drive and ambition
Rick Barry avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Barry is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Rick Barry will really fight is when he senses that his loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case he is a fierce defender. Rick Barry has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Rick's home or family. However, Rick Barry will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Rick Barry is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Barry to achieve his goals and desires.
He is a team player and collaborates well with others who share his goals, ideals and intentions. Rick Barry can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a common goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Rick, and he could be a leader, coach or director of any group endeavor.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Rick and he must have something that stirs his imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Rick Barry has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and Rick Barry will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Barry can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that only serves his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Rick Barry. He may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. He also tends to either overestimate or underestimate his own power and abilities.
Rick has the patience and the stamina to realize his visions and bring them down to earth, a fine balance between hard work and realism, and a positive, hopeful spirit. Rick Barry grows by adhering to systems and plans, and taking one step at a time. Overnight success or instant enlightenment is not what Barry aims for. His patient, well-balanced approach gives Rick Barry credibility with many different types of people, and he is likely to acquire an excellent reputation for being able to do big things without overreaching or becoming pretentious.
In some ways Rick Barry may feel that he has little choice about his role in society. He is compelled either by unusual external circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring potentially dark, difficult, or taboo issues into public awareness. Rick delves into the hidden side of life - things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed - and sheds light on them. Rick Barry could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. He is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
His profession could involve physical strength and prowess, such as athletics, fire fighting, law enforcement or the military. Rick Barry would never be happy in a quiet, sit-down job. Vigorous competition and strenuous work are undoubtedly key components of what Rick Barry does as well as of how he achieves his long-range goals.
His professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Rick Barry to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Rick is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of his role in life. On the other hand, Rick Barry may simply be confused and lack professional ambition.
He is very reserved and may try to avoid contact with others as much as possible. Rick Barry tends to suppress or hide his feelings and could see himself as unappreciated or worthless. He is likely to go his own way and appreciate solitude.
