Robert Bentley experiences his inner life as a process of growth and maturation, nurtured by his involvement with others and the positive and negative encounters this generates.
Robert Bentley leads a life which is open to the outside world. His personal consciousness is forged by the heat of outer events. He is inclined to adopt the most objective viewpoint possible to be pragmatic and perhaps even materialistic.
Robert Bentley is ambitious and has a natural tendency to better himself socially and intellectually. His ideas and aspirations are grandiose, and he will be eager to share them with others. Although he is kind-hearted, he enjoys being in control of situations. He derives great fulfillment from the role of the protector and will surround himself with people who need him. He is eager to obtain recognition and honor, but extremely fearful of disgrace. His visions derive from his ambitions, often aglow with idealism. However, they may be somewhat unrealistic and impractical. Social recognition and esteem are essential to him, and he will demonstrate an amazing ability to achieve the high goals he set for himself.
Robert Bentley 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.
Robert Bentley is aware of a lack of confidence in himself and in life. Prone to apathy, as if deprived of optimism and cheerfulness at some time, he may often be discouraged by the strains of living. This reluctance to accept the challenges of existence, which he may perceive as a major problem, may be the result of a self-image which is elusive or flawed. Perhaps, as a child, he was not given the means to develop an ideal image due to the lack of an appropriate role model or caregiver. As a result, he is unable to move himself toward an improved, more positive disposition. He may reject any challenge that would enable him to surpass his current self, or accept it only after long meditation. Steeped in the awareness of his problem, he may be tormented and wish to change. Vigorous physical exercise and an effort to visualize an admirable figure would be beneficial to him, as well as a diet that includes vitality-bolstering vitamins and protein.
