Serious and responsible, he tries to carry the world on his shoulders and rarely lets others know that he needs help and support. Max Ernst denies or ignores his own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept him if he appears "weak". He is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and tells himself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Max Ernst needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with his "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, he may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. His feelings and loyalties run deep, but he often does not let people know how much he cares. Max Ernst also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy himself, and play.
Max Ernst has a sympathetic nature and instinctively reaches out to people in need of help. Ernst also has a deeply ingrained tendency to want to improve or "fix" other people's lives, which can be annoying to the person who has no desire to be changed or "helped" in this way. For Max, affection and caring must be expressed in tangible acts or service of some kind.
He is assertive and confronts difficulties in a direct, no-nonsense sort of way. Max Ernst cannot tolerate self-pity or passivity, and he can be rather brusque with others' emotional problems. "Stop crying and do something about it" might be Ernst's motto.
Although Ernst gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), he also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure, which enable Max Ernst to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies. This side of his is described below.
Max Ernst has an inner poise and balance that enables him to act in a cool, efficient manner during emotional trauma and stress. He maintains his perspective and objectivity about highly charged emotional issues - sometimes to the chagrin of others who might wish that Ernst would react more intensely. Max is quietly supportive and faithful to his friends and loved ones.
His will tends to be a bit weak and he seems to lack courage. Somewhat slow to take action, Max Ernst thinks that he will fail because of his inadequacies as a person. He keeps his feelings to himself and should guard against depression and pessimism.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Max Ernst gives very selflessly and devotedly to those he loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, Max Ernst may become romantically involved with a person because he or she expresses a need for love, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
He is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Max feels he can have a deep spiritual relationship with. Max Ernst idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
Max is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show Ernst places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Also, Max Ernst feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with his own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of his.
He is kindhearted and generous with both his money and his affections, and he is not happy if he has to budget or restrict himself in any way. Pettiness or stinginess is foreign to Max's nature and Max Ernst feels most comfortable in an elegant, beautiful atmosphere. Asceticism is not for Ernst. Gracious and charitable, he enjoys sponsoring social events or cultural activities. Max Ernst has an optimistic, friendly attitude towards others and tends to bring out the finer side of people. He is likely to fall in love with someone who is successful, noble and idealistic.
He is open and progressive in his attitude towards love relationships and romance, and spontaneous and free in the way he expresses his love. Max Ernst is always willing to experiment and try anything new that his partner suggests, and he enjoys being surprised. A relationship in which both Max and his partner have a good deal of freedom and independence will hold Ernst's interest much more than a safe, predictable one.
Max Ernst has a very romantic, idealistic vision of love relationships and may be disillusioned to discover that no real, flesh-and-blood human being ever quite lives up to his dream image of the "perfect love". Though Max frequently fantasizes about love and romance - he may avoid becoming intimately involved with anyone or making definite commitments. When it comes to love, Ernst can be evasive and dishonest with himself and others. Some of Ernst's love yearnings may be expressed through art, music or an involvement with mysticism.
