Behind Sewell's rather cool, conservative, somewhat impersonal and businesslike demeanor (as described on the previous page), he is much more passionate and emotional. Rufus Sewell often conceals his vulnerability beneath a veneer of toughness or indifference.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Rufus Sewell is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Rufus Sewell usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Rufus Sewell also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Rufus Sewell commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Rufus merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Sewell has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Rufus will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Rufus does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Sewell can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Sewell can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Rufus Sewell emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Rufus Sewell loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Rufus never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Rufus Sewell tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Sewell is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Rufus Sewell is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Sewell can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Rufus Sewell enjoys fine health as well.
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening up to him at just the right time. Because Rufus Sewell is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate success in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Rufus should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
While Rufus Sewell does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Sewell's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Rufus Sewell tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Rufus has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Rufus and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Rufus Sewell needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities may say.
