Adrien Broner is a fiery, emotional creature. As a result of the preponderance of emotion, sensation, and feeling in his psychological make-up, he has acquired a deep sense of his individuality and uniqueness. He sometimes feels “different” – set apart from others. In order to justify this idea of himself, he attempts to behave differently, to impress the crowd, and the product of his efforts is usually rather grandiose and exaggerated.
It’s a self-perpetuating bind, because his impressive deeds usually earn recognition for him, and reinforce his self-assurance and his certainty that he does indeed stand head and shoulders above the rest. He sometimes makes an attempt to bluff and show off with an emotional display. He likes to take risks and give people advice. Nevertheless, at the basis of his conduct, there is a feeling of social anxiety, which is probably unconscious or unconfessed. He may fear being absorbed or enslaved by society.
The positive side of this unconscious anxiety is that it drives him to create, to counteract the deeply felt effects of time and the masses on his ego. By creating something, he can make his own individual mark on the world; he can organize it to reflect his own image, instead of allowing himself to be submerged by it. The preceding comments about creating the world in your own image are strong indications that he seeks to identify with his superego. The difference between his ideal of himself and the individual he knows himself to be in truth, measured in terms of his social recognition or the recognition of his creations (children, works of art, etc.), will determine his state of mind. It is therefore important for him to make these images match to a certain extent, to reduce the gap as much as possible.
The psychological dynamic described earlier explains many of the pluses and minuses in his personality. His dignity and self-assurance may border on vanity; his strong instinct and ambition combined with his somewhat exaggerated individualism incline him to be self-focused. He may be proud, but he is also courageous, determined, and generous. He has the skills of an educator or an artist; moreover, he is mysteriously lucky.
Adrien Broner has a personality which may seem somewhat aloof, withdrawn, and introspective. He is not inclined to submit to anyone’s influence, and leads the independent, solitary life of the individualist. Sometimes skeptical (if not pessimistic) and resigned, he is still shrewd and objective in his insights and judgments. He has a fairly severe, “no-frills” vision of life, and only the pure, bare essence really matters to him. Impatient and sometimes restless, he sometimes chafes under the limits and restraints of social realities and convention. Fairly rebellious by nature, he sees himself as striving for freedom from the bonds of earthly existence, which he finds confining. His personal stability tends to be founded on enduring values – philosophical or scientific facts in relation to spiritual values. Sometimes he seems detached and weary, or disillusioned, and he does not appreciate the social whirl. He does not readily express his feelings and emotions, but deep inside, he has great sensitivity. His sense of time, a true instinct, is very important. It rules and coordinates all of his activities.
Adrien Broner has high social aspirations. He believes that by gaining total control of his intellect, feelings, and instincts, he can achieve them.
Adrien Broner has a strong personality; he is sometimes a little self-centered. His fate is in his own hands!
At the time of Adrien Broner’s birth, his rising sign was located in Capricorn (the Goat), while the sun was passing through the sign of Leo (the Lion). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide his personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of his character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:
Narcissism – Need for security – Determination – Inhibition – Pride and self-assurance – Application – Superiority – Methodical mind – Brilliance – Forethought – Generosity – Loyalty – Optimism.
Adrien Broner’s energetic, proud, and self-admiring side engages his guileful, withdrawn, calculating side either in conflict or in cooperation, depending on the circumstances.
Adrien Broner’s authority and determination often monopolize his energy, at the expense of his emotions. Or he may find himself distracted from pursuing his goals by the whisperings of his heart. By middle age, however, he should reach a balance which gives liberal expression to all his gifts. Control over his emotions, pride, and passions should then give him access to the highest realms of self-realization.
Born in the seven to ten days after the full moon rose, Adrien Broner is of the “last quarter” lunar type. As a result, his personality is fairly independent and self-sufficient. His ideas are original and often bold, but, to his dismay, do not often garner a majority of followers.
His sense of humor is his best communications tool, but he often switches to a more severe tone which breaks his charm over his audience, and his methods do not always please the masses.
His lack of flexibility hinders his strategies and projects, and he would gain by developing his sense of diplomacy and tact. Although he is not unduly attached to success, because he is so used to being ahead of his time, his failures take a psychological toll on him. Because each setback wears him down a little more, he should try to avoid further disappointments by conforming to contemporary reality a little more closely.
