His desire for harmonious relationships and surroundings is so strong that he avoids personal confrontation or any expression of intense, unpleasant emotions. Don Barry is an idealist who would like to paint the world in pastel colors, and live in peace and harmony with others at all times. He is able to see points of similarity and unity with people who are vastly different from him, and befriend many different types of people. He is a considerate and thoughtful friend, and has a real flair for making others feel accepted and appreciated. Inwardly, Don Barry is often torn with indecision and is much more at odds with himself than others would ever guess based on his flawless disposition.
Red Barry depends a great deal upon other people for emotional support and he has a large "family" of friends who care about him and treat him as kin. The women in Don's life are particularly important to him, and his relationships with them have a powerful impact on his sense of security and happiness. Don Barry may be overly dependent and unsure of himself without a close partner.
Don Barry 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 Don feels out of sorts and hostile for no apparent reason, and this is usually due to unexpressed, unresolved anger from the past. Don Barry 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 Red Barry to have benign outlets and ways to let off steam on a regular basis, such as demanding physical work or athletics. Otherwise Don Barry may be rather hard to live with, even abusive in his relationships.

His domestic life may be very unstable - but Red Barry likes it that way.
Although Don Barry was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, he also has a diametrically opposed tendency - namely the urge to escape all contention and ugliness.

He is a dreamer who is attracted to the inner, mystical side of life, and may have trouble distinguishing the real from the imagined or illusory.

Don Barry supports his partner in taking risks and making positive changes, rather than preserving the status quo. He also very much wants a partner who will encourage his own aspirations and dreams.
