In addition to Gabe's rather conservative and self-controlled demeanor (mentioned in the previous chapter), he has a highly developed sense of aesthetics, poise and gracefulness, as described below. Gabe has refined taste and manners, but he may find it difficult to really let his hair down or deviate from certain internal constraints. Gabe Saporta has a knack for keeping things simple yet beautiful.
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. Gabe Saporta 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, Gabe 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 Saporta since he can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make his own decisions. Saporta 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 Gabe Saporta, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Gabe Saporta invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Gabe Saporta 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. Saporta perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Gabe Saporta 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 Gabe Saporta fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Gabe. He believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Gabe Saporta also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Saporta 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 career, reputation and public image are very important to Saporta. Gabe Saporta has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Gabe Saporta may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Gabe Saporta takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Gabe, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Gabe Saporta may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
Inwardly he is zealous and fanatical, though he may hide his personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of his feelings. He is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Gabe is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Gabe Saporta tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and he often seeks to emulate them. Gabe has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
