Louis B. Mayer
Although Mayer may seem quite poised, even-tempered, balanced and harmonious (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is actually rather moody and emotional. Inside, he is much more subjective and biased in his attitudes than his fair-minded, reasonable demeanor may imply.
Louis has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Mayer to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Mayer tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Louis likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves.

Mayer than any sort of honor the world can bestow.

Mayer often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Louis B. Mayer also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
