Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, Sam Cooke has an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on telepathy. Sam Cooke 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 Cooke for help, which he readily gives. Sometimes Cooke's 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 Cooke. He is also extremely romantic and often "in love with love".
Cooke works well with the public and has an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to Sam, and he may invest more of his emotional energy into his career or public life than in his private life. He is likely to be engaged in providing and caring for others in a professional capacity.
Sam has conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate his personal life and relationships. He may feel that he cannot depend on his love partner to take care of him or perhaps Cooke cannot decide what he really wants in love relationships: a parent or a lover. If his needs for emotional sustenance and love are not satisfied, overeating (especially sweets) can become a problem.
He is easygoing, agreeable and tolerant, willing to overlook others' mistakes, forget the past, and begin anew on a positive note. He enjoys making others comfortable and happy, and he sometimes overdoes his generosity. Sam Cooke often feels that "everything will turn out all right no matter what I do", thereby becoming lazy and lackadaisical.
There is another side to Sam Cooke as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed 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 Sam Cooke; accordingly, so are the traditions, rituals, and memories that keep the bonds strong.
Sam Cooke 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.
He enjoys emotional intensity and is attracted to the mysterious, the unknown, and dangerous or challenging experiences that draw on all of his inner resources. He is able to handle an emotional crisis very well and is interested in the underlying root of emotional problems and how to cure them. Sam Cooke insists on bringing feelings between people out into the open, for he craves real closeness and intimacy in his relationships, without barriers or secrets.
In love relationships, Sam Cooke seeks companionship and friendship with someone who is fun loving, playful and open to adventure and new experiences. He enjoys traveling together, meeting new people and making new friends. Honeymooning in a distant location appeals to Sam, and he is also attracted to foreigners or people with diametrically different backgrounds than his own. Sam Cooke supports his partner in taking risks and making positive changes, rather than preserving the status quo. He also very much wants a partner who will encourage his own aspirations and dreams. It is very important to Sam that he have a spiritual or intellectual rapport with his love partner, perhaps more important than the emotional/physical aspect. Sam Cooke is not especially sentimental and his love partner may feel that he is too casual and not serious or romantic enough.
When he cares about someone, Sam Cooke likes to show his affection with small favors or tangible gestures.
Sam Cooke also has considerable artistic or creative skill. In fact, Sam is suited for a profession involving beauty or pleasure or making people happy in one form or another.
His tastes and natural inclinations border on the extravagant and luxurious. Whether or not Sam Cooke possesses the resources to satisfy these desires or the ambition to provide these things for himself, he wants a life of plenty, ease and comfort. Sam may cause trouble in his love relationships by focusing too much attention on money or "lifestyle" rather than on the person he is with. Sam Cooke may also attract gold diggers or parasites who will take advantage of his hospitality as long as he allows them to. Indiscretion in matters of both heart and pocketbook can be problems as well.
He is open and progressive in his attitude towards love relationships and romance, and spontaneous and free in the way he expresses his love. Sam Cooke is always willing to experiment and try anything new that his partner suggests, and he enjoys being surprised. A relationship in which both Sam and his partner have a good deal of freedom and independence will hold Cooke's interest much more than a safe, predictable one.
