Riker Lynch has a complex personality. Riker is astir with contradictory impulses and desires, some of them imperious. Although Riker’s rational mind is highly developed and seems to be the source of motivation for Riker’s behavior, the most significant realm of Riker’s psychology is Riker’s subconscious. Therein, a conflict between understanding and feeling is raging, between the psychological functions of thought and sensation (C.G. Jung’s terms). Until this conflict subsides, Riker might feel a sensation of emptiness. Riker is troubled by and unable to explain this feeling, which leads Riker to adopt an attitude of doubt and skepticism. This conflict, and its various ramifications, are the main obstacle to Riker’s individuation. Riker’s task consists of becoming the master of the energies of Riker’s subconscious, and developing Riker’s consciousness in terms of the hidden and invisible. Riker’s evolution will occur through a series of metamorphoses and rebirths. However, at certain points in Riker’s life, despite Riker’s caution and clear thinking, Riker finds Riker in situations Riker neither desired nor planned, as a result of explosions and eruptions of the elements fermenting in Riker’s psyche. Riker always survives the worst physical, emotional, or intellectual tests, however, fairly unscathed, because of Riker’s ability to be reborn and start afresh.
As a partner, Riker might struggle to make compromises. Riker may appear frosty and distant at times, and Riker has a taste for challenging, provocative remarks. With Riker, as well as with others, Riker is sometimes excessive and complicated. In a discussion, Riker will express strong, honest opinions. In crisis situations, Riker wishes for Riker’s efforts to be noticed. Riker is obsessed with the problem of death. Riker tends to believe it holds the secret of life – that death can be overcome.
Sometimes Riker’s anxiety about death is expressed as a search for answers – how can one learn to live with death, how can one detach oneself from the past and its flesh-curdlingly morbid realities… Decay, immobility, ultimate delivery – these images, which are all symbolically associated with death, sometimes haunt Riker.
Intellectually, Riker has powerfully developed intellectual faculties which yield the maximum effectiveness for Riker’s behavior. Deductive, analytical, prospective, Riker is at once a researcher, a detective, and a scientist. Riker is fairly introverted, and Riker’s discrimination tends to direct Riker toward the spheres of inner life. Riker is astute at drawing rational parallels between phenomena of different origins. Riker’s love life will be subject to desire and passion. But since Riker is more aroused by ideas and fantasies, Riker may experience lulls in intensity. When Riker yields to Riker’s penchant for emotional upheaval and Riker’s desire for coercion and pleasure, Riker may find Riker sailing into the teeth of a hurricane-force gale.

Born in the three days after the rising of the new moon, Riker Lynch is said to be a “new moon” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration gives him a subjective character, somewhat impulsive and sometimes emotive. Generally, he does not see the world in objective terms; instead, he bases his attitude on the feelings various situations arouse inside him.
Likewise, in human relationships, he tends to project his imaginary reality onto others instead of seeing them for what they are. As a result, his judgements and reasoning are sometimes deprived of perspective.
Riker may want to make an effort to refrain from overinterpreting other people’s actions, because, being the product of his imagination in most cases, his interpretations are mistaken. If he applies himself to listening more openly, people may reveal their deeper motivations. He’ll be happier and more effective as a result.
