Consciousness and The Ideal of Self:
Marcus Dobre is determined to obtain a superlative grip on his emotional urges; he practices holding back his impulses and controlling them. Although it is not an easy apprenticeship, he wants to be able to bear strain with patience, endurance, and stamina. More than anyone else, he is aware of the need for a solid and stable foundation as a prerequisite to any effective action.
Marcus Dobre’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.
Marcus Dobre is extremely vigorous and energetic and has an immense need to assert his individuality. His attitudes and actions are actually motivated by an unconscious desire for power. They puzzle the people close to him, who cannot understand whether his behavior is the result of pure selfishness or merely of an excess of energy. Marcus is lively, alert, and determined, but he is too easily distracted from goals by futile competition or opportunities to exhibit his power. Marcus has a short temper and must learn to control his impulsiveness, which might expose him to a great deal of unnecessary conflict.
Marcus Dobre is a free thinker and individualist who is convinced that his most precious basic values are freedom and independence. He has thrown off what he perceives as the burden of the convention and customs of his social class and adopted an innovative lifestyle. His passionate convictions, bordering on proselytism, sometimes trouble his relationships, as he may be an uncompromising partner. 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.
Marcus Dobre is extremely sensitive and receptive and 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 frees 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.

Adaptation and Sensitivity:
Mild and sensitive, Marcus Dobre is deeply human. He is sociable and sincerely devoted to others. His mother or a mother-figure had a strong influence on his psyche, and his childhood was an important time in his life. He still identifies with vivid childhood memories; they are the basis for his reveries, for his extreme sensitivity, and for habits which he may be slow to break. However, he will thrive in the shelter of a family setting, soothed by the presence of a spouse and children. He is fond of security and routine; being somewhat impressionable and anxious, he may have trouble adjusting to situations which are unfamiliar.

Although he enjoys playing with words, ideas, and concepts, his thought sometimes lacks discipline and structure.

Marcus Dobre 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 are 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, he analyzes the problem together, he could find opportunities to resolve it together.

In a relationship, he is extremely romantic and does not always see others the way they really are.
Love and Sensuality:

A romantic as well as an idealist, he sometimes lacks discernment in the choice of his partners. He is fairly confused and evasive and has trouble expressing his feelings clearly.

Straddling the line between independence and submission, Marcus Dobre has a longing for freedom which competes with an inclination to be dependent. Marcus’ strange and captivating charm arises from this contradiction. However, Marcus’ imagination rules his feelings and emotions, and he is apt to create a dream of the person he loves. This is a treacherous tendency. Marcus’ tenderness may find itself in search of a partner who is never there or is interested in other things. In this case, Marcus would transfer his affection to other loved ones, such as children, friends, or pets, who will bring him great satisfaction.
Marcus is emotional and impressionable, and he puts a lot of faith in love and in a reliable partner with whom he’ll feel secure. His intuition will help him to choose the right partner.

Marcus Dobre 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.

Marcus Dobre has a lively and agile spirit, but he tends to apply his mental abilities in a somewhat haphazard and disorderly way. He is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences with an attitude free of either dogmatism or prejudice. His extremely lively mind leads him to have an opinion on every subject.
Although he enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses others and himself with witty remarks, his conversations could collapse into argument and conflict.
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. Actually, his overriding need to assert himself as an individual sometimes defeats discussion and prevents him from listening to the other person fairly. But if he were to succeed in disciplining his mind somewhat, he would have innumerable opportunities to apply his communications skills to a great career.
Moreover, he should be careful of his nerves, which are fairly high-strung. Any physical fitness activity would be beneficial; an Eastern discipline such as yoga or Tai-chi-chuan could teach him how to relax and improve control of his nervous and mental energies.
