Behind Lieberman's open, enthusiastic, friendly demeanor (described in the previous chapter), he has a rather gentle, receding nature. He is much more sensitive and vulnerable than his outgoing appearance would suggest.
Also because of his outgoing, enthusiastic approach to life is fueled by high idealism and a vivid imagination, Joe Lieberman easily becomes enamored of a romantic or idealistic goal or vision without investing sufficient energy into analyzing, planning, or working to realize his dreams. Too often Lieberman waits for the blessings of fortune to provide him with the resources needed rather than applying himself to the work that needs to be done. Properly handled, Joe's enthusiasm and vision can be an inspiration for others and an endless source of creative ideas that propel Joe Lieberman to very interesting, creative endeavors.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable, and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Joe Lieberman 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 Lieberman may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Joe Lieberman usually keeps to himself.
Joe has great sensitivity and empathy with others, and he 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. Joe has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels others' pain as if it were his own. Joe Lieberman 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, Lieberman 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. Joe has little sense of boundaries, of limits, 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. Lieberman will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than directly confronting them, and Lieberman tends to lack the positive fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant, and somewhat passive. Joe Lieberman does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he has a great sensitivity, inspiration, and limitless imagination. Joe Lieberman responds very strongly to beauty and to love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than taking 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 Lieberman more than it bothers him.
The urge to learn and to communicate is essential to Joe Lieberman, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Lieberman is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Joe enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
He is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Joe Lieberman does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Lieberman's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Joe Lieberman and shape important decisions in his life, and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
