He is not content with superficial appearances and is always probing beneath the surface of things for hidden motives. Leif Garrett has a great deal of emotional depth.

Leif Garrett may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of his immediate circle.
He is a sensitive soul and a dreamer who is very much attuned to the world of imagination and fantasy. Leif Garrett often retreats into his own inner world in order to escape the harshness of everyday living in the "real world".

Leif's pleasure-loving nature and his emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing his affection, and by a fear of heartache.

He is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy himself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. Leif Garrett rarely does something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious.

He needs a lot of emotional and romantic stimulation, and may not be very interested in having just one mate or love partner. Variety, excitement, spontaneity, and freedom are quite important to Leif, and "settling down" is not that appealing. Leif Garrett tends to surround himself with unusual, creative, unconventional people that keep his life lively. Music or dancing or both play an important part in Garrett's life.
Leif Garrett tends to be somewhat hypocritical and artificial and may even fool himself at times. His desires are likely to be a bit unrealistic and he may tries to hide his deception from others as well as from himself.
