Warm, loving and generous in his relationships, Gordon Parks inspires tremendous devotion and loyalty in his loved ones. This is good, since he would never settle for anything less! Gordon wants to be adored and worshipped like the royalty he feels he is, and it is difficult for anyone to resist the warmth and attention Parks lavishes on those he cares about. Gordon Parks has a great deal of pride and needs to be recognized and appreciated. The way to really hurt his feelings is to ignore him. He is genuine, sincere, and has a strong sense of personal integrity. Gordon Parks hates emotional games and dishonesty.
Parks depends a great deal upon other people for emotional support and he has a large "family" of friends that care about him and treat him as kin. The women in Gordon's life are particularly important to him, and his relationships with them powerfully influence his sense of security and happiness. Gordon Parks may be overly dependent and unsure of himself without a close partner.
He is temperamental and impatient and can be very difficult to live with. Gordon Parks tends to respond with a temper tantrum (overt or subtle) if his desires are frustrated. Gordon Parks becomes very irritable and bad-tempered if he lacks vigorous physical activity or other outlets for his aggressive, feisty spirit.
Although Parks gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), he also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure, which enable Gordon Parks to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies. This side of his is described below.
Gordon Parks 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, Parks actually cares very much about being included. Because he is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Gordon Parks 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 Gordon Parks becomes very attached to the few people he considers "real friends". Parks 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.
In addition to Gordon's rather introverted, serious or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Gordon Parks craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Parks rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance each other out. His freer and unpredictable side will now be described.
Gordon Parks tends to have strange quirks, idiosyncrasies, or domestic habits, and he may feel that he does not fit in with "normal" people. These could be endearing eccentricities, or truly outlandish tastes and behavior. Establishing a steady routine and rhythm in his life and relationships would be very beneficial but may not be easily achieved. Ideally Gordon Parks can create a unique lifestyle that affords him a lot of personal space, freedom, and flexibility to follow his own somewhat erratic rhythms - while at the same time providing some order and consistency.

Gordon Parks craves change and excitement whether he realizes it consciously or not.
Gordon has very deep feelings and profound attachments to people he cares about.

He is definitely not one to wear his heart on his sleeve. Gordon Parks cares very much about others' opinions and craves love and appreciation as much as anyone - however one would never know it from Parks' reserved and seemingly detached demeanor.
