He is an active person who needs to participate in community activities and is likely to be successful at whatever academic or business profession he chooses.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Richard Dean Anderson cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Anderson can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Richard has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs.

He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart.
