Bryce Alford is very vigorous and energetic. He has an immense need to assert his individuality. Bryce's attitudes and actions are actually motivated by an unconscious desire for power.

Because Bryce has very little control over his energy and impulses, he sometimes injures himself bodily or starts arguments without really having meant to do so. Bryce has a short temper and would do well to learn to control his recklessness. This exposes him to a great deal of unnecessary conflict and adversity.

He has thrown off what he perceives as the burdens of the convention and customs of his social class and adopted an innovative lifestyle.

He should learn to recognize his own limitations and accept the responsibilities he has to other people or he is liable to find himself continually embroiled in conflicting relationships.
Bryce Alford is an extremely sensitive and receptive person who often lives in osmosis with his surroundings. His individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of emotions and impressions which are continually washing over him, and he often finds it difficult to communicate his feelings to other people. This tide of emotion is a source of inspiration and intuition, but due to his lack of inner structure and organization, it is difficult for him to grasp the essence of his dreams and share them with other people. Bryce is not at all combative, and this hinders his efforts to fit into society and assert himself productively. His tendency to prefer fantasy to reality and his refusal to abandon his unattainable dreams is a psychological trap he has fallen into without realizing it. Bryce must understand that by escaping from his obligations and commitments, he only increases the feelings of guilt and incompetence which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once Bryce free himself from this pernicious process, he has a great deal of potential for fulfilling himself in the outer world, either by devoting himself to the community or by cultivating his considerable artistic talents.

Bryce Alford is hypersensitive and tends to relive the anxieties, apprehensions, and romantic absolutes of his first love relationships, which occurred around the ages of 13-14 years or 20-21 years. He is exquisitely sensitive, but almost completely barricaded behind a layer of aloofness. He will not settle for anything less than eternal commitment, total harmony, and absolute loyalty. He is sometimes presumed to be cold, even by those close to him. He usually hides his emotional reactions or does not even allow them to reach the level of his consciousness, in an effort to protect his sensitivity, which he sees as his weak point. He is fairly vulnerable, even in the intimacy of a stable and established relationship. Usually, he will disguise his strong feelings as a kind of possessiveness or even jealousy. Certain misfortunes may arouse a negative emotional state inside him, and he feels unworthy of the love which is lavished on him. This psychological prohibition which rules over all of his desires and affects should loosen with the passage of time; likewise, his fear of approaching the other will diminish. As a result, the second part of his romantic life will be more rewarding.
