He is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others his feelings. Though he may love and care for someone a great deal, William Masters rarely expresses his feelings openly and freely. Very often Masters' love for someone is expressed by his wish to help him, do something tangible to benefit him or serve him in some way.
It is also difficult for him to receive warmth, affection or appreciation, for he often feels that he does not really deserve it or that "they do not really mean it". Masters may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than he feels.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes William difficult to live with. William Masters needs to learn to be gentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with himself.
He is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for his belongings give William Masters a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to him. Antiques or things with sentimental value from William's past are especially dear to him.
William Masters 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. William Masters 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 William Masters to say no, especially when Masters' 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 William Masters as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
He is dedicated to the people he cares about and conscientious about meeting his responsibilities, especially to family. Family solidarity and cohesiveness are very important to William Masters and so, therefore, are the traditions, rituals, and memories that keep the bonds strong.
William Masters is apt to do more than his fair share in the family, to go the extra mile, but for the most part this is satisfying rather than burdensome to him.
William Masters seems to have a quick temper, is somewhat irritable and tends to get upset easily. William Masters may also have frequent changes of mood; in fact, his feelings could change from one minute to the next. He also tends to act without sufficient deliberation.
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. William Masters values friendship very highly and in fact, he is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. William 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 Masters, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. William Masters appreciates relationships in which his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
When he cares about someone, William Masters likes to serve them by doing small thoughtful favors, helping them, or doing something tangible to show his affection.
William Masters has also considerable artistic or creative skill. In fact, William is suited for a profession involving beauty or pleasure or making people happy in some way.
There can be a lack of harmony or satisfaction in Masters' romantic relationships - not necessarily a great deal of open conflict, but simply an underlying tension or discontent. This is because the people William Masters finds likeable, lovable, and agreeable to he may not be at all attuned to his sexual tastes and needs. Another, more direct way of saying this is, the people William loves and the people William wants to make love with are very different from one another. William Masters may be confused about what he really needs and wants in personal relationships. Masters needs to acknowledge that he has some conflicting desires (such as a partner who is very gentle and sensitive but also a powerful, dominant personality, or security and commitment in love relationships but also a lot of freedom and excitement.) Trying to satisfy both sides of the equation can be a tricky challenge.
William Masters tends to be attracted to people who are not quite what they seem. Gullible, romantic and rather easily seduced, William frequently falls in love with an image in his own mind, which he then projects onto the object of his affections, only to discover later that this person never really had the lovely qualities he endowed her with. William Masters also confuses love relationships with pity, sacrifice, or misplaced notions of "selfishness", thereby setting himself up to be taken advantage of. He is capable of great devotion to a spiritual cause, for he is actually seeking some sort of transcendent or mystical experience through love.
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 William Masters 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, Masters 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, William Masters 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.
William Masters has a very erotic and sexual nature and may often find himself drawn to another person by a kind of inner compulsion. Masters could become quite obsessed by someone and he has a tendency to control and manipulate his relationships.
