Buck McKeon strives to maintain a calm, collected demeanor; he practices restraining his emotions and controlling them. Although it is not an easy task, he wants to be able to endure stress with patience, endurance, and stamina. More than anyone else, he is aware of the importance of a strong foundation in order to take effective action.
You were born into a difficult family situation. You may have lacked a father figure, or one who was emotionally present and helpful in structuring your personality. As a result, you developed a psychological defense mechanism-a paternal complex-in order to protect yourself. This system was very useful to you as a child, but it has now settled into a groove which interferes with your growth. You use psychological defense mechanisms, such as authoritarian urges, to protect yourself, but they are mostly directed at yourself. You also have difficulty judging yourself fairly, and you punish yourself by setting hard tasks for yourself. Gradually, you should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence without relying on defense mechanisms.
Buck McKeon'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 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 seldom 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.
Insecurities can cause Buck McKeon to crave order in his life and to prefer to do things according to a predetermined plan. Unfortunately, because his logic and vision tend to be somewhat short-sighted, it requires a great effort for him to adapt to a situation. He is rigid, might struggle to make friends easily, and is sometimes wary of relations with those he is most attracted to. He is a gifted worrywart.
Buck McKeon enjoys sharing and has a constant need for contact with other people. He tends to be free and uninhibited in his relations with other people, rarely allowing himself to be influenced by convention or prevailing opinion; he associates with whomever he pleases.

He would also be likely to succeed in any activity where the work required a multidisciplinary approach: teaching, advertising, politics, etc.
Buck McKeon is sensitive and receptive and also tends to live in osmosis with his surroundings. His individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations 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. He 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. He 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 he 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.
Buck McKeon is hypersensitive to the mood in his surroundings. He is unconsciously able to perceive the parapsychic signals or aura people give off, in addition to their words. As a result, he is extremely compassionate and ready to devote himself to their well-being. His imagination has formulated the dream of an ideal life, and he sometimes feels ill-equipped for the realities of this existence. He tends to dodge difficult situations. With his partner, Buck seeks fusion.
Buck McKeon often finds life challenging and emotive. He cringes from the harsh realities of life and passively hopes for a better future. However, by escaping into his dreams, he may be exposed to adversity in both his social and private life.
Because you were born with the innate ability to be yourself, 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, and you were able to forge a strong, original personality and philosophy. Your 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.
Buck McKeon was sensitive and imaginative, which sometimes made it difficult for him to tell dreams from reality. Although his bubbling imagination provided an abundant source of inspiration for spiritual evolution, it tended to be less helpful and positive when it came to matters that concerned his self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient in a relationship. In Buck's opinion, people were always either perfect or flawed, and he tended to see others the way he wanted them to be rather than the way they really were.

Distrustful of his emotional urges and somewhat wary of his feelings, he tries to rid himself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Buck McKeon is sensitive but plagued by self-doubt, torn between dreams and reality, between his nearly mystical need for love and the practical aspect of things. He is timid and rather inhibited, so he is generally careful to confine himself to the sidelines. As a result, many chances could pass him by. If a virile mate took him under their wing, he would thrive. Otherwise, he might find happiness with someone as sensitive and timid as himself, who knows how to understand him in all his complexity.
Despite your reserved and withdrawn demeanor, Buck McKeon tends to attract somewhat excessive partners who may make his emotional life a bit wild and difficult. This is why Buck may fall in love with a jealous, possessive person who will probably have a great influence on him.
Buck McKeon has the fiery, importunate nature of a fervent lover. Indeed, affairs of the heart are one of his main purposes in life. His personal charm and magnetism give him nearly irresistible powers of seduction, and nearly every one of his well-aimed attempts at conquest leads to the fulfillment and satisfaction of his desires. Due to his impulsiveness and impatience to initiate new encounters, his approach to potential partners may sometimes lack delicacy.
You are a complex individual, full of contradictions. Because you sometimes feel vulnerable emotionally, you try to control not only your own feelings and urges, but may also strive to manipulate those of your partners. You aspire to a profound and enduring spiritual unity, but at the same time, the idea of abandoning yourself and yielding to the other terrifies you. This anguish may be a source of rather extreme behavior patterns and a somewhat self-focused attitude which could damage the relationship. Because you are guarded and somewhat secretive, you tend to be suspicious and are especially uneasy about spontaneous intimacy, although you are fascinated by sexuality. Within the privacy of the couple, you will not express your feelings unless you are 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 your emotional and sexual functioning. As a result, you are likely to be attracted by stormy and complicated relationships.

Buck McKeon 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, he 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. He enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses himself with witty remarks, satire, and controversy. If he learned to control his flow of words better and elaborate his thoughts more, he might make a talented communicator. Because he 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 he 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.
