Aaron Elkins, the mystery writer born under the sign of Leo, has made a name for himself in the literary world. Born in New York City in 1935, Elkins is best known for his novels featuring forensic anthropologist Gideon Oliver, “The Skeleton Detective.” His work earned him an Edgar Award in 1988 for his novel Old Bones. Elkins has been writing for decades and his work shows no signs of stopping.
What is Aaron Elkins’s Personality Type?
Aaron Elkins is a fiery, emotional creature. As a result of the preponderance of emotion, sensation, and feeling in his psychological make-up, he has acquired a deep sense of his individuality and uniqueness. He sometimes feels “different” – set apart from others. In order to justify this idea of himself, he attempts to behave differently, to impress the crowd, and the product of his efforts is usually rather grandiose and exaggerated. It’s a self-perpetuating bind, because his impressive deeds usually earn recognition for him, and reinforce his self-assurance and his certainty that he does indeed stand head and shoulders above the rest. He sometimes makes an attempt to bluff and show off with an emotional display. He likes to take risks and give people advice. Nevertheless, at the basis of his conduct, there is a feeling of social anxiety, which is probably unconscious or unconfessed. He may fear being absorbed or enslaved by society. The positive side of this unconscious anxiety is that it drives him to create, to counteract the deeply felt effects of time and the masses on his ego. By creating something, he can make his own individual mark on the world; he can organize it to reflect his own image, instead of allowing himself to be submerged by it. The preceding comments about creating the world in your own image are strong indications that he seeks to identify with his superego. The difference between his ideal of himself and the individual he knows himself to be in truth, measured in terms of his social recognition or the recognition of his creations (children, works of art, etc.), will determine his state of mind. It is therefore important for him to make these images match to a certain extent, to reduce the gap as much as possible.
Aaron Elkins finds his work rewarding. Daily life and routine activities are excellent sources of self-fulfillment for him.
Aaron Elkins needs friends and membership in groups to feel fulfilled.
At the time of your birth, your rising sign was located in Libra (the Scales), while the sun was passing through the sign of Leo (the Lion). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide your personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of your character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:
Sociability – Adaptability – Determination – Emotion – Pride and self-assurance – Tolerance – Superiority – Peaceful disposition – Brilliance – Sense of harmony – Generosity – Worldliness – Optimism.
Because you have been endowed with great esthetic sensitivity, you need and love beauty, order, and harmony. Your extreme sociability and difficulty bearing discord are likely to cost you some of your independence, if you are not careful. However, you have remarkable organizational and management skills. Your optimism and enthusiasm, tactfulness, and sincere concern for others make you a natural leader.
Born in the seven to ten days after the full moon rose, Aaron Elkins is of the “last quarter” lunar type. As a result, his personality is fairly independent and self-sufficient. His ideas are original and often bold, but, to his dismay, do not often garner a majority of followers. His sense of humor is his best communications tool, but he often switches to a more severe tone which breaks his charm over his audience, and his methods do not always please the masses. His lack of flexibility hinders his strategies and projects, and he would gain by developing his sense of diplomacy and tact. Although he is not unduly attached to success, because he is so used to being ahead of his time, his failures take a psychological toll on him. Because each setback wears him down a little more, he should try to avoid further disappointments by conforming to contemporary reality a little more closely.
