The Core Emotional Issues of the Gonadal Body Type are Identity, Repression, Not good enough
My strong sexual energy makes me more physically attractive. I am highly emotional and physically expressive, easily showing my anger and hurt as well as my affection, nurturing and joy. I don’t handle stress well, so playtime is important for me in maintaining a positive outlook. In social settings I bring out the best in others, with a special ability to recognize and appreciate the feelings of others, and to offer emotional support. I am more people-oriented than task-oriented and I thrive on substantial human contact.
Being emotionally sensitive, I feel others’ pain and try to assist them. I enjoy helping others to see their own beauty as I do, often by enhancing their appearance or beautifying their environment. I am results-oriented, with more of an eye for the big picture than the details. I like to see my efforts quickly make a difference, often jumping enthusiastically into a project without fully considering what I need to do to finish it. My self-worth is related to how others perceive my accomplishments. This need for validation can lead to self-sacrifice and insecurity.
By nature I like to create pleasure and be playful. I am prone to being controlled by my emotions. When I am tired or stressed, I typically have difficulty focusing or concentrating. To compensate I will do “no-brainer” routine tasks like weeding the garden or shopping. Playtime, or time set aside to completely relax, is essential as it allows me to reconnect with my basic nature. I am more people-oriented than task-oriented. Being playful provides the ideal environment for me to express the full range of the positive side of my emotions with the people I love. Being highly verbal and sensitive to the emotions of others often leads to my own emotional volatility. I am motivated by beauty, which makes it important for me to look good, and to project a strong, proud, even macho image. My strength lies in seeing beauty and bringing the beauty out in others. My true inner beauty is most readily accessed when being playful.
