Behind Barry's rather cool, conservative, somewhat impersonal and businesslike demeanor (as described on the previous page), he is much more passionate and emotional. John Barry often conceals his vulnerability beneath a veneer of toughness or indifference.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. John Barry 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. John Barry 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.
John Barry 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 John Barry commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. John 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 Barry has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. John 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, John does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Barry can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Barry can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is John Barry 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.
John Barry loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. John never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. John Barry tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Barry.
John Barry has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.

John Barry has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. John Barry tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, John Barry also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. John Barry takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to John, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. John Barry may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
John Barry is a restless spirit, a bit self-willed, and he has a tendency to overstrain his nervous system. He is easily aroused and quick to explode when things do not meet his expectations. He is highly individualistic, resourceful and determined.
