Serious and responsible, he tries to carry the world on his shoulders and rarely lets others know that he needs help and support. Joel Coen denies or ignores his own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept him if he appears "weak". He is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and tells himself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Joel Coen needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with his "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, he may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. His feelings and loyalties run deep, but he often does not let people know how much he cares. Joel Coen also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy himself, and play.
His own feelings and emotions are something of an enigma to Joel, and it is often difficult for him to share what he is feeling with others.
Joel Coen frequently withdraws from the world and needs a healing, peaceful environment in order to blossom and come out of his own world.
Coen identifies with the oppressed, disenfranchised or underdog in any situation and he wants to help them or care for them in some way.
His childhood and early home life was in many ways unsettling, and the nurturing Coen received was erratic and unreliable at best. Joel Coen has had to move a lot, or Coen's family may have been blatantly different from other people so that Joel was often deemed an outsider or a "weirdo". As an adult, Joel Coen may long for "normalcy" while at the same time he balks at any routine, structure, formality or restrictions.
Joel Coen often becomes nervous or shaky when emotionally stressed. Developing a regular rhythm and a steady, consistent (if not traditional) way of life would be beneficial to Coen, both emotionally and physically.
He is a dreamer who is attracted to the inner, mystical side of life, and may have trouble distinguishing the real from the imagined or illusory. Joel does not enjoy confrontation and becomes very evasive when problems in his personal life or relationships arise, and escapes into his imagination in order to avoid dealing with them directly. He is also rather gullible and naive about people, especially if his sympathy has been aroused. Joel Coen is very sensitive to music and can use it to achieve emotional balance and harmony.
In love relationships, Joel Coen desires a deep, intense and passionate union with his beloved and forms very strong emotional bonds and attachments. Joel "marries" the person he loves at a very deep emotional level, and is often extremely possessive and jealous of anyone who may pose a threat to that union. Coen can be very demanding of his love partner. Joel Coen tends to be somewhat suspicious of his partner's relationships, even if they are merely platonic. If he is ever betrayed, Joel Coen is capable of hating with as much force and intensity as he once loved. He is attracted to people who have an aura of mystery about them.
Joel is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling and people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show him places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Moreover, Joel Coen feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only for his own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of his.
Intimacy does not come easily to Joel Coen and he may appear cold or unfeeling to others due to his emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in his early life, Coen does not trust others very easily and it takes a long time to break down all of his barriers and defenses. He may feel that he has few friends or people that really care about him. Joel Coen needs to learn to value and love himself more and to express his appreciation for others more openly.
Others may get the impression that Joel Coen considers personal relationships not very important, as he may pretend to have feelings for someone when he really does not. Joel Coen would make a very good actor playing the part of a lover.
