Much of what is stated in the previous chapter is similar to what is stated in this one. T.S. Eliot's need to relate openly and honestly to others is very strong. Thomas has to be wary of the tendency to be so strongly influenced by the ideas and opinions of others that he is unsure of his own.
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. T. S. Eliot 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, Thomas 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 Eliot since he can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make his own decisions. Eliot 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 T. S. Eliot, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
T. S. Eliot invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. T. S. Eliot 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. Eliot perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. T. S. Eliot 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. If T. S. Eliot fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Thomas. He believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
T. S. Eliot also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Eliot 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.
T. S. Eliot tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting himself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Eliot.
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to him at just the right time. Because T. S. Eliot is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate successes in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Thomas should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Thomas' whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
T. S. Eliot deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Thomas has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Thomas likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
T. S. Eliot has a basic need to fit in with others and is always willing to cooperate. He enjoys working with others as a team and is a well liked comrade.
T. S. Eliot 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.
