Behind Gosselaar's rather lighthearted, witty and restless demeanor described in the previous chapter, lies a sensitive, poetic soul. Mark-Paul Gosselaar 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-Paul Gosselaar 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 Gosselaar may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Mark-Paul Gosselaar usually keeps to himself.
Mark-Paul 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-Paul 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-Paul Gosselaar 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, Gosselaar 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-Paul 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. Gosselaar will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Gosselaar tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Mark-Paul Gosselaar 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-Paul Gosselaar 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 Gosselaar more than it bothers him.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Gosselaar. Mark-Paul Gosselaar has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Mark-Paul Gosselaar may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar 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-Paul has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Mark-Paul sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Mark-Paul really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Mark-Paul is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Mark-Paul Gosselaar is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Gosselaar may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
Emotionally, it could be difficult for Mark-Paul Gosselaar to discern illusion from reality. He is impressionable and sympathetic toward others. However, Gosselaar tends to idealize others and could adopt a fantasy view of a wonderful marriage, causing disappointment later on.
Gosselaar depends a great deal on other people's reactions to him and rarely acts until he sees how he affects others. Mark-Paul Gosselaar must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Mark-Paul should also learn to rely heavily on his hunches.
