Although Terry Gilliam appears conservative, polite and unassuming (as described on the previous page), at heart he is very strong-willed and passionate. His cool, refined exterior masks a raw and intense nature, as discussed below.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Terry Gilliam is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Terry Gilliam usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Terry Gilliam also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Terry Gilliam commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Terry merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Gilliam has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Terry will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Terry does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Gilliam can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Gilliam can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Terry Gilliam emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Terry Gilliam loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Terry never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Terry Gilliam tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
The urge to learn and communicate is essential to Terry Gilliam, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Gilliam is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Terry enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Terry Gilliam takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Terry, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Terry Gilliam may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
Terry Gilliam deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Terry 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. Terry likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Terry Gilliam seems to have an emotional and physical unrest and he always have to be on the move. Terry could find it difficult to control himself and he tends to get angry and upset easily. Eccentric and individualistic, he can create a stir wherever he goes.
