Behind Barry's proud and magnanimous demeanor (as described on the previous page) lies a real go-getter. Others feel that he is rather narcissistic. Rick Barry should strive to always be aware of others' needs and concerns to prove this criticism wrong!
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage.

He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Rick Barry also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate.

He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing.

Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Barry's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Rick Barry to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily.
