Noah Schnacky’s psyche follows an introverted flow. He knows himself and attempts to develop his inner resources to their maximum potential.
Noah Schnacky’s tendency to introversion inclines him to live inside himself, amid his inner world. He is apt to listen to his subjectivity, his intuition, and his secret opinions rather than reason and logic.
While Noah Schnacky is attracted to interpersonal activities, his significant need for inner security may stand in the way of his overtures to others. Since Noah is highly receptive to other people’s inner natures, he seeks tight bonds with others. He unconsciously needs their psychological support in his quest for himself. Were Noah to evaluate his psychological development, he would place more value upon human warmth, intimacy, and the need to share than on intellectual understanding or personal freedom of expression.
Noah Schnacky is a realist. He approaches life pragmatically, and even his feelings are based on rational, tangible evidence. He bases his judgements on past experience and is prone to skepticism. A hard worker, he takes pride in his own endeavors and has a personal concept of his productivity. His possessions help him assert himself as an individual and act as an antidote to any feelings of insecurity. As a result, material accomplishments may preoccupy him more than either love as a passion or intellectual or philosophical considerations. Nevertheless, he becomes attached to anything which offers him certainty.
Noah Schnacky works harder than others to understand other people’s feelings. But this seeming lack of empathy and compassion for others simply mirrors Noah’s own difficulty in understanding his own feelings and emotional needs. Noah is not insensitive, but he is baffled by his own emotions. He sees the emotional world as a foreign terrain, perhaps fraught with hidden dangers. Becoming familiar with it would present more drawbacks than advantages. As a result, Noah may appear to be hard or aloof.
Noah might struggle to establish a rewarding relationship, as he seeks special individuals to bond with. If Noah were able to accept and understand his own emotions, he would have an easier time grappling with other people’s feelings.
Noah has a strong desire for emotional independence, and might have trouble seeing other people’s emotional needs. Noah might even be the first to deny that such needs are real.
As a result, Noah’s dependency on others is unconscious. Because it is seen as such a threat, it is repressed. Actually, although Noah offers conscious resistance to anyone who tries to lure him out of his emotional bubble, he is always making timid, half-conscious forays into the world of feelings, because his loneliness and fear are so unbearable.
