Bob Lilly was patient. He was fond of routine, ritual, and any other events or ceremonies which marked the passage of time and the seasons. He tried to be as pragmatic as possible and unconsciously sensed that his relationship with material things would be the best foundation for his self-development and individuation. As a result, he was attached to his possessions and would make every effort to cling to them.
Bob Lilly is vigorous and energetic, with a need to assert his individuality and power. His attitudes and actions are motivated by an unconscious desire for power, which incites him to rush into action despite the frequent threat of risk and danger. Because he has very little control over his energy and impulses, he sometimes injures himself bodily or starts arguments without really meaning to do so. He has a short temper and would do well to learn to control his recklessness, which exposes him to a great deal of unnecessary conflict and adversity. He is also likely to start projects which are not really appropriate to him, only to be forced to quit soon after. Before he makes any important decision, he must learn to stop and ask himself if what he is about to do is really positive for him.
Bob Lilly has a great potential for creative, constructive accomplishments; however, it is sometimes difficult for him to gain access to this part of himself. He is confident in himself and life but may tend to be nonchalant. He sometimes needs a little stimulation to get himself rolling and take some initiative. His optimism and inner certainty do not always drive him to give his utmost efforts to achieve a goal. The communications skills he possesses are an advantage as well as a handicap. He makes use of his theatrical gifts, convincing eloquence, and ability to listen. The best careers for him would be teaching, communications, philosophy, the legal profession, theater, and public relations.
Bob Lilly was raised in an austere environment and received a lot of psychological models from his father. He was determined and hardworking, but lacked self-confidence.

He was patient and persistent, and time rewarded him for it.

The faraway appeals to him, and travel is likely to be an important aspect of his life.

This positive psychological outlook is the result of a happy childhood and especially an extremely beneficial maternal influence in infancy.

By old age, his good reputation and prominence may have earned him fame.

Bob Lilly has had more than his fair share of heartache in his relationships. Gentle and tender, he is particularly attracted to cold and austere people who neglect him and don’t understand his sensitive nature.

Maturity should help him to break the unhealthy pattern of failure, misunderstanding, and masochism that characterized his early romantic relationships.
Bob Lilly has an ardent and amorous character. His relationships with the other sex are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, he is often more in love with the idea of love than with his partners. As a result, his love life may be subject to some instability. He is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate him. Love is often a matter of luck with him. Even when a relationship falls apart, he does not see the experience as a failure or a tragedy; instead, he seems to learn valuable lessons from his mistakes.
