Behind Bardem's rather lighthearted, witty and restless demeanor described in the previous chapter, lies a sensitive, poetic soul. Javier Bardem may cover up his sensitivity with light banter and cleverness - or he may use his verbal and communication skills to express his imagination, kindness and refined sensitivity.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Javier Bardem as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Bardem may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Javier Bardem usually keeps to himself.
Javier shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Javier has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Javier Bardem sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Bardem tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Javier has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Bardem will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Bardem tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Javier Bardem does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Javier Bardem has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Bardem more than it bothers him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Bardem. Javier Bardem 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. Javier Bardem may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Javier Bardem between his conscious attitudes and aspirations and his deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Javier may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with his subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in his body may well be a signal that Javier Bardem is denying or suppressing the messages from his subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Javier Bardem will learn to accept and express these two different sides of himself. Should he fail to do so, Bardem is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect his denied or repressed qualities and seem to make his life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
Maintaining relationships with friends and associates is very important to Javier Bardem and he keeps in touch with them through his shared interests. His friends are likely to be very supportive to Bardem in everything he does.
