Although Robert Altman has very strong feelings and often reacts to situations passionately (as described on the previous page), he is basically very tender and softhearted. There are at least two sides to Altman: a rather jealous and guarded side, and a much more lenient, generous and forgiving side (discussed below).
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Robert Altman as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Altman may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Robert Altman usually keeps to himself.
Robert shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Robert has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Robert Altman sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Altman tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Robert has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Altman will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Altman tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Robert Altman does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Robert Altman has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Altman more than it bothers him.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Robert Altman prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Altman invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
