He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole.

The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Paul's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Paul Éluard himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Paul Éluard is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences.

The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Éluard's work or outside social activities.
