Although Niarchos may seem quite poised, even-tempered, balanced and harmonious (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is actually rather moody and emotional. Inside, he is much more subjective and biased in his attitudes than his fair-minded, reasonable demeanor may imply.
Stavros has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Niarchos to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Niarchos tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Stavros likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Stavros Niarchos has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Stavros Niarchos than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Stavros Niarchos takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Stavros Niarchos feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Stavros Niarchos needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Stavros Niarchos becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Stavros Niarchos functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Niarchos often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Stavros Niarchos also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Niarchos' strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Niarchos is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Stavros Niarchos 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.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Stavros Niarchos overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Stavros Niarchos attends to his emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of his intuition, dreams and gut feelings, he will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
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 Stavros Niarchos 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. Stavros should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
Sensitive and imaginative, he is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Stavros Niarchos is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Stavros 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, Stavros often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Stavros has an ethereal quality about him.
Niarchos always seems to find the right words to verbalize his feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Stavros Niarchos also has a keen sense of beauty and he probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
Niarchos has an intrinsic creative and artistic ability and an unusual sense of form. Stavros Niarchos also has a deep need for relationships that offer affection and can be quite intense when by inner compulsion he feels drawn to someone. His relationships tend to be peculiar in some way.
