Although John Leslie has very strong feelings and often reacts to situations passionately (as described on the previous page), he is basically very tender and softhearted. There are at least two sides to Leslie: a rather jealous and guarded side, and a much more lenient, generous and forgiving side (discussed below).
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to John Leslie 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 Leslie may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. John Leslie usually keeps to himself.
John 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. John has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. John Leslie 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, Leslie 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. John 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. Leslie will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Leslie tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. John Leslie 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. John Leslie 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 Leslie more than it bothers him.
The urge to learn and communicate is essential to John Leslie, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Leslie is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, John enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
John Leslie tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. John Leslie has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
John Leslie has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. John likes to be in control of himself.
Leslie is very thorough and takes his time thinking things through. He enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. John Leslie also could find traveling very rewarding.
John Leslie loves to entertain and likes to cultivate social contacts. He enjoys forming close personal relationships with others and most of them should be harmonious. John prefers teamwork rather than separate efforts to realize his goals.
