His sensible, practical, down-to-earth appearance (described in the previous chapter), combined with his interest in relationships and other people (described below), make Enrico Fermi a very pleasant and likeable person. Others come to Enrico Fermi for practical advice and to share their concerns and feelings.
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. Enrico Fermi instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and he is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Enrico does all he can to avoid conflict and discord. His spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and he often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Fermi since he can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make his own decisions. Fermi will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. He prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on his own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Enrico Fermi, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Enrico Fermi invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Enrico Fermi seeks a partner who is his equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. He makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and he enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Fermi perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Enrico Fermi appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in his personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to him. If Enrico Fermi fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Enrico. He believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Enrico Fermi also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Fermi dresses and furnishes his home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to him.
His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Enrico Fermi's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Fermi can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Enrico has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Enrico Fermi tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, he never gives up on his hopes for the future. Fermi tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Fermi's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Enrico Fermi 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.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Enrico Fermi has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Enrico Fermi tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Enrico Fermi also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Enrico 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. Enrico Fermi is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Fermi 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.
Fermi seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Enrico Fermi tends to withdraw and his outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Enrico Fermi should beware of letting his emotional tension react to his physical well-being.
