Pope John Paul II
The Pope does not appear to be an intensely emotional or sentimental person, and he is often unaware of his own or other people's deeper feelings and emotional needs. Tears and tantrums bewilder him and make him very uncomfortable. Pope John Paul II would rather settle differences by talking things out reasonably and rationally, but he tends to ignore or poke fun at any attempt to probe his own or others' inner depths.
Pope John Paul II avoids heavy, demanding emotional relationships and is wary of making personal commitments.
He needs ample mental stimulation and feels close to people with whom he can share thoughts and intellectual interests. Conversation is very important to Karol Wojtyla. The strong, silent partner is not for him.
Though he wants close relationships very much, Pope John Paul II often closes himself off and does not really trust others who may wish to get to know him. Karol Wojtyla is very wholehearted in his feelings and responses to people, and he wants all or nothing from the people he cares for.
Pope John Paul II often feels that he must do something or be something other than what he is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. He is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though he may appear cool or distant, Karol Wojtyla actually cares very much about being included. Because he is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Pope John Paul II to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises he may endure once he lets others really know him in an intimate, personal way. His reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Pope John Paul II becomes very attached to the few people he considers "real friends". Karol Wojtyla can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if he views them as times to nourish himself and develop his own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
In addition to The Pope's rather introverted, serious or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Pope John Paul II craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Karol Wojtyla rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance each other out. His freer and unpredictable side will now be described.
Pope John Paul II craves excitement, change and discovery, and cannot tolerate a routine or lifestyle that offers little in the way of surprise or challenge. Excitable, spontaneous and enthusiastic about anything new, he may be perceived by others as being too impulsive, especially in personal relationships. It is not easy for Pope John Paul II to make or keep commitments, since he does not know how he will be feeling from one day to the next. Emotional freedom is very important to Karol Wojtyla. His domestic life may be very unstable - but Karol Wojtyla likes it that way.
In love relationships, Pope John Paul II is steadfast and loyal, especially if he has a warm, demonstrative partner. He is very sensual in nature and craves plenty of touching and physical affection. The Pope enjoys being pampered with a good meal, a loving massage or other sensual delights. He is a wonderful lover who is very attentive to the comfort and enjoyment of his loved one. Pope John Paul II responds intensely to beauty and physical appearance, and the physical attractiveness of his partner is very important to him.
Karol Wojtyla is a very personable, affectionate, loving friend and will always have many people in his relationships that love and cherish him. Pope John Paul II prefers being with others rather than on his own, and he feels very incomplete without a special person in his life to share his love with.

Pope John Paul II shares whatever he has freely and his friends know they can always count on The Pope's generosity and support - both emotional and material. His good-hearted acceptance and tolerance of others' foibles goes a long way toward maintaining harmony in his relationships. Pope John Paul II also has a lazy streak and sometimes avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it seems like too much trouble and too petty. The Pope likes to socialize and will use any excuse to celebrate with friends. He cannot tolerate being overly restricted by his love partner, and encourages his partner's freedom as well.
