Although Ford may seem quite poised, even-tempered, balanced and harmonious (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is actually rather moody and emotional. Inside, he is much more subjective and biased in his attitudes than his fair-minded, reasonable demeanor may imply.
Harrison has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Ford to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Ford tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Harrison likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Harrison Ford has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Harrison Ford than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Harrison Ford takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Harrison Ford feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Harrison Ford needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Harrison Ford becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Harrison Ford functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Ford often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Harrison Ford also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Ford's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Ford. Harrison Ford has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Harrison Ford may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
The above description of Harrison Ford is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Harrison Ford tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
Ford is capable of extraordinary physical or mental efforts to gain success and achieve something that will bring him recognition and respect. Harrison Ford has a strong need for authority and power over others and is likely to perform better in a leading position.
He is inclined to feel uncomfortable or restrained in some way in the presence of others and prefer to be alone. Harrison Ford is modest and shy in his approach to others and tends to accept more responsibility than he really needs to.
