Paul Éluard's appearance and the way he comes across to others (as described on the previous page) are very congruent with his true nature (described below). He is very idealistic, and a great lover of space and freedom.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Paul Éluard, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Paul Éluard probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Éluard can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Paul Éluard has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Éluard always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Paul Éluard has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Paul has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Éluard expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Paul's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Paul Éluard enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Éluard.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Éluard. Paul Éluard has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Paul Éluard may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Paul Éluard tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Paul Éluard has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
