What does Bret Easton Ellis’s psychology tell us about them?

Bret Easton Ellis is fairly individualistic. Although he sometimes mingle with groups for their competitive atmosphere, he will rarely join in them wholeheartedly, preferring to work on his own projects independently. A lack of confidence in himself may sometimes create challenges in relationships. His lack of self-esteem may also sometimes inhibit the full expression of his generosity and love.

Bret Easton Ellis may be subject to mood swings, going from phases of frenzy combined with a feeling of omnipotence and exaltation to phases of apathy and inertia. During your “highs,” your behavior is vigorous and dynamic, but it is also likely to be somewhat excessive. These periods tend to be interspersed with “lows,” phases of sluggishness and inhibition, which compensate for your immense need to assert yourself as an individual. How can you find a way out of this vicious cycle which uses up so much of your energy? You would have to understand that the source of your attitudes and behavior is an unconscious desire for power. We suggest that you meditate upon power, skills, mastery, challenge, desire, and need, your brothers (or brother substitutes, such as friends, cousins, or classmates) – who are key figures – and your adversaries. This should enlighten you. Of course, once you have a clear awareness of your career ambitions and profound desires, you are sure to have plenty of energy to accomplish them.

Bret Easton Ellis has a profound and fertile inner life and a prolific imagination, but his energy resources are not always sufficient to follow through on and accomplish his multitude of dreams. He tends to live in osmosis with his environment, and effort and action take a heavy toll on him. Usually, he understands phenomena and events intuitively, without really making any effort; so he is not in the habit of disciplining or shaping his thought processes. Like his thoughts, his personality is rather amorphous and disorganized. As a result of this lack of structure, he may have some trouble asserting his individuality and making some personal contribution to society through his career. His tendency to shut out reality and dream impossible dreams, like his refusal of responsibility and duty, may be a source of some difficulty for him.

You are acutely aware of the mysteries of existence and the vastness of the void. You are sometimes disoriented and feel lost in an unknown force, and you often ignore the fleeting pleasures and pains of daily life. You are drawn to probe the depths of human experience, to explore the power of your instincts, and to find your true identity. This special consciousness is beyond the understanding of conventional schools of thought and can be a source of identity problems at the outset. It is difficult for you to recognize yourself in any models of social or narcissistic behavior, or to identify with any existing roles or attitudes. So you may find yourself asserting your own identity in a way that shocks or intrigues your contemporaries.

Bret Easton Ellis

Bret Easton Ellis has a sensitive and affectionate nature. He seeks tenderness and gentleness more than passion. His relationships with others are smooth and pleasant, and he has a natural sense of tact and social grace.

You were born with a quick and independent mind, so you quickly developed an original and independent identity. Your first taste of liberty may have led you to challenge the education and values you received from your family and class tradition. You were able to forge a strong, original personality and philosophy, which helped you to relationships are usually free of conflict, because you are able to reconcile your need for independence with your desire for affection. However, your partners should be open and lively people, able to keep pace with you in your rapid evolution. You have an inspired and extremely lively wit and a brisk interest in the future, technological progress, and new lifestyles. You would be especially successful in communications-related careers like journalism, film, TV, radio, and advertising. Although you are an individualist, you have a powerful desire to contribute to the evolution of society and better its development.

Bret Easton Ellis has a sensual and affectionate nature which is sensitive to physical attraction. This type of sensitivity, combined with his productive urges, may be expressed in an artistic form. As for his feelings, they are usually slow to take root. But once he is conquered by love, he forms a deep and lasting bond. Although he is loyal, he may also display a tendency to be somewhat possessive.

Bret Easton Ellis was born with an emotional function which is expressed 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, Bret is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.

Bret Easton Ellis is such a timid person that he maintains a cold and aloof exterior. He might be uncomfortable with himself and subject to irrational anxieties or fears. As a result, it is difficult for him to prove his other qualities like a sense of duty, perseverance, and an excellent sense of organization. He accepts his circumstances as his fate and is liable to limit himself to regretful self-denial, unless he throws himself into a career and becomes a shrewd businessperson. He is quite likely to marry someone he will dominate but whose gentleness will help him find self-fulfillment.

Bret Easton Ellis is a sentimental and romantic individual who is both sensual and alluring. After a number of romantic relationships in his youth, Bret will settle down with a partner who is tender and gentle and who can give Bret the security and comfort he longs for.

You are a cautious and reserved person, sometimes unwilling to open yourself up to others if you’re not sure of being accepted. You’ll always hang back a bit from your emotional impulses, parceling out your expressions of affection, because you’ve learned – sometimes at your expense – that even the most harmonious relationships require some compromise. For you, “good fences make good neighbors,” and well-marked boundaries can prevent future suffering. Thus, even when you’re in love, you remain fairly circumspect. When you find yourself attracted to a partner, you privately engage in a careful analysis of their personality and life story, endeavoring to know them profoundly, to see whether you’re likely to be able to share your life and future with them. As a result of your sensitivity, you have a profound affinity for all of the arts. Music, literature, painting, and graphic arts are likely to enrich your existence and make it pleasant. You could progress in any career in which balance, order, and practicality predominate.

Bret Easton Ellis has a rather irrational mind and a voracious intellect, which is usually subject to the rule of his prolific imagination. Although he is likely to have flashes of intuition which may prove to be correct, his thought processes are sometimes messy and confused. His mind, which is oriented in many different directions at the same time, is ruled by his emotions and feelings. In tune with psychic and parapsychic phenomena, his thinking requires only the adjunct of structure to rise from the level of a blurry, uncertain, undifferentiated mass to that of a really significant vision with a grip on the real world.

Bret Easton Ellis expresses his thoughts and ideas in direct, spontaneous outbursts. He is fairly extroverted and eager to discover and understand the outer world. An idealist, he looks forward to a bright future but is sometimes subjective and reckless.

Bret Easton Ellis has a lively and agile spirit. He is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences without either dogmatism or prejudice. As a result of the liveliness of his mind, Bret Easton Ellis tends to have an opinion on every subject, but he does not always have the patience or perspective necessary to examine a subject and gain in-depth knowledge of it. Bret Easton Ellis enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses himself with witty remarks, satire, and controversy. If Bret Easton Ellis learned to control his flow of words better and elaborate his thoughts more, he might make a talented communicator. Because Bret Easton Ellis is often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform his ideas, he is sometimes misunderstood. Bret Easton Ellis is often blind to the rashness of his judgments and convinced they are well-founded and objective, which sometimes irritates the people around him. If Bret Easton Ellis were to succeed in disciplining his mind somewhat, he would have innumerable opportunities to apply his communications skills to a great career. However, Bret Easton Ellis would do well to be careful of his nerves.

You have a very strong interest in expression and communication. You can’t survive without letting your thoughts out and speaking to other people. You love being able to persuade, capture the attention of an audience, and move them with your words. Especially attracted to anything new and original, you quickly understand the value of the latest technology or philosophy, no matter how complex it may be and have a knack for explaining it to the uninitiated and popularizing it. Because you are fairly high-strung, you may have trouble concentrating on a single subject for very long, unless it’s something that interests you intellectually. You may have to make some effort to overcome this inconsistency. Your open-mindedness gives you creativity, which is a valuable commodity in many careers: teaching, communications, advertising, etc. Regardless of the career you choose, your personal development will involve intellectual activity and progress.

Bret Easton Ellis has a great deal of intuition but sometimes has problems organizing his thought processes and making an intellectual commitment. The concepts of boundary and structure are inimical to his mind, which is open and all-encompassing, premonitory, and web-like. His thoughts may be verbally indeterminate, vague, and ill defined. He tends to understand or sense things globally, without always noticing their component parts. Usually, he can’t see the trees for the forest. In daily life, although his perceptions are lively and subtle, he may display a kind of absent-mindedness, out of a fear of annoying people with his shrewdness or of fighting to assert himself. His imagination sometimes escapes from the confines of logic, cringing from a confrontation with reality. This unwillingness to face the real world may cause relationship or career challenges.
