His pleasant manner and desire to relate harmoniously with others (as discussed in chapter 2), combined with his idealism, receptivity, and impressionability (as discussed below), make John Garfield very self-sacrificing and willing to go the extra mile for someone else's sake. John Garfield has to be wary of his tendency to lack discrimination in his charitable endeavors. He should also avoid trying to help those who are incorrigible. Moreover, he should not be afraid of confrontation. He is inclined to hide his thoughts and feelings, make excuses and even lie, often just to avoid a person or an issue. John Garfield should strive to be honest in his communications, which will also help him to be honest with himself. If he channels his energies well, Garfield can be a asset to others - be it on a professional level as a counselor, teacher, or consultant or on a personal day-to-day level.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to John Garfield 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 Garfield may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. John Garfield 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 Garfield 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, Garfield 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. Garfield will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Garfield tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. John Garfield 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 Garfield 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 Garfield more than it bothers him.
His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of John Garfield's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Garfield can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to him at just the right time. Because John Garfield is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate successes in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. John should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
