Although he is dramatic and likes to show off or stand out in some way (as described on the previous page), there is another side to Pat Buchanan that would gladly hole up in a deep, dark, quiet place. This other, more private and secretive side is described below.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Pat Buchanan 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. Pat Buchanan 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.
Pat Buchanan 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 Pat Buchanan commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Pat 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 Buchanan has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Pat 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, Pat does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Buchanan can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Buchanan can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Pat Buchanan 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.
Pat Buchanan loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Pat never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Pat Buchanan tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
The urge to learn and to communicate is essential to Pat Buchanan, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Buchanan is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Pat enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
