He is not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from his own emotions and those of others. It is almost as if he could turn his feelings on and off at will; Louis should be careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for he could easily become too impersonal. Family relationships and attachments are not as important to him as they are to most people and Leakey often considers his friends closer to him than his blood relatives. Certainly, Leakey's sympathy and concern extends much beyond his immediate family. In his personal relationships, Louis Leakey insists upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as he chooses. Louis does not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
Louis Leakey feels comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and he has little taste for convention and tradition.
Louis Leakey often makes decisions solely for emotional or personal reasons, because something "feels right" or because he has always done it a certain way and he is uncomfortable changing it. Even when Leakey thinks he is being rational, his prejudices, intuitions, and feelings influence his thoughts a great deal. Louis is comfortable talking about feelings and personal subjects, and sharing confidences, which enables others to express their own inner feelings with him as well. Louis Leakey has good psychological insight into others.
He is temperamental and impatient and can be very difficult to live with. Louis Leakey tends to respond with a temper tantrum (overt or subtle) if his desires are frustrated. Louis Leakey becomes very irritable and bad-tempered if he lacks vigorous physical activity or other outlets for his aggressive, feisty spirit.
Although Leakey gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), he also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure, which enable Louis Leakey to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies. This side of his is described below.
Serious and emotionally reserved, Louis Leakey was probably never an exuberant, playful child, and he rarely expresses himself in a spontaneous, childlike manner. He is cautious about letting others get close to him and sometimes withdraws from people altogether. At times, Louis Leakey feels lonely or isolated, even when he is with people. Learning to appreciate his own company and find satisfying solitary activities is essential to Louis' emotional well-being.
Although Louis Leakey 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 Louis' fiery reactions somewhat, or he may seesaw between the two. His softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
Highly sensitive and rather easily taken in, Louis Leakey needs to beware of deceiving himself and allowing others to take advantage of his impressionability or gentleness. Daydreaming, fantasizing, or other forms of imaginative, escapist behavior (such as watching television excessively or living his life through romance novels) could be something of an addiction for Leakey. Louis Leakey tends to confuse images with reality and needs to learn to be more circumspect and discriminating. Disappointments through women and in close relationships may occur if Leakey does not.
He is quietly devoted and faithful to his loved ones and often becomes subservient to his love partner. Louis Leakey is more comfortable showing his love by doing or making something for his loved one, or simply being there for her, rather than by making any romantic, soul-stirring declarations. He is timid about expressing too much sentiment or emotion. Louis Leakey also underestimates his attractiveness and lovability and doubts his own worthiness of love and appreciation.
Leakey is a very sociable, congenial person and he wilts very quickly without relationships with good friends and people to share good times with. Louis Leakey thoroughly enjoys working with others on group projects or community activities. He is quite happy when he is a part of a club, support group, or team of some sort.
Money is liable to be an issue in his life, not because he does not have it, but because Louis Leakey cannot or will not hold onto it. Louis Leakey has a freehanded, generous, open attitude and would prefer to spend and enjoy and partake in the pleasures of the moment than to save, discipline or budget himself. At Leakey's worst, he wants an easy ride and friends will often let Louis freeload because he is such an agreeable, friendly and pleasant sort. Alternatively, Leakey could let other people take advantage of his hospitality and tolerance.
Leakey also avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it is too much trouble or too petty. Louis Leakey just wants to have a good time.
His love feelings are easily aroused and his romantic relationships begin with a sudden electric attraction, but they often end abruptly, and Leakey may be in and out of love relationships - especially in his younger years. Louis Leakey craves emotional excitement and needs to feel spontaneous and free, so he may avoid making firm personal commitments. Unusual or nontraditional forms of love and relationships appeal to Leakey, and he is attracted to unique, creative or unstable people.
Louis Leakey experiences powerful, compelling emotional and sexual attractions, and he may feel that he has little choice or control over his desires. Louis Leakey has an intense need for love and may be emotionally greedy or insatiable. His love relationships are passionate and often tumultuous and painful as well. Jealousy, power struggles or possessiveness can become areas of conflict in his relationships. On the positive side, Louis Leakey can be unusually creative and bring about beneficial and healing changes in the lives of others, motivated by his deeply felt love.
Louis has an affectionate nature and is in harmony with his environment. Charming and friendly, he is on good terms with most of the people in his sphere. His friends and associates mean a lot to Louis Leakey and his relationships are positive and loving.
