Serious and responsible, he tries to carry the world on his shoulders and rarely lets others know that he needs help and support. Walter Schirra denies or ignores his own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept him if he appears "weak". He is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and tells himself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Walter Schirra needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with his "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, he may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. His feelings and loyalties run deep, but he often does not let people know how much he cares. Walter Schirra also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy himself, and play.
He is emotionally expressive and often dramatizes his feelings, acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. Walter Schirra cannot hide his instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and he does not make any pretenses about his personal sympathies or antipathies.
Walter Schirra has a childlike openness and playfulness which is very appealing to others, but which sometimes gets him into trouble, as Walter takes risks on impulse or whim.
Schirra relates to others on an emotional level, because he feels his emotions so strongly yourself. He is sensitive to others' needs and has the ability to create a cozy atmosphere when he is together with another person.
He is open and unconventional in his attitude towards love relationships, romance and sex. He enjoys socializing, bringing people together and having many friends of both sexes. Walter Schirra values friendship very highly and in fact, he is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Walter desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with his love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to him. The traditional "husband" and "wife" roles do not appeal to Schirra, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Walter Schirra appreciates relationships in which his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
Walter Schirra loves romance and wishes that the honeymoon phase of his love relationships would last forever! Schirra needs dramatic romantic gestures and displays of affection from his partner, and he wants to feel very, very special, like a royalty, to his beloved. Walter Schirra also has an artistic flair and he enjoys creating art or beauty in some form.
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 Walter Schirra puts his desires ahead of his partner's, and is impatient to have his love needs satisfied. The whole arena of love relationships, romance and sex is endlessly fascinating to Walter Schirra and he is not happy without a love partner. Schirra can "burn himself out" by pouring so much of his energy into romance.
He is prone to get involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Walter Schirra to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Schirra may be tempted to use his own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if his intentions are basically good, Walter Schirra will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unlovely aspects of his (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep showing their faces. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
