Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, Peter Carruthers has an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on telepathy. Peter Carruthers is extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow creature - human or animal - suffer. Because of his kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people suffering from pain or confusion are drawn to Carruthers for help, which he readily gives. Sometimes Carruthers' soft-heartedness is taken advantage of.
He is a gentle, poetic soul and has a great love and affinity for music. Because many of his feelings are vague and he cannot easily verbalize how he experiences life, music seems a natural language for Carruthers. He is also extremely romantic and often "in love with love".
Peter Carruthers has a sympathetic nature and instinctively reaches out to people in need of help. Carruthers 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 Peter, affection and caring must be expressed in tangible acts of some kind.
Peter Carruthers takes offense rather quickly and his instincts are to fight, defend or act first, and ask questions later. He has a tendency for impatience, irritability and outbursts of temper, especially in response to minor frustrations. When he is not actively involved, he is not comfortable. Peter Carruthers actually prefers a rather rambunctious, feisty, competitive atmosphere to a peaceful one.
Although Carruthers gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), he also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure, which enable Peter Carruthers to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies. This side of his is described below.
He is dedicated to the people he cares about and conscientious about fulfilling his responsibilities, especially to family. Family solidarity and cohesiveness are very important to Peter Carruthers; accordingly, so are the traditions, rituals, and memories that keep the bonds strong.
Peter Carruthers is apt to do more than his fair share in the family and go the extra mile, but for the most part this is satisfying rather than burdensome to him.
Although Peter Carruthers was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, he also has a diametrically opposed tendency - namely the urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow Peter's fiery reactions somewhat, or he may seesaw between the two. His softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
The beauty and harmony of his surroundings have a very powerful effect on Carruthers' emotions. He is very sensitive and cannot stand to be in an atmosphere where there is discord or dissonance. Gentle, kindhearted, and peace loving, Peter Carruthers is prepared to sacrifice a great deal in order to avoid a fight and to "make everyone happy".
His intimate and close personal relationships are often intense, highly-charged and difficult, as they trigger deep emotional responses in Peter Carruthers that have more to do with unsatisfied hungers and unmet childhood needs than with the present situation. He may feel like a voracious, bottomless pit when it comes to nurturing and emotional reassurance, and Carruthers' neediness often drives others away. When Peter Carruthers does let himself feel close to another human being, painful, long-buried feelings bubble to the surface as do - perhaps - grief at the losses he suffered or anger at the neglect or hurt he endured. He may also reenact these situations in his present day relationships, in an unconscious effort to resolve and heal old issues. Carruthers will do a lot of cleansing if he can listen to what his feelings are telling him. If not, Peter Carruthers will simply have a tumultuous, passionate and stormy emotional life.

He is quietly devoted and faithful to his loved ones and often becomes subservient to his love partner.

He is timid about expressing too much sentiment or emotion. Peter Carruthers also underestimates his attractiveness and lovability and doubts his own worthiness of love and appreciation.
Peter Carruthers often hides his affection, or finds his feelings difficult to express or get across to the person he loves. Being openly affectionate and trusting often does not seem safe to Peter. He may feel his love will not be appreciated or reciprocated. Peter Carruthers may get involved in secret love relationships or fall in love with a person who is quite unavailable to him.
