Serious and responsible, he tries to carry the world on his shoulders and rarely lets others know that he needs help and support. Richard Pryor denies or ignores his own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept him if he appears "weak". He is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and tells himself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Richard Pryor needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with his "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, he may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. His feelings and loyalties run deep, but he often does not let people know how much he cares. Richard Pryor also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy himself, and play.
Pryor works well with the public and has an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to Richard, and he may invest more of his emotional energy into his career or public life than in his private life. He is likely to be engaged in providing and caring for others in a professional capacity.
He is easygoing, agreeable and tolerant, willing to overlook others' mistakes, forget the past, and begin anew on a positive note. He enjoys making others comfortable and happy, and he sometimes overdoes his generosity. Richard Pryor often feels that "everything will turn out all right no matter what I do", thereby becoming lazy and lackadaisical.
There is another side to Richard Pryor as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Richard Pryor has an inner poise and balance that enables him to act in a cool, efficient manner during emotional trauma and stress. He maintains his perspective and objectivity about highly charged emotional issues - sometimes to the chagrin of others who might wish that Pryor would react more intensely. Richard is quietly supportive and faithful to his friends and loved ones.
In love relationships, Richard Pryor desires a deep, intense and passionate union with his beloved and forms very strong emotional bonds and attachments. Richard "marries" the person he loves at a very deep emotional level, and is often extremely possessive and jealous of anyone who may pose a threat to that union. Pryor can be very demanding of his love partner. Richard Pryor tends to be somewhat suspicious of his partner's relationships, even if they are merely platonic. If he is ever betrayed, Richard Pryor is capable of hating with as much force and intensity as he once loved. He is attracted to people who have an aura of mystery about them.
Pryor is a very personable, affectionate, loving friend and will always know many people who love and cherish him. Richard Pryor prefers being with others rather than on his own, and he feels very incomplete without a special person in his life to share his love with. Being half of a close, loving relationship is very important to Richard.
Richard is a peacemaker - the one who adapts, harmonizes, and makes concessions for the sake of the relationship. His charm and agreeableness make Richard Pryor very popular.
Richard Pryor is extremely amorous and it is difficult for him to go without romantic relationships for very long. When he is attracted to someone, Richard Pryor pursues her very ardently and sometimes comes on too strong. Being engaged in creative or artistic work can also satisfy his very strong desire for love and beauty.
Money is liable to be an issue in his life, not because he does not have it, but because Richard Pryor cannot or will not hold onto it. Richard Pryor has a freehanded, generous, open attitude and would prefer to spend and enjoy and partake in the pleasures of the moment than to save, discipline or budget himself. At Pryor's worst, he wants an easy ride and friends will often let Richard freeload because he is such an agreeable, friendly and pleasant sort. Alternatively, Pryor could let other people take advantage of his hospitality and tolerance.
Pryor also avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it is too much trouble or too petty. Richard Pryor just wants to have a good time.
Richard's pleasure-loving nature and his emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing his affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Richard Pryor is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times he is far more contained as described here. Because he is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Pryor is to being left out or unappreciated.
Feelings of loneliness, extreme shyness and/or the fear of rejection plague Richard Pryor and may well inhibit him from expressing warmth and affection in an open way. Denying himself pleasure, comfort, and "nice things" due to feelings of unworthiness can also limit the joy Richard allows himself. Heartache and a loss of love in his life - perhaps while quite young - will serve to either close his heart to love or cause him to deeply cherish the friends and love he receives from others. The saying that "true love is hard to find" is certainly true for Richard Pryor, but he will value it tremendously when it does come into his life.
The feeling that "there is not enough for me" may cause him to be very frugal and stingy with money as well.
Richard Pryor experiences powerful, compelling emotional and sexual attractions, and he may feel that he has little choice or control over his desires. Richard Pryor has an intense need for love and may be emotionally greedy or insatiable. His love relationships are passionate and often tumultuous and painful as well. Jealousy, power struggles or possessiveness can become areas of conflict in his relationships. On the positive side, Richard Pryor can be unusually creative and bring about beneficial and healing changes in the lives of others, motivated by his deeply felt love.
