feelings on and off at will; Marshall should be careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for he could easily become too impersonal. Family relationships and attachments are not as important to him as they are to most people and Mathers often considers his friends closer to him than his blood relatives. Certainly, Mathers' sympathy and concern extends much beyond his immediate family. In his personal relationships, Eminem insists upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as he chooses. Marshall does not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
Eminem feels comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and he has little taste for convention and tradition.
He is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for his belongings give Eminem a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to him. Antiques or things with sentimental value from Marshall's past are especially dear to him.
Eminem may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of his immediate circle.
Eminem has an inner poise and balance that enables him to act in a cool, efficient manner during emotional traumas and stress. He keeps perspective and objectivity about highly charged emotional issues - sometimes to the chagrin of others who might wish that Mathers would react more intensely. Marshall is quietly supportive and faithful to his friends and loved ones.
In addition to Marshall's rather introverted, serious, or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Eminem craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Mathers rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance one another. His more free 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 ruts. Eminem craves emotional stimulation, excitement, surprises, and anything new. Mathers also loves to feel free and unfettered.
His emotional tension could be quite strong and the pressure may seem unbearable at times. He may have a sudden desire to liberate himself from the stress and may release his tension towards women. Eminem could also feel lonely and depressed at times.
He is quietly devoted and faithful to his loved ones, and often becomes a kind of servant to his love partner. Eminem is more comfortable showing love for someone by doing something for them, making something for them, or simply being there for them - rather than telling them so in a romantic, soul-stirring sort of way. He is timid about expressing too much sentiment or emotion. Eminem also underestimates his attractiveness and lovability and doubts his own worthiness to receive love and appreciation.
Marshall is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show Mathers places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Also, Eminem feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with his own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of his.
