Dick Haymes tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Haymes withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Dick's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Dick Haymes seesaws between playing it safe, and doing something unique and original, between self-control and letting loose, between being a responsible adult and a rebellious adolescent, between what Dick has to or should do and what his spontaneous impulses tell him to do. All of this creates enormous inner tension as well as friction with people in his environment. Dick Haymes may, for instance, bitterly resent government or authority figures who "crush his individuality", yet ignore his obligations and responsibilities, thus ensuring that they will pursue him. Learning to give each side its due is an ongoing challenge for Haymes.

Dick Haymes needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Dick directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Haymes' larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
