Though Raimi may seem breezy, independent and freedom loving (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is in fact not completely happy without a partner. He enjoys being on the move and exploring new territory, but wants a traveling companion! Raimi yearns for fulfilling, yet non-restricting relationships.
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. Sam Raimi instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and he is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Sam does all he can to avoid conflict and discord. His spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and he often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Raimi since he can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make his own decisions. Raimi will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. He prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on his own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Sam Raimi, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Sam Raimi invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Sam Raimi seeks a partner who is his equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. He makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and he enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Raimi perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Sam Raimi appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in his personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to him.

He believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Sam Raimi also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Raimi dresses and furnishes his home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Raimi. Sam Raimi has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Sam Raimi may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Sam Raimi has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Sam Raimi has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
While Sam Raimi 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!).
Sam Raimi has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Raimi also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
Along with his energy and drive, Sam Raimi has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Raimi, as well as a doer and a fighter. Sam wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for him.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Sam Raimi also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Sensitive and imaginative, he is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Sam Raimi is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Sam has an abundance of dreams, visions and longings, but does not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them materialize. Gentle, idealistic and peace loving, Sam often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Sam has an ethereal quality about him.
Sam Raimi has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance he has to overcome. Whatever he does, he knows what he wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
It could be hard for Sam Raimi to face up to his mistakes because of his insecurity and self-doubt. His early years may have been undermined by poor relationships with one or both of his parents who may have been ill, weak or alcoholic.
