Although he is quite tolerant, giving and forgiving (as mentioned in the previous chapter), Mario López has a definite sense of fairness, balance and correct proportions, which prevent Mario from being completely happy in an exclusively benevolent role. Mario López really wants equal and reciprocal relationships - not ones that involve being someone else's servant or caregiver. However, Mario López needs to learn how to assert what he wants and needs, for he tends to "go with the flow" or simply wait for his needs to be met. Consequently, he may feel that he is never able to achieve equality in relationships and ends up being taken advantage of. Moreover, Mario should avoid the tendency to be evasive, indirect, and afraid to confront unpleasant issues. The honest and open relationships López seeks cannot be achieved if he is hiding something!
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. Mario López instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and he is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Mario does all he can to avoid conflict and discord. His spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and he often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to López since he can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make his own decisions. López will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. He prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on his own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Mario López, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Mario López invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Mario López seeks a partner who is his equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. He makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and he enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. López perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Mario López appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in his personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to him. If Mario López fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Mario. He believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Mario López also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way López dresses and furnishes his home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to him.
Mario López invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Mario feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Mario López can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, he identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Mario López insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Mario needs a lifestyle that allows him to be spontaneous. He often feels that he is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
He may lack direction and drive and tends to compare himself unfavorably to others. López alternates between caution and unrealistic expectations and lets others expect too much of him. But Mario López plods forward steadily, reaching success later in life.
