Nat King Cole
Behind King Cole's rather prudent, shrewd and guarded manner (described in the previous chapter), he is really kind, altruistic and idealistic. He is also much more vulnerable than he appears. He is very prudent and sharp in handling some of his affairs, but occasionally King Cole's deep-rooted idealism can cloud his vision. Moreover, he may wage an internal battle, swinging between traditional, conservative pragmatism and lofty idealism.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Nat King Cole 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 King Cole may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Nat King Cole usually keeps to himself.
Nat King 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. Nat King has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Nat King Cole 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, King Cole 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. Nat King 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. King Cole will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and King Cole tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Nat King Cole 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. Nat King Cole 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 King Cole more than it bothers him.
Ownership gives Nat King Cole a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Nat King also has a natural instinct for or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
He is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Nat King Cole could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Nat King likes to flirt and tends to fall in love at first sight, but he then transfers his affections to someone else for no apparent reason.
It could be hard for Nat King Cole to face up to his mistakes because of his insecurity and self-doubt. His early years may have been undermined by poor relationships with one or both of his parents who may have been ill, weak or alcoholic.
