In addition to Pat's strong personal loyalties and the devotion he feels for his nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Pat Riley has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Pat Riley has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Riley should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. His good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Pat Riley a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Pat needs to avoid becoming bitter and resentful about life, and instead, to allow his great compassion and sensitivity to blossom and shine, rather than be dimmed by a few mistakes.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Pat Riley as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Riley may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Pat Riley usually keeps to himself.
Pat shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Pat has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Pat Riley sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Riley tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Pat has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Riley will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Riley tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Pat Riley does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Pat Riley has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Riley more than it bothers him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Riley. Pat Riley 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. Pat Riley may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Pat Riley 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. Pat has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Pat sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Pat really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Pat Riley has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Pat Riley tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
Pat Riley has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Pat blends charm and energy. Pat Riley has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. He may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Pat, and his romantic relationships are passionate.
He is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel his energies productively. Pat Riley may feel that everything is going to be all right, that he cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
