Barrett does not appear to be an intensely emotional or sentimental person, and he is often unaware of his own or other people's deeper feelings and emotional needs. Tears and tantrums bewilder him and make him very uncomfortable. Barrett Blade would rather settle differences by talking things out reasonably and rationally, but he tends to ignore or poke fun at any attempt to probe his own or others' inner depths.
Barrett Blade avoids heavy, demanding emotional relationships and is wary of making personal commitments.
He needs ample mental stimulation and feels close to people with whom he can share thoughts and intellectual interests. Conversation is very important to Blade. The strong, silent partner is not for him.
His own feelings and emotions are something of an enigma to Barrett, and it is often difficult for him to share what he is feeling with others.
Barrett Blade frequently withdraws from the world and needs a healing, peaceful environment in order to blossom and come out of his own world.
Blade identifies with the oppressed, disenfranchised or underdog in any situation and he wants to help them or care for them in some way.
Barrett has conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate his personal life and relationships. He may feel that he cannot depend on his love partner to take care of him or perhaps Blade cannot decide what he really wants in love relationships: a parent or a lover. If his needs for emotional sustenance and love are not satisfied, overeating (especially sweets) can become a problem.
Barrett Blade tends to be touchy, defensive and rather territorial, and if he perceives a threat to his family or home or personal safety, he can be quite aggressive. Sometimes Barrett feels out of sorts and hostile for no apparent reason, and this is usually due to unexpressed, unresolved anger from the past. Barrett Blade also has a desire to lead, to compete, or to be a free agent - and he is not entirely conscious of this desire. It is good for Blade to have benign outlets and ways to let off steam on a regular basis, such as demanding physical work or athletics. Otherwise Barrett Blade may be rather hard to live with, even abusive in his relationships.
Although Blade gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), he also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure, which enable Barrett Blade to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies. This side of his is described below.
Serious and emotionally reserved, Barrett Blade was probably never an exuberant, playful child, and he rarely expresses himself in a spontaneous, childlike manner. He is cautious about letting others get close to him and sometimes withdraws from people altogether. At times, Barrett Blade feels lonely or isolated, even when he is with people. Learning to appreciate his own company and find satisfying solitary activities is essential to Barrett's emotional well-being.
In addition to Barrett's rather introverted, serious or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Barrett Blade craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Blade rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance each other out. His freer and unpredictable side will now be described.
He is uninhibited and spontaneous and will often do something unexpected or humorous in order to loosen people up and get them out of their rut. Barrett Blade craves emotional stimulation, excitement, surprises and anything new. Blade also loves to feel free and unfettered.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Barrett Blade gives very selflessly and devotedly to those he loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, Barrett Blade may become romantically involved with a person because he or she expresses a need for love, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
He is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Barrett feels he can have a deep spiritual relationship with. Barrett Blade idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
Barrett is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling and people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show him places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Moreover, Barrett Blade feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only for his own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of his.
He is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy himself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. Barrett Blade rarely does something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in his early life, Barrett is very cautious about becoming involved in close relationships and sharing his feelings. Though Blade craves love and affection, intimacy is difficult for him. He may become romantically involved with people who do not value him or treat him well. Barrett Blade needs to learn to love and value himself before he finds happiness in love.
Somewhat over-enthusiastic in matters of love relationships, Barrett Blade could fall in love with the wrong person. He may be too selfless and have the illusion that his only need in relationships is to make the other person happy, leading to disappointments and regrets.
