You are an independent thinker who believes in freedom and independence as the most basic values in life. You have abandoned the conventional and social norms of your class and adopted an innovative lifestyle. Your passionate convictions can sometimes conflict with your relationships, as you may be an uncompromising partner. You need to learn to recognize your own limitations and accept the responsibilities you have to other people, or you are likely to find yourself constantly embroiled in conflicting relationships. The roots of your somewhat extreme behavior likely lie in your relationship with your father or teachers in childhood and adolescence. For one reason or another, you may have rejected the paternal image or refused to identify with your father, in the same way as you now refuse to adopt any values related to convention, tradition, or widespread usage. In every important life decision you make as an adult, you are forced to rely on yourself to elaborate the appropriate behavior, and the limits you must impose on your desires in relation to reality and the law.

You have a romantic imagination, soaring with idealism, dreams, and poetry. You are emotive and hypersensitive, making you especially vulnerable emotionally, since you are sometimes overwhelmed by your feelings and affects. Although you seek an ideal soulmate, a partner with whom you could maintain blissful, smooth relations, you are sometimes met with disillusionment. Because your rather excessive sensitivity and your need to merge with the other are deep and powerful enough, they can submerge your judgment and discernment, so you sometimes form extremely intense bonds too quickly with individuals who are not appropriate partners in many ways.
When you meet someone, you fall under the enchantment of your dream of ideal love and cannot keep yourself from delighting in a reverie of future romance, placing the other on a pedestal. Early on in the relationship, you yield to another of your characteristic urges and lose yourself in the individual who is so dear to you, melding with them, only to awaken one morning and find yourself as if in the arms of a stranger, greatly astounded and disappointed. Actually, your psyche is constructed in such a way as to make your sensitivity a function of the environment, in many cases; it follows the flow of momentary emotions and impressions. Before you take on any major commitments, you should make a conscious effort to evaluate the relationship realistically, and see whether the person really reciprocates your intense love, for you may merely be in love with the mirage of an ideal partner. Your tendency to believe in your illusions may mark you as an easy prey for people with bad intentions. It would be a good idea for you to find a different object for your affections, or a form of sublimation, because you tend to be so disappointed by your great emotional investments.
The delicacy and subtlety of your imagination procure artistic refinement for you, and you love the arts, music, and literature, which could all be good sources of emotional involvement and fulfillment.

Because he sometimes feels vulnerable emotionally, Brian 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 Brian 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, Brian 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 Brian's emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, Brian is likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.

He enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuse himself with witty remarks, satire, and controversy. If he learned to control his flow of words and elaborate his thoughts more, he could make a talented communicator. Because Brian is often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform his ideas, he is sometimes misunderstood. He 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 Brian were to succeed in disciplining his mind somewhat, he would have innumerable opportunities to apply his communications skills to a great career. However, he would do well to be careful of his nerves.
You are a deep thinker with a penetrating intelligence. However, your thought processes tend to be slow due to some failure or humiliation during your formative years.

As a result, you are particularly suited to the study of mathematics, architecture, engineering, or perhaps even politics.

You will also have to learn to conquer your impatience, because you tend to waste time agonizing over deadlines and schedules. Moreover, a lack of self-confidence could cause you to be fairly conventional and respectful of time-honored ways. Instead, you should find the courage to question your convictions.
