These highly sensitive men are by the same token, perceptive, intuitive and particularly emotional, as they are heavily influenced by the number 2. Even so, they successfully manage to keep their volatile emotions under control, to the point of appearing calm and reserved. Nevertheless, they are characterized by a certain dualism, between sociability, extraversion and altruism (more pronounced if they were born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st or 30th, in March or December, or if they have a Life Path Number
of 3), and introversion and egocentricity (especially if they were born on the 4th, 7th, 13th, 16th, 22nd, 25th or 31st, in April or July, or if they have a Life Path Number
4 or 7). Indeed, on the one hand, they need other people - as much in order to feel that they exist as for the emotional exchanges and emulation that they crave, satisfying a certain narcissism. On the other hand, they also require time alone in order to recharge their batteries and maintain their privacy. Socially, they are eager to impress, but if they can't claim the first place, they may compensate by acting eccentric and exuberant, a sense of humor being one of their finer talents (especially if they were born on the 11th, or in February or November). Archimedes
are a curious mix of independence (notably mental: they reject accepted "truths" and prefer to think for themselves) and dependence (notably emotional), meaning that their development is determined - to a certain extent - by their environment. In childhood, they are inclined to be introverted. They can be shy and vulnerable, requiring attention, encouragement and comfort, but if the home environment is conducive, their original and innovative nature will be able to bloom. Without a doubt, their amazing memory is a great asset in their education, although they could need some extra motivation... While they are more or less tolerant and diplomatic, passion could lead them - without prior warning - onto the road to fanaticism. Archimedes
can be thin-skinned, rancorous and of somewhat nervous disposition, but by contrast, they have a profound understanding of friendship and would benefit enormously from a supportive platonic relationship.
