Although Richard Dreyfuss expresses himself in a lighthearted, friendly and open manner (as mentioned in the previous chapter), at heart he is much more emotionally complex and intense than he appears. Richard harbors deeper feelings and a much "darker" side than is immediately apparent. He may be torn at times between keeping things light and playful versus exploring his own emotional depths and those of others. However, Dreyfuss' light airy side and his deep, mysterious side can balance one another: he can verbalize, reflect upon and consciously understand, explain and elucidate his deepest feelings. Richard Dreyfuss is a natural researcher and he probably loves mystery stories. His sense of humor can be his saving grace when he gets too serious.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Richard Dreyfuss 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. Richard Dreyfuss 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.
Richard Dreyfuss 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 Richard Dreyfuss commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Richard 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 Dreyfuss has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Richard 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, Richard does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Dreyfuss can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Dreyfuss can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Richard Dreyfuss 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.
Richard Dreyfuss loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Richard never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Richard Dreyfuss tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
His energies are directed toward either honing his professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Richard Dreyfuss is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and he is quite a perfectionist!
Dreyfuss can easily become overly identified or involved with the task he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Richard Dreyfuss overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Richard Dreyfuss attends to his emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of his intuition, dreams and gut feelings, he will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
He is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel his energies productively. Richard Dreyfuss 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.
