Behind Lindsay's rather lighthearted, witty and restless demeanor described in the previous chapter, lies a sensitive, poetic soul. Mark Lindsay may cover up his sensitivity with light banter and cleverness - or he may use his verbal and communication skills to express his imagination, kindness and refined sensitivity.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Mark Lindsay as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Lindsay may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Mark Lindsay usually keeps to himself.
Mark shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Mark has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Mark Lindsay sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Lindsay tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Mark has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Lindsay will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Lindsay tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Mark Lindsay does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Mark Lindsay has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Lindsay more than it bothers him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Lindsay. Mark Lindsay has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Mark Lindsay may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Mark Lindsay often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Mark has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Mark sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Mark really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
