Paul Stookey has a sympathetic nature and instinctively reaches out to people in need of help. Stookey also has a deeply ingrained tendency to want to improve or "fix" other people's lives, which can be annoying to the person who has no desire to be changed or "helped" in this way. For Paul, affection and caring must be expressed in tangible acts of some kind.
He is a dreamer who is attracted to the inner, mystical side of life, and may have trouble distinguishing the real from the imagined or illusory. Paul does not enjoy confrontation and becomes very evasive when problems in his personal life or relationships arise, and escapes into his imagination in order to avoid dealing with them directly.

He is definitely not one to wear his heart on his sleeve. Paul Stookey cares very much about others' opinions and craves love and appreciation as much as anyone - however one would never know it from Stookey's reserved and seemingly detached demeanor.

He is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy himself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others.

Perhaps due to painful separations in his early life, Paul is very cautious about becoming involved in close relationships and sharing his feelings. Though Stookey craves love and affection, intimacy is difficult for him. He may become romantically involved with people who do not value him or treat him well. Paul Stookey needs to learn to love and value himself before he finds happiness in love.
He is prone to getting involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Paul Stookey to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Stookey may be tempted to use his own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if his intentions are basically good, Paul Stookey will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unsavory aspects of his character (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep surfacing. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
