Open and generous, Thomas Huxley enjoys a wide circle of friends and acquaintances and he thrives on sociability and fellowship. He is adventurous, playful, freedom loving, and always ready for a good time. Huxley rarely allows obstacles or difficulties to keep him down, for no matter how bleak the past or present, Thomas always expects a better, brighter future. In fact, he is uncomfortable with his own or other people's problems and emotional pain. Thomas Huxley often tries to "cheer up" or offer philosophical advice to those who are hurting, but he unwittingly avoids or ignores the emotions involved.

He needs love, affection, nurturing and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as Thomas Huxley is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". Thomas has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make him cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation. Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for Thomas - one that can be enormously satisfying if he can achieve it, and a source of great sadness if he cannot.
He is easygoing, agreeable and tolerant, willing to overlook others' mistakes, forget the past, and begin anew on a positive note. He enjoys making others comfortable and happy, and he sometimes overdoes his generosity. Thomas Huxley often feels that "everything will turn out all right no matter what I do", thereby becoming lazy and lackadaisical.
There is another side to Thomas Huxley as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Some rather acute fears of being excluded, rejected, left out in the cold or separated from loved ones can make Thomas Huxley either extremely cautious about getting close to people or clingy toward whoever gives him any warmth or security. Thomas Huxley tends to withhold and clamp down on many of his feelings and craves nurturing and security, perhaps feeling that they are unacceptable or will never be satisfied.

Thomas' 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.
