Behind Rooney's rather jovial, open, enthusiastic demeanor (as described on the previous page), there is a very different side to him - deeper, more serious, and more emotionally intense, as described below. His optimism and idealism are tempered and balanced by a certain skepticism and a sense of the darker side of life and of people.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Wayne Rooney 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. Wayne Rooney 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.
Wayne Rooney 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 Wayne Rooney commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Wayne 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 Rooney has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Wayne 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, Wayne does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Rooney can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Rooney can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Wayne Rooney 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.
Wayne Rooney loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Wayne never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Wayne Rooney tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.

The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Wayne Rooney may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
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. Wayne Rooney 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 Wayne, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Wayne Rooney may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
Inwardly he is zealous and fanatical, though he may hide his personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of his feelings.
