You are sensitive to the emotions of those around you, and you are able to read the subtleties of people’s behavior. You are able to understand them through your intuition, and you have a deep empathy for others. You have a strong sense of the group, and you would sacrifice your own ego to maintain the harmony of the group. However, you sometimes lack self-assertiveness, and this makes you contradictory and unreliable when you face certain superficial decisions. Moreover, you have a chameleon-like ability to blend in with situations and prevailing moods, which makes you quite successful in social settings. Your mind is amazingly flexible, arranging harmonious and productive encounters between people and ideas. All of your emotional health is invested in a desire to participate, to mingle, to exchange. Although you are consciously aware of an ardent desire to be sociable, unconsciously you blame yourself for failing to achieve your ideal goal, which always seems to elude you. This is why you sometimes have phases of discouragement, followed by renewed zeal in your work efforts or group participation. Because you are always seeking the perfect group, the ideal form of cooperation, you sometimes despair of ever attaining it.
John Lackey is a Centaur-Archer, which means that he has a dual, ambivalent nature – he can happily submit to society and convention for a time, only to emerge committed to rugged individualism, or vice-versa.
