Martin Mulholland considers consciousness to be one of the defining features of the ideal of self.
Martin Mulholland is trying to overcome his feelings of insecurity. To do so, he needs a home: a dwelling, a territory, or perhaps a safe space or setting where he can rest, and let down his systems of defense against the outer world, which he finds aggressive and hostile. He is ready to make some sacrifices in order to maintain and consolidate the structure he has chosen. True inner security, based on real knowledge of himself, his abilities, and his shortcomings, his strengths and his weaknesses would no doubt be most effective and would allow him to remain open to the varieties of experience offered by the world.
Martin Mulholland has a profound and fertile inner life and a prolific imagination, but his energy resources are not always sufficient to follow through on and accomplish his multitude of dreams. He tends to live in osmosis with his environment, and effort and action take a heavy toll on him. Usually, he understands phenomena and events intuitively, without really making any effort; so he is not in the habit of disciplining or shaping his thought processes. Like his thoughts, his personality is rather amorphous and disorganized. As a result of this lack of structure, he may have some trouble asserting his individuality and making some personal contribution to society through his career. His tendency to shut out reality and dream impossible dreams, like his refusal of responsibility and duty, may be a source of some difficulty for him.

His behavior mirrors this tendency. He will adopt relatively strict models elaborated on the basis of logical or moral reasons. He does not readily express his personal feelings or emotions and may sometimes strike others as a rigid person. However, his conscientiousness and application make him thrive in a work environment, and he tends to treat social engagements and activities as a form of duty.
Martin Mulholland is extremely sensitive and perceptive. He luxuriates in tenderness and gentleness more than passion. Because he abhor any form of violence and is disturbed by the absence of harmony, he has developed a tact and diplomacy which make his relations with others smooth and easy.
Martin Mulholland has a sensitivity and irrepressible imagination. Due to this, sometimes he has trouble distinguishing dreams from reality. Although his bubbling imagination provides an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tends to be less helpful and positive in matters that concern his self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient. In a relationship, he is extremely romantic and does not always see others the way they really are.

Martin Mulholland has a good emotional involvement. The usual romantic behavior and the lifestyle values prevailing in this area are not really appropriate for him.

However, you will be quite attached to your domestic life and will demonstrate great emotional loyalty. You could look forward to a harmonious and happy marriage with a partner who runs an efficient household.
Martin Mulholland has a romantic imagination, soaring with idealism, dreams, and poetry. He is emotive and hypersensitive, making him especially vulnerable emotionally, since he is sometimes overwhelmed by his feelings and affects. Although he seeks an ideal soulmate, a partner with whom he could maintain blissful, smooth relations, he is sometimes met with disillusionment. Because his rather excessive sensitivity and his need to merge with the other are deep and powerful enough, they can submerge his judgment and discernment, so he sometimes form extremely intense bonds too quickly with individuals who are not appropriate partners in many ways. When he meets someone, he falls under the enchantment of his dream of ideal love and cannot keep himself from delighting in a reverie of future romance, placing the other on a pedestal. Early on in the relationship, he yields to another of his characteristic urges and loses himself in the individual who is so dear to him, melding with them, only to awaken one morning and find himself as if in the arms of a stranger, greatly astounded and disappointed. Actually, his psyche is constructed in such a way as to make his sensitivity a function of the environment, in many cases; it follows the flow of momentary emotions and impressions. Before he takes on any major commitments, he should make a conscious effort to evaluate the relationship realistically, and see whether the person really reciprocates his intense love, for you may merely be in love with the mirage of an ideal partner. Your tendency to believe in your illusions may mark you as an easy prey for people with bad intentions. It would be a good idea for you to find a different object for your affections, or a form of sublimation, because you tend to be so disappointed by your great emotional investments. The delicacy and subtlety of your imagination procure artistic refinement for you, and you love the arts, music, and literature, which could all be good sources of emotional involvement and fulfillment. Because your sensitivity also makes it easy for you to empathize with the psychological or social difficulties your peers are struggling with, you might also find it rewarding to commit yourself to social work.
Martin Mulholland has a high mental and intellect.
Martin Mulholland powerfully ruled by his determination and vital needs, his intellectual abilities come to the forefront when his purpose is to communicate his ideal and plot his action or strategy. He can be both logical and astute and have gifts for theorizing but may sometimes lack perspective.

Martin Mulholland has a lively and agile spirit. 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 you how to relax and improve control of your nervous and mental energies.
