Eminem was born Marshall Mathers on October 17, 1972 in Saint Joseph, Missouri. He became an international sensation after the release of his single “My Name Is.” He won the Best Rap Album Grammy for three consecutive albums: The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show. He also received the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Lose Yourself,” from the 2002 film 8 Mile, which he also starred in.
What is Eminem’s Personality Type?
Of a fairly introspective nature, Eminem is attentive to his special inner qualities which enable him to perceive the very essence of the people he meets, the situations he encounters, and the objects he sees. He has the ability to understand through his intuition. This faculty is based upon an openness to the other, and thus a certain duality: a budding extroversion, and the predominance of the object over the subject (Eminem) in his consciousness. As a result, he has a strong sense of the group and would sacrifice his own ego rather than commit something that is a sin in his eyes, neglecting his social obligations or failing to fulfill his duties to the people he is close to. He can sometimes be perceived by others as unreliable or untrustworthy, due to a sort of opportunism or disloyalty.
However, these are superficial characteristics. The real reason for his behavior is psychological and resides in the fact that he is ready to do anything to maintain the harmony of the group (or simply satisfy the expectations of the other). However, he sometimes lacks self-assertion, and this makes him contradictory and unreliable when he faces certain superficial decisions.
Moreover, he has a chameleon-like ability to blend in with situations and prevailing moods. He is thus quite a success in social settings, and he thrives on friendships, partnerships, networks, and corporate liaisons. His mind is amazingly flexible, arranging harmonious and productive encounters between people and ideas. All of his emotional health is invested in a desire to participate, to mingle, to exchange. Although he is consciously aware of an ardent desire to be sociable, unconsciously he blames himself for failing to achieve his ideal goal, which always seems to elude him. This is why he sometimes has phases of discouragement, followed by renewed zeal in his work efforts or group participation. Because he is always seeking the perfect group, the ideal form of cooperation, he sometimes despair of ever attaining it. He has a natural tendency to find common ground for people, to reconcile differing opinions and viewpoints, and he is partial to any arrangement which promotes cooperation or fellowship.
Because he is not aggressive by nature, he knows how to make peace; he is a skillful diplomat and go-between. As a corollary to his opening to society, he is closely related to his environment. The society in which he moves contributes in large part to the formation of his character and attitude. Through social contacts and friendships, he has elaborated a personal code of ethics which reconciles societal norms and the values his family, friends, and relations have passed on to him. It is important for him to find a way to make all these components harmonize, or he will feel a bit lost and bewildered. He needs recognition. He sometimes attaches great importance to other people’s opinions of him. He enjoys love and appreciation and is touched by praise as much as he is upset by criticism. He has a vital need for others and loathes solitude. Emotional functions are central to his psyche, and the encounter with a kindred spirit could be a turning point for him, a momentous event in his life. Since he is aware of this, and his tactfulness makes him quite successful with his love interests, he may be content to go from affair to affair without ever settling down, out of the fear of shutting out an even greater possibility for passionate love.
He loves to charm and be charmed and excels at the subtle art of amorous conquest, the pleasure of laughter and chat which hints at the promise of even greater pleasure in store. He is skilled at alluding to unnamed urges while seeming to engage in polite conversation.
Eminem finds his work extremely rewarding. Daily life and routine activities are excellent sources of self-fulfillment for Eminem.
Eminem derives great rewards from every source of pleasure or creation (physical, artistic, or emotional). Eminem has a penchant for speculation.
At the time of your birth, my rising sign was located in Taurus (the Bull), while the sun was passing through the sign of Libra (the Scales). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide my personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of my character and indicate certain contradictions which may create tension:
Sociability – Opposition to progress – Adaptability – Compassion – Sensitivity – Perseverance – Tolerance – Pragmatism – Peaceful nature – Productivity – Sense of harmony – Sensuality – Worldly cares.
Inclined by temperament to build a harmonious life for myself, I am drawn to human warmth and cannot be happy unless I have achieved healthy, stable emotional relations.
I delight in my power to please and seduce and have a pronounced taste for art and beauty. My sensual side, combined with my talents for harmony and rhythm, and an ear for melody would make me successful as a musical composer, an architect, or any other artistic career which requires a keen sense of beauty.
Born seven to ten days after the rising of the new moon, Eminem is said to be a “first quarter” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration means that his character is strong-willed and sometimes proud, always determined to buck convention and innovate. Monotony is unbearable to him, and he chafes under the yoke of routine. As a result, he often runs into trouble with authority figures.
When overwhelmed by his conscience, he raves about how destructive it is to long for the past, how ridiculous it is to be old-fashioned, and how obsolete the old values are.
Generally speaking, his monthly energy flow crests about seven to ten-and-a-half days after the full moon. He would be wise to schedule intensive work phases at that time, as well as ambitious and demanding projects. At that time, his initiatives will be most successful, especially if he is trying to create something new, original, and cutting-edge!
Who is Eminem’s perfect match?
This relationship could yield a high degree of psychological compatibility and powerful mutual attraction. The physical and psychological reality of Eminem’s personality will exert a magnetic pull over the sensitivity, receptivity, tenderness, and other key qualities of his partner.
Eminem would be particularly well-matched to someone who mirrors his underlying psychic and unconscious aspirations. The secret ideal he cherishes of the perfect partner would be aroused; it would harmonize beautifully with his ideal imaginary lover. This great psychic compatibility is the result of a harmonious relationship between the Moon of the masculine chart and the sun of the feminine one. It is propitious to a rich flow of energies between the most hidden and secret parts of both people. They are linked by an unconscious emotional bond.
This type of partner would complement Eminem perfectly in emotional and sentimental terms. This person would reflect and fulfill his ideal of sensuality to the greatest degree. Moreover, his ideal partner would resonate lastingly with his own psychic projections of his ideal. This positive relationship between the unconscious sexual yearnings of both partners would be likely to yield sensual relations of a tantalizingly mysterious and secret nature.
Modest and reserved, Eminem sometimes has trouble expressing his feelings and emotions. He might come off as reserved but conceal a great sensuality the right person will bring out. The inhibitions that potentially belabored him in his youth will vanish at the approach of love. He would find great fulfillment with this type of intelligent, elegant, disciplined individual. Like him, they would value honesty, loyalty, and clarity in a relationship.
