His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Bernardo Guillermo may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Bernardo may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.

Bernardo Guillermo has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs.
