His desire for harmonious relationships and surroundings is so strong that he avoids personal confrontation or any expression of intense, unpleasant emotions. Eugène Atget is an idealist who would like to paint the world in pastel colors, and live in peace and harmony with others at all times. He is able to see points of similarity and unity with people who are vastly different from him, and befriend many different types of people. He is a considerate and thoughtful friend, and has a real flair for making others feel accepted and appreciated. Inwardly, Eugène Atget is often torn with indecision and is much more at odds with himself than others would ever guess based on his flawless disposition.
He is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for his belongings give Eugène Atget a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to him. Antiques or things with sentimental value from Jean Eugène's past are especially dear to him.
Eugène Atget 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.
He needs love, affection, nurturing and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as Eugène Atget is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". Jean Eugène has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make him cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation. Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for Jean Eugène - one that can be enormously satisfying if he can achieve it, and a source of great sadness if he cannot.
Gregarious and fun loving, he is always out to have a good time. Eugène Atget tends to "play now, pay later" and is prone to overspend, overeat, drink too much, and in general overdo, and even more so when in the company of others. It is hard for Eugène Atget to say no, especially when Atget's emotions or appetites are involved. Generous to a fault, he is likely to be very free both with money and with affection.
There is another side to Eugène Atget as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Eugène Atget often feels that he must do something or be something other than what he is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. He is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though he may appear cool or distant, Atget actually cares very much about being included. Because he is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Eugène Atget to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises he may endure once he lets others really know him in an intimate, personal way. His reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Eugène Atget becomes very attached to the few people he considers "real friends". Atget can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if he views them as times to nourish himself and develop his own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
Emotionally excitable, Atget tends to act impulsively and make rash decisions without thinking of the consequences. Others may see Jean Eugène as an eccentric, somewhat selfish and unpredictable. Eugène Atget seems to attract sudden upsetting experiences.
Eugène Atget has a strong desire for genuine understanding with others and finds it easy to share his feelings with them. His feelings toward others are very loving and Jean Eugène is likely to have a lot in common with many of his friends.
Eugène Atget has a positive emotional outlook and cultivating spiritual relationships with others is important to him. He is likely to have a big circle of friends and acquaintances and he loves to give and receive social invitations.
His love feelings and desires are easily aroused but he may find it difficult to sustain his romantic interest in relationships after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". Eugène Atget enjoys a dynamic partner with a strong independent streak, and he does not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. Jean Eugène wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
Eugène Atget craves very intense, deep, emotional relationships, and would even prefer stormy, tumultuous relationships to ones that are smooth but lacking vitality and passion. Jean Eugène loves wholeheartedly and expects all-consuming, total devotion and attention from his partner. Casual, light relationships hold no appeal for Atget.
He is kindhearted and generous with both his money and his affections, and he is not happy if he has to budget or restrict himself in any way. Pettiness or stinginess is foreign to Jean Eugène's nature and Eugène Atget feels most comfortable in an elegant, beautiful atmosphere. Asceticism is not for Atget. Gracious and charitable, he enjoys sponsoring social events or cultural activities. Eugène Atget has an optimistic, friendly attitude towards others and tends to bring out the finer side of people. He is likely to fall in love with someone who is successful, noble and idealistic.
Jean Eugène's pleasure-loving nature and his emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing his affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Eugène Atget is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times he is far more contained as described here. Because he is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Atget is to being left out or unappreciated.
He is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy himself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. Eugène Atget rarely does something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in his early life, Jean Eugène is very cautious about becoming involved in close relationships and sharing his feelings. Though Atget craves love and affection, intimacy is difficult for him. He may become romantically involved with people who do not value him or treat him well. Eugène Atget needs to learn to love and value himself before he finds happiness in love.
Others are drawn to Atget because of his affable, social and appealing disposition, and he is likely to have many pleasant and friendly relationships. Eugène Atget also has strong artistic inclinations and may consider a creative field as a profession or hobby.
