Behind Powell's seemingly rational, detached, cool and objective demeanor (as described on the previous page), he is really far more passionate and emotionally intense, as described below.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Dick Powell is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Dick Powell usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Dick Powell also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Dick Powell commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Dick merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Powell has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Dick will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Dick does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Powell can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Powell can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Dick Powell emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Dick Powell loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Dick never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Dick Powell tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Powell is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Dick Powell is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Dick Powell often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Dick has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Dick sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Dick really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Powell occasionally gambles, splurges or overextends himself in ways that may be at odds with his usual way of doing things. Exaggerating his accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up his own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Dick Powell also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable him to recover from the negative consequences of his excesses, and to learn from them.
He is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Dick Powell does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Powell's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Dick Powell and shape important life decisions and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Powell is capable of extraordinary physical or mental efforts to gain success and achieve something that will bring him recognition and respect. Dick Powell has a strong need for authority and power over others and is likely to perform better in a leading position.
