Thaao Penghlis has frequent emotional outbursts due to his fiery temper and emotional impulsiveness. Penghlis expresses himself very directly and honestly and no one has to guess what his true feelings are. However, Thaao Penghlis dislikes showing any personal weakness or his need for support, comfort and nurturing. He is often impatient with himself and others. Thaao abhors emotional dependency and dislikes "complainers".
Thaao Penghlis inspires others to take positive action in their lives through his own enthusiasm and eagerness to meet life's challenges, and he is attracted to people who are adventurous, courageous and independent. Thaao is rather bossy but does not like to be with people that he can boss around too much. He enjoys a good fight sometimes. Relationships that are built on mutual respect and emotional freedom are ideal for Penghlis.
Thaao Penghlis becomes very cross if he lacks vigorous physical activity. Penghlis feels his best if he frequently "does battle" on the tennis or racquetball court (or engages in another form of competitive sport).
He is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for his belongings give Thaao Penghlis a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to him. Antiques or articles with sentimental value from Thaao's past are especially dear to him.
Thaao Penghlis may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of his immediate circle.
Gregarious and fun loving, he is always out to have a good time. Thaao Penghlis tends to "play now, pay later" and is prone to overspend, overeat, drink too much, and in general overdo, and even more so when in the company of others. It is hard for Thaao Penghlis to say no, especially when Penghlis' emotions or appetites are involved. Generous to a fault, he is likely to be very free both with money and with affection.
There is another side to Thaao Penghlis as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Thaao Penghlis often feels that he must do something or be something other than what he is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. He is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though he may appear cool or distant, Penghlis actually cares very much about being included. Because he is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Thaao Penghlis to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises he may endure once he lets others really know him in an intimate, personal way. His reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Thaao Penghlis becomes very attached to the few people he considers "real friends". Penghlis can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if he views them as times to nourish himself and develop his own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
In love relationships, Thaao Penghlis seeks companionship and friendship with someone who is fun loving, playful and open to adventure and new experiences. He enjoys traveling together, meeting new people and making new friends. Honeymooning in a distant location appeals to Thaao, and he is also attracted to foreigners or people with diametrically different backgrounds than his own. Thaao Penghlis supports his partner in taking risks and making positive changes, rather than preserving the status quo. He also very much wants a partner who will encourage his own aspirations and dreams. It is very important to Thaao that he have a spiritual or intellectual rapport with his love partner, perhaps more important than the emotional/physical aspect. Thaao Penghlis is not especially sentimental and his love partner may feel that he is too casual and not serious or romantic enough.
Thaao is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling and people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show him places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Moreover, Thaao Penghlis feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only for his own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of his.
Thaao Penghlis is not a traditionalist where love and relationships are concerned, and he often feels that formal commitments and conventional relationships are too binding and restricting. Thus, Thaao is not very comfortable with forming lasting attachments or letting other people depend on him. He may be attracted to wild, unreliable, highly creative and/or unstable people who do not offer him any security. Even if Thaao Penghlis professes to want something steady and solid, he is very reluctant to give up his freedom and autonomy for its sake. At best, he is suited to serial monogamy or relationships that leave Penghlis a lot of breathing space.
Thaao Penghlis has a rich, colorful, dreamy imagination and a refined sense of beauty. Involvement in the arts, or with artistic, sensitive, or spiritually inclined people is very satisfying to him. In his friendships and romantic relationships, Penghlis tends to be unselfish, giving, and forgiving. Thaao Penghlis might enjoy joining with others for charitable events or social service.
Thaao Penghlis loves deeply, passionately and wholeheartedly, and others may find his intensity either extremely attractive or threatening. He is charismatic and can have a powerful emotional impact on others, especially those of the opposite sex. Penghlis may use his attractiveness to manipulate others, sometimes without even realizing it.
He may be subject to periodic changes of mood, is serious, somewhat somber, and he seems to lack confidence in himself and could have trouble giving of his. Thaao Penghlis tends to avoid close relationships, expecting to be disappointed if he lets anyone come too close.
