As an extroverted intuitive, Calum Hood is open to the reality of the world, objects, and others. They have a special duality to their mind, which is made up of equal parts of intellectual resources and sensitivity, giving them great intuition and humanism. As a function of this latter, they have a great sense of their fellow human and the oracular art of divining people’s unconscious wishes and motivations – in fact, their advice is often sought. In material terms, it gives them a talent for locating lost objects and a spirit of discovery and invention. Overall, they welcome the signs arriving from the outer world in a positive and liberal way and even incite them to promise more than they can provide. However, when something does not satisfy them, they have the ability to cheer themselves up rapidly and are quick to discover whatever positive aspects it may present. This involves a process of readaptation which requires formidable ego transformations, and they are the challenge for them. It is up to them to renew themselves, to behave in such a way as to drain their environment of fearsome or threatening aspects.
They are usually perceived as an idealist. Deep within themselves, they sense the presence of a “new life.” It is the crucible of their ideal and all their hopes. The “new life” may assume the garb of various philosophies of liberation; whatever they may be, they all endeavor to revitalize alienated modern people, oppressed and downtrodden by Western civilization. However, in their striving to free themselves and their fellow humans from a social contract based on the power of sheer lucre and corrupt lobbies, they display a singular inclination to depend upon the very social forces they intends to topple. The reason for this is that, because they are quite sociable, the only thing they instinctively grasp profoundly is social action and organization. Their perception of their own personality is vague or even negative. In fact, their grandiose personal gestures are motivated by a need to hide their unavowed feelings of inferiority and, at times, their fear of strong personalities. But they are above all an idealist. Hope is the prime mover of their spirit, and they are continually traveling along the axis of the hope/despair polarity. As they apply themselves to ignoring whatever is impervious to their aspirations, they should acquire some certainty of what is still possible – for them and the world. In fact, in relation to their ideal, they behave realistically, although others are unable to perceive their realism because they expressed themselves in such an unconventional and eccentric fashion.
They are passionately committed to the quest and research they have initiated and will pursue it with determination if not fury. They judge and define themselves in opposition to society, and human relations are vital to the evolution of their personality. An elitist, they do not believe in human equality, preferring individuality. They seek a way to unite them without abolishing their differences. They would like to create a utopian community with no ideological imperatives, a self-ruled entity which would recognize its own spirit as the only authority. Their definition of friendship is spiritual love, because it establishes a subtle, vast, and delicate web of bonds, not only between people, but between people and things. They imagine a vow of true friendship as a form of freedom which reassures the freedom of others, instead of threatening it. However, they should become aware that this ideal harmony, which is often rather difficult to put into practice, sometimes hides an unavowed fear of deep commitment to another person. For this reason, their love life is among the more erratic.
Warm and giving to the world in general, in certain special cases they may become cold or even distant. They are determined to elude any perceived threat to their freedom and pick their way through a world of paradoxes and contradictions. Their sensuality is associated with their imagination, and they love people not for what they are in reality, but for the way their imagination transfigures them. The result is disillusionment. But when they fall in love, it’s for real.
