Bol Bol is patient. He is fond of routine, ritual, and any other events or ceremonies which mark the passage of time and the seasons. He tries to be as pragmatic as possible and unconsciously senses that his relationship with material things will be the best foundation for his self-development and individuation. As a result, he is attached to his possessions and will make every effort to cling to them.
Bol Bol has a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding his identity. Perhaps his father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during his childhood, which deprived him of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because he might have lacked a particular sense of security which could be provided by a paternal presence, as well as the examples of behavior to follow in confronting the difficulties inherent in every life, Bol Bol was forced to protect himself against negative influences and find his own system in order to grow and feel secure. Although this system was quite useful to him as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with his evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber his mind or inhibit his developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for him to assert himself, and he tends to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because his authoritarian urges are mainly directed at himself rather than others, he sometimes feels guilty about his behavior. He judges himself severely, and sometimes punishes himself by setting difficult tasks for himself. Gradually, Bol Bol should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
His personality and behavior are liable to be disrupted by a contradiction between the masculine and feminine archetypes ruling his psyche. Because his sensitivity is in conflict with his determination, his attitude and performance may be moody, fluctuating, and uncertain. Usually, he has the feeling he has to make superhuman efforts to succeed in assuaging his yearnings and fulfilling his ambitions. His unconscious, sensitive side often disapproves of his conscious endeavors and stealthily works to defeat them, causing crucial omissions, mistakes, and gaps which effectively sabotage his plans. In his relationships, the images he builds up and projects on the other are contradictory. As a result, any bond, even if it is pleasant and positive, also grates on his nerves. He finds it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
Bol Bol is a courageous and resilient individual. His strength of character allows him to accomplish even the most difficult tasks, and his impulsiveness is often helpful in reaching his goals. His leadership skills are often put to creative and constructive use, helping to bring about positive change.
Bol Bol is a freedom- and independence-oriented person. He strives to maintain his privacy and avoid any deep involvement in relationships. As a result, he is skittish when it comes to getting close to anyone. He is very socially-minded, but also very idealistic. He sees the future with great optimism, and is eager to help make it a better place.
Bol Bol is a lively, agile, and sensitive individual. However, he may not always use his intellect effectively, and may be confused or irrational in some situations. Although he enjoys playing with words, ideas, and concepts, his thought sometimes lacks discipline and structure. He is fairly preoccupied with details and may tend to waste his nervous and mental energy in futile verbal outpourings. Additionally, his feelings sometimes blur his objective vision of phenomena and people, which may cause him to make errors in judgment.
Bol Bol is a cheerful, expansive, pleasant associate to have. He is extremely generous (sometimes to a fault!) and gives of himself and his belongings unstintingly. This positive psychological outlook is the result of a happy childhood and especially an extremely beneficial maternal influence in infancy. He is quite likely to be a professional success; his vision of the world is perfectly adapted to prevailing opinion, and his urges and desires for personal expansion usually elicit a positive reaction from society. By old age, his good reputation and prominence may have earned him fame.
Bol Bol tries his best to show his love for his partner in the most harmonious way possible. Indeed, he has an innate sense of harmony and strives for a love relationship characterized by balance and perfection. He tends to idealize both his partner and the institution of marriage. Any disillusionment he encounters in the pursuit of his ideal may be experienced as a frustration. He does not always ply his powers of seduction skillfully.
Bol Bol was born with an emotional function that expresses itself in a direct and fairly impulsive way. He enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with his gaze riveted on the future, Bol Bol is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Bol Bol is a half angel, half demon who is attracted to troubled and complicated individuals. His taste for independence and his need for unconventional personal development are betrayed by the power and compulsion of his instincts. As a result, he falls in love when his least expects it, with the type of person he is usually least attracted to… or who is unavailable. He is unlikely to institutionalize his commitments with marriage.
A gentle and loving person, hurt by the indifference of their loved one or by the breakdown of a relationship, it could be challenging for them to find their ideal partner. But they would find a solitary or single life absolutely unbearable. On the other hand, their willingness to compromise may cause them to end up with a partner who is too austere or too serious and who smothers their sensitivity.
Bol Bol has an ardent and amorous character, and 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. Psychologically, his emotion contributes positively and efficiently to his evolution. From another standpoint, his acute sensitivity predisposes him to original and subtle tastes; he is so receptive to beauty and attached to the concepts of truth and balance that they may all combine to yield remarkable creative potential.
Bol Bol is a complex individual, full of contradictions. Because he sometimes feels vulnerable emotionally, Bol Bol tries to control not only his own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of his partners. He aspires to a profound and enduring spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning himself and yielding to the other terrifies him. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because Bol Bol is guarded and somewhat secretive, he tends to be suspicious and is especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although he is fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, Bol Bol will not express his feelings unless he is subject to some tension. Life may be peppered with frequent crises and feuds, arguments and spats which usually act as erotic provocation. This derivation of eroticism from anxiety tends to be one of the fundamental characteristics of Bol Bol’s emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, he is likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.
Bol Bol is curious, skeptical, and pragmatic. He has a shrewd, inquisitorial mind. He always tries to detect the hidden mechanisms and processes behind the phenomena he observes. As a result, he has developed an ability to detect the truth behind appearances and the cause behind the effect. Although this way of thinking is based on a certain logic, and there is evidence of structure and cohesion in his deductive approach, it is not always purely intellectual. Indeed, its sources lie in a certain empiricism, in facts which have been experienced, so it is open to improvement. For this reason, its fields of application are highly diverse, although research in the hard sciences, psychology, and metaphysics seem to be the best career choices.
Bol Bol thinks carefully before speaking, preferring to mull things over before coming to a decision. He is more introverted than most and looks to his own thoughts and experiences for guidance. Because he is hesitant to rely on traditional methods of thought, his opinions tend to be highly personal.
Bol Bol’s intellectual faculties and wit are sometimes slowed down because he is turned inward. Because he tends to be oriented toward himself, he rarely tries to communicate with others for the simple pleasure of doing so. Indeed, he sometimes feels misunderstood. Moreover, it seems difficult for him to express the complexity of his inner perceptions.
