Warm, loving and generous in his relationships, James Joyce inspires tremendous devotion and loyalty in his loved ones. This is good, since he would never settle for anything less! James 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 Joyce lavishes on those he cares about. James Joyce 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. James Joyce hates emotional games and dishonesty.
Joyce 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 James' life are particularly important to him, and his relationships with them powerfully influence his sense of security and happiness. James Joyce may be overly dependent and unsure of himself without a close partner.
James Joyce 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, Joyce actually cares very much about being included. Because he is so sensitive, it may seem easier for James Joyce 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 James Joyce becomes very attached to the few people he considers "real friends". Joyce 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.
He is open and unconventional in his attitude towards love relationships, romance, and sex. He enjoys socializing, bringing people together, and having many friends of both sexes. James Joyce values friendship very highly and is, in fact, more comfortable being a friend than a lover. James desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with his love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to him. The roles of "husband" and "wife" in the traditional sense do not appeal to Joyce, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. James Joyce appreciates relationships where his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
Joyce is very much aware of his personal appearance, attractiveness, and charm, and he can be rather narcissistic. On the other hand, James Joyce is concerned with getting along with others and he has a pleasing, agreeable manner that people find quite appealing. James uses tact or charm to get what he wants rather than intense effort or force. His desire for love and affection colors everything James Joyce does.
He is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy himself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. James Joyce rarely does something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in his early life, James is very cautious about becoming involved in close relationships and sharing his feelings. Though Joyce 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. James Joyce needs to learn to love and value himself before he will find happiness in love.
James Joyce has a very romantic, idealistic vision of love and may be disillusioned to discover that no real, flesh and blood human being ever quite lives up to his dream image of the "perfect love". Though James frequently fantasizes about love-relationships and romance he may avoid becoming intimately involved with anyone or making definite commitments. Joyce can be evasive and dishonest with himself and others, when it comes to love. Some of his love yearnings may be expressed through art, music, or an involvement with mysticism.
His erotic nature is strong and James Joyce is likely to have a lot of romantic relationships. Very unconventional, he may have many unorthodox contacts. James has much zest for life, likes his freedom and finds it difficult to settle down.
