Although he is dramatic and likes to show off or stand out in some way (as described on the previous page), there is another side to Garry Marshall that would gladly hole up in a deep, dark, quiet place. This other, more private and secretive side is described below.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Garry Marshall is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Garry Marshall usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does.

Garry Marshall also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Garry Marshall commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Garry merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Marshall has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Garry will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Garry does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Marshall can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything.

He is torn in two different directions. Garry has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging.
