Although he is dramatic and likes to show off or stand out in some way (as described on the previous page), there is another side to Pablo Picasso that would gladly hole up in a deep, dark, quiet place. This other, more private and secretive side is described below.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Pablo Picasso is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Pablo Picasso usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Pablo Picasso also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Pablo Picasso commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Pablo merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Picasso has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Pablo will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Pablo does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Picasso can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Picasso can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Pablo Picasso emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Pablo Picasso loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Pablo never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Pablo Picasso tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Pablo Picasso prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Picasso invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and his inner life.
His courage to face life seems to be a bit on the low side and Pablo Picasso is prone to worry a lot. Fear of his own inadequacies could distort his perspective and deplete his strength to go on in the direction he has chosen.
