Although he is quite tolerant, giving and forgiving (as mentioned in the previous chapter), John Heinz has a definite sense of fairness, balance and correct proportions, which prevent John from being completely happy in an exclusively benevolent role. John Heinz really wants equal and reciprocal relationships - not ones that involve being someone else's servant or caregiver. However, John Heinz needs to learn how to assert what he wants and needs, for he tends to "go with the flow" or simply wait for his needs to be met. Consequently, he may feel that he is never able to achieve equality in relationships and ends up being taken advantage of. Moreover, John should avoid the tendency to be evasive, indirect, and afraid to confront unpleasant issues. The honest and open relationships Heinz seeks cannot be achieved if he is hiding something!
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. John Heinz instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and he is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, John does all he can to avoid conflict and discord. His spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and he often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Heinz since he can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make his own decisions. Heinz will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. He prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on his own. Being alone feels very unnatural to John Heinz, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
John Heinz invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. John Heinz seeks a partner who is his equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one.

John Heinz appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in his personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to him. If John Heinz fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to John. He believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
John Heinz also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Heinz dresses and furnishes his home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to him.
John Heinz invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. John feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to promote mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which John Heinz can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
