Because Lou Adler seems to be such a gentle, tolerant, accepting person (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he can startle people with some of his very pointed, bluntly honest statements. Even though he is sensitive and empathetic, he can also be quite tactless at times. His good will and good intentions, however, usually prevail. With Adler's free-flowing imagination (described earlier) and his great restlessness (discussed below), he is apt to be a wanderer, and perhaps somewhat of an escapist.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Lou Adler, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Lou Adler probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Adler can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Lou Adler has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Adler always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Lou Adler has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Lou has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Adler expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Lou's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Lou Adler enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Adler.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Adler.
Lou Adler has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
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 Lou Adler 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. Lou should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Adler, and he does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how he is going to live his life. Lou Adler craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. Lou Adler possesses inventive and creative genius.
He is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Lou Adler does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Adler's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Lou Adler and shape important decisions in his life, and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Lou has artistic talents and interests and appreciates art in many forms. Lou Adler could become an actor and he has good judgment of the real value of things. Adler has an affectionate nature with a cheerful disposition and strong feelings of love.
Lou Adler has a sense of good fellowship and comradeship and is very much at ease in contact with others. Adler works successfully with others in his community, groups or associations and may get some assistance from some very powerful and influential people.
