Richard Pryor is extremely strong-willed and he pursues his goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. He is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and he is very difficult to influence or sway once his mind is made up. When Richard Pryor wants something, Pryor can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. He is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why he feels as strongly and deeply as he does.
He also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal his aims and intentions, and the intensity of his will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, Pryor is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Richard Pryor often manipulates or forces his will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. He is not interested in confrontation but he is a formidable foe if he encounters opposition or aggression. Richard is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
Richard Pryor encounters numerous challenges and possibly defeats in the pursuit of his goals and desires, and his setbacks often occur because Richard has been too rash or intent on satisfying his own will regardless of the impact on others.

Richard Pryor struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is a constant uphill battle. He is also prone to suppressing his feelings - especially aggressive or angry ones.

On the positive side, Richard Pryor is capable of immense patience, endurance and tireless effort in order to attain his goals and desires.

Richard Pryor has a powerful will and when he wants something, he pursues it passionately and relentlessly until he achieves it. He may be so driven by his desire that he loses all objectivity.

Richard Pryor has enormous energy reserves, and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if he uses his energies for constructive purposes.
An inner conflict between the desire for greater opportunities and the desire to hold on to safe and predictable circumstances could make Pryor somewhat discontent. Richard Pryor longs for changes in his life, but may lack the tenacity to bring them about.
Indecision and confusion over his ambitions or direction in life may hold Richard back from achieving anything solid, especially in his early life. He is very much a dreamer and his interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals.

Alternatively, Richard Pryor could use his dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - in the arts, music or entertainment.
Richard Pryor feels that he knows who he is and therefore is confident that he can achieve his objectives. He may consider marriage as his sole aim in life and could become completely bound up in his marriage and family life.
