Van Johnson gets a lot of emotional fulfillment through his involvement in groups, clubs, organizations, community activities, or a network of close friends who support and care for him. Van Johnson makes friends his family, and he feels a close kinship with people who share some ideals or beliefs that he holds dear. Van Johnson needs close relationships with people outside of his physical family.
He is temperamental and impatient and can be very difficult to live with. Van Johnson tends to respond with a temper tantrum (overt or subtle) if his desires are frustrated. Van Johnson becomes very irritable and bad-tempered if he lacks vigorous physical activity or other outlets for his aggressive, feisty spirit.
Although Van Johnson gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), he also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure, which enable Van Johnson to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies. This side of his is described below.
Serious and emotionally reserved, Van Johnson was probably never an exuberant, playful child, and he rarely expresses himself in a spontaneous, childlike manner.

Learning to appreciate his own company and find satisfying solitary activities is essential to Charles' emotional well-being.
His thinking is dictated by his feelings and Van Johnson may rely on his intuitions and impressions rather than practical means. His advice may often be sought and heeded, because Van Johnson seems to know and understand what motivates others.

Van Johnson is a very sociable, congenial person and he wilts very quickly without relationships with good friends and people to share good times with.

He is intensely amorous and attractive to the opposite sex, and is not inclined to friendly platonic relationships. There is a great deal of tension in his love relationships - often because Van Johnson puts his desires ahead of his partner's, and is impatient to have his love needs satisfied.

Van Johnson can "burn himself out" by pouring so much of his energy into romance.
While he may seek loving relationships and an "everlasting" love, this is not easy for Van Johnson to find - or more precisely, to sustain. When Charles becomes romantically involved with someone, either he or the other person will create rifts once a certain level of comfort and predictability has been achieved. Even if there is no outward break in the relationship, a certain emotional aloofness or dissatisfaction is apt to develop. This is because Van Johnson really wants both closeness and absolute freedom - a combination that is difficult to attain. However, if he does not at least attempt to honestly fulfill both of these urges, events seemingly out of the blue will wreak havoc in Charles' closest relationships.
He is likely to have very strange experiences in love relationships. Van Johnson is inclined to fantasize a lot about love and seems to admire the unattainable. Strongly attracted to the spiritual dimensions of life, he may pursue the study of mystical and occult subjects.
