Bryan W. Simon seeks to make his inner wealth outwardly manifest and substantial.
The third person narrator observes that because Bryan W. Simon is typically self-centered and reluctant to team up with others, he may not be able to effectively accomplish tasks or goals without the assistance of others.
Simon becomes involved with social affairs, but resists any project he will be unable 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.
Bryan W. Simon struggles to get into natural harmony with the physical world and the limitations and restraints it places upon him. He tends to be idealistic, disconnected from practical considerations, and barely pays any attention to material things like food, money, his surroundings, and so on. He tends to be footloose and fancy-free, oblivious to the necessities of survival in the physical world, until his lack of material resources – an issue to which he usually grants no importance – becomes an emergency. This feeling of being out of touch with material things and the physical dimension of reality may sometimes lead him to see himself as unfit for this world. He may think he cannot attach himself to anything that would sustain his efforts at self-expression. However, his impractical nature offers many positive aspects. He sees life's possibilities as limitless. He is apt to develop his imagination or pursue a spiritual quest in order to transcend the material world.
