John Casablancas responds very strongly to the emotional tone and atmosphere around him, and can be dominated by his fluctuating and unpredictable moods. Casablancas often appears irrational to others because he cannot always explain the reason or source of his feelings. Anyone who lives with John Casablancas must accept his ups and downs and appreciate John's need for times of withdrawal.
John Casablancas is also very sympathetic and understands the unspoken feelings and needs of others. John Casablancas takes slights and rebuffs very personally and though he may forgive a transgression by a friend or loved one, he never forgets it.
Casablancas works well with the public and has an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to John, and he may invest more of his emotional energy into his career or public life than in his private life. He is likely to be engaged in providing and caring for others in a professional capacity.
He needs love, affection, nurturing and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as John Casablancas is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". John has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make him cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation. Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for John - one that can be enormously satisfying if he can achieve it, and a source of great sadness if he cannot.
John Casablancas tends to be touchy, defensive and rather territorial, and if he perceives a threat to his family or home or personal safety, he can be quite aggressive. Sometimes John feels out of sorts and hostile for no apparent reason, and this is usually due to unexpressed, unresolved anger from the past. John Casablancas also has a desire to lead, to compete, or to be a free agent - and he is not entirely conscious of this desire. It is good for Casablancas to have benign outlets and ways to let off steam on a regular basis, such as demanding physical work or athletics. Otherwise John Casablancas may be rather hard to live with, even abusive in his relationships.
Although John Casablancas was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, he also has a diametrically opposed tendency - namely the urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow John's fiery reactions somewhat, or he may seesaw between the two. His softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
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. John 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. John Casablancas is very sensitive to music and can use it to achieve emotional balance and harmony.
He is warm and affectionate in his relationships with others and has the ability to see the others' point of view, which is greatly appreciated by those around him. John Casablancas is emotionally well balanced and also has a well developed intellectual grasp.
John Casablancas has a very attractive personality and loves to socialize. Because of this he is very popular, especially with the opposite sex. John Casablancas also has a sense of beauty and may be interested in some kind of artistic work or hobby.
He is inclined to be somewhat gloomy, is easily offended, and he tries to suppress the jealousy he may feel. John Casablancas may have been brought up to sacrifice and forego a lot of things, making him a bit hard and unyielding in later life.
He is definitely not one to wear his heart on his sleeve. John Casablancas cares very much about others' opinions and craves love and appreciation as much as anyone - however one would never know it from Casablancas' reserved and seemingly detached demeanor. Casual, superficial relationships do not interest John at all. He is cautious and serious about love and really desires deep, genuine, lasting relationships. John Casablancas is old-fashioned about courtship and love relationships, and will remain faithful to his loved one in good times and in bad.
John Casablancas may be attracted to older persons who are emotionally mature and reliable and can provide the security John desires.
A warm, loving and comfortable home is very important to John Casablancas and he invests a lot of his energy into beautifying, decorating and creating a lovely home. Also, John shares his affection with the people in his family very generously and having close family ties is a major priority for him. Being at home makes Casablancas happy.
John Casablancas tends to deprive himself of pleasure, friendship and love, either because he feels he does not deserve it or he thinks it is wrong to enjoy life too much. Casablancas may have been indoctrinated with a duty-and-work-before-all-else attitude early on. He may also think of himself as unattractive or unlovable, and thus close his heart to opportunities to share love and companionship, never quite believing that others actually like him. John Casablancas is apt to prefer solitude to being in uncomfortable relationships or social situations, and his shyness may be intense - especially when young. Learning to truly love and accept himself - including whatever flaws or imperfections John believes he has - is vital for him. This process of self-appreciation and self-love will reap rewards, especially in later life.
He is prone to getting involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel John Casablancas to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Casablancas may be tempted to use his own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if his intentions are basically good, John Casablancas will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unsavory aspects of his character (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep surfacing. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
Love relationships are likely to be on his mind a lot and John Casablancas seems to live only for love. His power of attraction is unusually strong and Casablancas will probably have very deep relationships. His relationships could be fated or he may fall in love with someone of social standing.
