Richard Marinick has to be wary of his tendency to lack discrimination in his charitable endeavors. He should also avoid trying to help those who are incorrigible. Moreover, he should not be afraid of confrontation. He is inclined to hide his thoughts and feelings, make excuses and even lie, often just to avoid a person or an issue. Richard Marinick should strive to be honest in his communications, which will also help him to be honest with himself. If he channels his energies well, Marinick can be a asset to others - be it on a professional level as a counselor, teacher, or consultant or on a personal day-to-day level.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Richard Marinick as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand.

Richard shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct.

Richard Marinick 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, Marinick 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.

He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict.

His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Richard Marinick's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Marinick can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
