His pleasant manner and desire to relate harmoniously with others (as discussed in chapter 2), combined with his idealism, receptivity, and impressionability (as discussed below), make Sidney Poitier very self-sacrificing and willing to go the extra mile for someone else's sake. Sidney Poitier has to be wary of his tendency to lack discrimination in his charitable endeavors. He should also avoid trying to help those who are incorrigible. Moreover, he should not be afraid of confrontation. He is inclined to hide his thoughts and feelings, make excuses and even lie, often just to avoid a person or an issue. Sidney Poitier should strive to be honest in his communications, which will also help him to be honest with himself. If he channels his energies well, Poitier can be a asset to others - be it on a professional level as a counselor, teacher, or consultant or on a personal day-to-day level.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Sidney Poitier 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 Poitier may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Sidney Poitier usually keeps to himself.
Sidney 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. Sidney has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Sidney Poitier 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, Poitier 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. Sidney 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. Poitier will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Poitier tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Sidney Poitier 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. Sidney Poitier 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 Poitier more than it bothers him.
Sidney Poitier has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Sidney enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Sidney Poitier has a strong sense of pride.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Sidney Poitier often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Sidney Poitier also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Sidney expects the best, and usually gets it.
His emotions are very intense and Sidney Poitier is excited quite easily. Love is very important to him and he is constantly seeking emotional fulfillment, but he will not waste time with casual relationships.
