What does Bryant Stith’s psychology tell us about them?

Bryant Stith 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.

You have a difficult time establishing a personal identity. Perhaps your father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during your childhood, which deprived you of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because you 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, you were forced to protect yourself against negative influences and find your own system in order to grow and feel secure. Although this system was quite useful to you as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with your evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber your mind or inhibit your developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for you to assert yourself, and you tend to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because your authoritarian urges are mainly directed at yourself rather than others, you sometimes feel guilty about your behavior. You judge yourself severely, and sometimes punishes yourself by setting difficult tasks for yourself. Gradually, you should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.

Bryant Stith's 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 sometimes 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, might also annoy him. He could find it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.

You are an imposing figure, both in stature and in your demeanor. You are sober and rather reserved and may even strike people as harsh and austere at times. Perhaps you were raised in an atmosphere of rigor and sobriety, and, as a result, grew up very fast. You have acquired a spirit of self-sufficiency, tend to be rather uncompromising, and have a touchy sense of your personal dignity and worth. It is almost as though you were fighting an inner battle with your father or a father figure. The psychological models you received from your father or a father figure as a result of your interaction and your own interaction with authority may not have played a major role in shaping your relationships with the outer world and society. You may thus have been forced to compensate for this lack with individual determination. As a result, although you are skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, a lack of self-confidence and personal assurance sometimes makes you timid and hesitant. You sometimes feel as though you are only masquerading as a respectable, sober adult. You tend to be far too critical of yourself and rarely feel satisfied that you are living up to your ideal. These unnecessary guilt feelings may lead you to turn down the prominent career positions for which you are fully qualified. You are aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who know how to be patient and persistent, like you.

The obstacles and hindrances reality places on Bryant Stith's path to personal and social development tend to depress him. He sometimes broods bitterly about the frustrations to his self-fulfillment and might have a fairly pessimistic vision of society and its possibilities.

Bryant Stith is pragmatic and realistic. He evaluates people and things according to practical, common-sense criteria instead of abstract concepts. A sensualist and lover of luxury, he has a penchant for material comfort and takes great joy in physical pleasures. In relation to others, socially and privately, he likes to build stable relationships and is not especially fond of change. His warmth gives him a great deal of ease when meeting people, as clients (for business purposes), but his close relations also benefit from this affection and his ability to express his feelings naturally and openly.

Bryant Stith is an expansive, affable, and communicative associate. Indeed, some people find him generous almost to a fault! He gives of himself and his resources unstintingly. Paradoxically, there are times when he is self-focused. He reacts instinctively, without taking the trouble to analyze a given situation, and is prone to misjudge. As a result, his everyday life may be riddled with a whole variety of practical problems. Indeed, he senses a conflict between his social life and his family and will sometimes find it hard to fulfill himself in both spheres at the same time. His attitude toward his private life may inhibit his ambitions for social or career expansion; at worst, society (the law) may impinge on his private life. He should be careful not to project his personal problems onto his partner. If, instead, the two of them analyzed the problem, they might be able to find opportunities to resolve it together.

Although Bryant Stith's demeanor is cool and distant, he is extremely sensitive. In some cases, his rather austere and rigid behavior and his refusal to yield too readily to sentimentality discourage others from being too demonstrative of their tenderness and affection. He has spells of melancholy in which he does not feel worthy of being loved and tends to forbid himself emotional fulfillment. An austere or somewhat traumatic childhood experience may be the source of this behavior. He may have suffered rejection in his infancy, and, as a result, lacked the parental love which is essential to the cohesion of a personality and identity. In order to feel secure, and to protect himself from ever suffering rejection or abandonment again, he withdrew into himself and developed his aloofness as a defense mechanism. When he finally lets down his defenses and allows himself to express his feelings, he tends to become impassioned and exalted. He is fairly introverted and egocentric and has a powerful sense of his own identity.

Although Bryant Stith is pragmatic and relatively realistic, he is sometimes tormented by an insidious feeling of insecurity which interferes with his ability to grasp reality. Change unnerves him, and at certain times, he tends to cling to old-fashioned customs or lifestyles. Insecurities might cause him to repress his emotional needs.

Bryant Stith's attractions are usually immediate and intense. They rise quickly to fever pitch. The story of these passions is often dramatic to excess, combining all the plot elements of a classic love tragedy: jealousy, possessiveness, agony as an erotic stimulant, etc.

Bryant Stith 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, he is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.

Bryant Stith glows with a youthful simplicity and dewy freshness that make him very endearing. Quite sensitive to physical attraction, he loves blithely and lustily. Because he needs to feel free and independent, a possessive partner would be a bad match for him. Even when committed, he will cling to his taste for freedom, refusing monotony.

Bryant Stith thrives on difficult or even lethal passions. He might have a very strong sex drive and a penchant for suffering as a redeeming value. His tumultuous love life, a battle of leviathans, may sometimes escape from its bounds or generate disagreements which may disrupt his career. However, his powerful impulses and drive could be channeled into a creative, artistic or spiritual direction.

You are hypersensitive and tend to relive the anxieties, apprehensions, and romantic absolutes of your first love relationships, which occurred around the ages of 13-14 years or 20-21 years. You are exquisitely sensitive, but almost completely barricaded behind a layer of aloofness. You will not settle for anything less than eternal commitment, total harmony, and absolute loyalty. You are sometimes presumed to be cold, even by those close to her. You usually hide your emotional reactions or do not even allow them to reach the level of your consciousness, in an effort to protect your sensitivity, which you see as your weak point. You are fairly vulnerable, even in the intimacy of a stable and established relationship. Usually, you will disguise your strong feelings as a kind of possessiveness or even jealousy. Certain misfortunes may arouse a negative emotional state inside you, and you feel unworthy of the love which is lavished on you. This psychological prohibition which rules over all of your desires and affects should loosen with the passage of time; likewise, your fear of approaching the other will diminish. As a result, the second part of your romantic life will be more rewarding. In any case, if you want to experience a harmonious love relationship and gratify yourself emotionally, the defense mechanisms you have elaborated to make yourself inaccessible to others will have to be dismantled.

Bryant Stith considers the input from his subjectivity and emotions as a source of inspiration which he tries to tune out to gain a greater understanding of the essence of knowledge. As a result, regardless of his field of study, he tries to obtain perspective. He will elaborate a thought based on fairly cold, abstract logic, supported by sober, concise, and immaculate reasoning. His choice areas of study could be mathematics, philosophy, legislation, or political science. Ideologies, theories, and any other system of reasoning could be “food for thought” for him.

Bryant Stith tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. His thoughts are usually structured, and his reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.

In relations with other people, Bryant Stith's behavior is usually kind and benevolent. He exerts a certain charm, knows how to speak persuasively and convincingly, and is adept at smoothing the asperities of what he has to say when it is necessary. This aspect of his personality is a great advantage to him socially; however, in situations where he must either compete or deal with direct conflict and hostility, he may be somewhat at a loss for how to behave. He has an undeniable gift for oratory which could be applied to a communications-related occupation or to artistic expression (as a stage or screen actor). Writing and dance, two other arts which associate expression and movement, might also be fields in which he would excel.
