Although Mario Barrett approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), he also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side, as discussed below. His conflicting urges may vacillate between living passionately and dangerously, and being conservative and playing it safe.
At heart Mario Barrett is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Mario Barrett has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Barrett can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Mario Barrett often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Barrett can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Mario Barrett likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Barrett. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Barrett can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Barrett tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Mario has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Barrett can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Mario Barrett seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Mario Barrett analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Barrett allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Barrett. Mario Barrett has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Mario Barrett may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Mario Barrett 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. Mario has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Mario sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Mario really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Mario Barrett has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties.

While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Mario Barrett also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Mario's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
