Though Robin Williams seems powerful and intense in a quiet sort of way (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is really quite soft, sentimental and vulnerable inside.
Robin has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Williams to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Williams tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Robin likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Robin Williams has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Robin Williams than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles.

Robin Williams functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Williams often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Robin Williams also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Williams' strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Williams.
