Spike does not appear to be an intensely emotional or sentimental person, and he is often unaware of his own or other people's deeper feelings and emotional needs. Tears and tantrums bewilder him and make him very uncomfortable. Spike Milligan would rather settle differences by talking things out reasonably and rationally, but he tends to ignore or poke fun at any attempt to probe his own or others' inner depths.
Spike Milligan avoids heavy, demanding emotional relationships and is wary of making personal commitments.
He needs ample mental stimulation and feels close to people with whom he can share thoughts and intellectual interests. Conversation is very important to Milligan. The strong, silent partner is not for him.
He is emotionally expressive and often dramatizes his feelings by acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. Spike Milligan cannot hide his instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and he does not make any pretenses about his personal sympathies or antipathies.
Spike Milligan has a childlike openness and playfulness that is very appealing to others but sometimes gets him into trouble, as Spike takes risks on an impulse or a whim.
He is uninhibited and spontaneous and will often do something unexpected or humorous in order to loosen people up and get them out of their rut. Spike Milligan craves emotional stimulation, excitement, surprises and anything new. Milligan also loves to feel free and unfettered.
His emotions are very intense, but often hidden. Like a volcano, one minute Spike Milligan seems quite peaceful and the next, he is exploding with great force and unexpected fury. The intensity of his reactions often surprises even him. Spike has tremendous zeal and tends to be an emotional fanatic about things he cares about. His feelings and desires can be so compelling that he does things against his better judgment and reason. Milligan can also be very manipulative, in a subtle way. His personal relationships are deeply emotional, passionate and often stormy and painful as well.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Spike Milligan gives very selflessly and devotedly to those he loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, Spike Milligan may become romantically involved with a person because he or she expresses a need for love, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
He is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Spike feels he can have a deep spiritual relationship with. Spike Milligan idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
Milligan is very much aware of his personal appearance, attractiveness and charm, and he can be rather narcissistic. On the other hand, Spike Milligan is concerned with getting along with others and he has a pleasing, agreeable manner that people find quite appealing. Spike uses tact or charm to get what he wants rather than intense effort or force. His desire for love and affection colors everything Spike Milligan does.
Spike Milligan shares whatever he has freely and his friends know they can always count on Spike's generosity and support - both emotional and material. His good-hearted acceptance and tolerance of others' foibles goes a long way toward maintaining harmony in his relationships. Spike Milligan also has a lazy streak and sometimes avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it seems like too much trouble and too petty. Spike likes to socialize and will use any excuse to celebrate with friends. He cannot tolerate being overly restricted by his love partner, and encourages his partner's freedom as well.
Spike's pleasure-loving nature and his emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing his affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Spike Milligan is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times he is far more contained as described here. Because he is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Milligan is to being left out or unappreciated.
Spike Milligan tends to deprive himself of pleasure, friendship and love, either because he feels he does not deserve it or he thinks it is wrong to enjoy life too much. Milligan may have been indoctrinated with a duty-and-work-before-all-else attitude early on. He may also think of himself as unattractive or unlovable, and thus close his heart to opportunities to share love and companionship, never quite believing that others actually like him. Spike Milligan is apt to prefer solitude to being in uncomfortable relationships or social situations, and his shyness may be intense - especially when young. Learning to truly love and accept himself - including whatever flaws or imperfections Spike believes he has - is vital for him. This process of self-appreciation and self-love will reap rewards, especially in later life.
