Though Nelson Eddy seems quite rational and even coolly detached and impersonal at times (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is precisely the opposite when people really get to know him. He is rather sentimental. And though he appears unconventional or nonconforming, Nelson's ties to the past and to family history and tradition run deep. Moreover, Eddy can be very effective at working for human rights and any issues related to women, children and family.
Nelson has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Eddy to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Eddy tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Nelson likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Nelson Eddy has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Nelson Eddy than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Nelson Eddy takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Nelson Eddy feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Nelson Eddy needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Nelson Eddy becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Nelson Eddy functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Eddy often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Nelson Eddy also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Eddy's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Nelson Eddy has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform.

Nelson Eddy has a strong sense of pride.
Nelson Eddy aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what he is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be his faults. Generally, however, Eddy's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Nelson.
His deep comprehension and good powers of concentration give Nelson Eddy the ability to judge matters wisely and prudently. He is a keen observer and also can be a persuasive speaker. Nelson likes to be in control, but needs appreciation and recognition for his efforts.
