Of a fairly introspective nature, Landon 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 (himself) 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.
