drive and ambition
Once Don Barry sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Red Barry pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Don labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Don Barry to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Don Barry has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Red Barry gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Don Barry needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what he does. Don's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Don Barry also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Don Barry often buys things on impulse and he can be reckless with his material resources and money. Don has certain possessions that he is extremely attached to and possessive of.
He is dynamic, decisive and somewhat impulsive. Don Barry responds quickly and spontaneously to challenges, and enjoys vigorous physical activities that require fast reflexes and a good sense of rhythm and timing. Don has an abundance of energy and vitality, and a restless desire to see progress and change - he hates stagnation. He is individualistic and makes a good leader, spearheading new projects and inspiring others to act.
While Don Barry is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Unlike some who have hopes and fantasies, Red Barry is a person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how impractical or fantastic they may seem. Don Barry has a quixotic, idealistic streak. He may be more inspired to work for a higher cause than simply for his own personal achievement.
Don has the ability to verbalize his feelings and perceptions well. His judgment is keen and sharp, he is diplomatic and can express himself in good language. Don Barry initiates conversations with people and is never at a loss for appropriate remarks.
Don has great courage and relentless energy to do whatever he sets his mind to. But he is inclined to want his own way and has a tendency to manipulate others. Because of his foolhardy actions at times, Don Barry is also prone to accidents.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence and stature in his community can be his. Don Barry feels that his destiny involves leadership or distinguishing himself in some way. Don possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for his talent. Don Barry should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit his opportunities.
Discipline, concentration, a realistic sense of what is attainable and steady dedication to achieving his ambitions are the keys to Don's progress. Don Barry is apt to move slowly but surely in the direction of his goals, and solid achievement is the outcome of this conservative approach.
A fast thinker, Don is able to grasp everything immediately and can reach conclusions quickly. Don Barry thinks about a particular matter acutely and keenly and then acts swiftly. He may lean toward becoming an inventor, a mathematician or a physicist.
