Bobby Jones’ psyche follows an extroverted thrust. He attempts to embody and actualize his ideas and the archetypes he identifies with in his objective life.
Bobby Jones was reluctant to team up with other people. Because he was an individualist, he attempted to free himself from any outside influence and leave his personal imprint on the world around him. Often, due to his lack of perspective in relation to other people, he rebuffed their help and cooperation on projects. It was only by working and acting independently that he could accomplish his goals and ambitions.
Although Bobby Jones may contribute to important social causes or collective ideals, he prefers to maintain his individual identity. For this reason, although he may become personally involved in social affairs, he is likely to resist any project he will not be able to lead himself, according to his own individual direction. He identifies himself with an activity with social implications and attempts to know himself through this activity.
Bobby Jones has two fundamentally opposed psychological tendencies that rule his psyche. In his case, dynamic functions and a capacity to adapt to reality predominate over mental and emotional principles. Endowed with the idealism and energy of one element, and the practical resources and sensuality of the other, his personality is deeply rooted in reality while retaining a remarkable ability to set high goals and accomplish them. A deficit in the other psychological functions (thought and emotion) tends to blunt Bobby’s approach to life. If he struggles to get in touch with his deepest emotions, he might have a somewhat cold, crude vision of the world.
Although you may not necessarily notice the fact about yourself because you are so strongly engaged in actions, feelings, or material concerns, you sometimes lack sound judgment. This impairment arises from a difficulty in obtaining perspective on yourself and your life. You may be puzzled by your troubled relations with others. You must make an effort to detach yourself from your personal reaction and observe it from an objective, more distant standpoint. If not, you are likely to find yourself under stress or pressure because you did not give enough prior thought to tactics and strategy. You may also experience dissatisfaction in your intimate relationships because you might struggle to get in sync with others. You give little time or respect to anyone you see as too “intellectual,” because you resist adapting to new ideas and viewpoints. In fact, an idea that rubs you the wrong way mentally and/or emotionally may elicit an explosive reaction. Self-analysis can be challenging for you and you tend to refuse to develop a solid, permanent idea of yourself – and this plays a lot of tricks on you.
You are not insensitive, but you are baffled by your own emotions. You see the emotional world as a foreign terrain, perhaps fraught with hidden dangers. Becoming familiar with it would present more drawbacks than advantages. As a result, you may appear to be hard or aloof. You might struggle to establish a rewarding relationship, as you seek special individuals to bond with. If you were able to accept and understand your own emotions, you would have an easier time grappling with other people’s feelings. You have a strong desire for emotional independence, and might have trouble seeing other people’s emotional needs. You might even be the first to deny that such needs are real. As a result, your dependency on others is unconscious. Because it is seen as such a threat, it is repressed. Actually, although you offer conscious resistance to anyone who tries to lure you out of your emotional bubble, you are always making timid, half-conscious forays into the world of feelings, because your loneliness and fear are so unbearable.
