Although Ryan Ross approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), he also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side, as discussed below. His conflicting urges may vacillate between living passionately and dangerously, and being conservative and playing it safe.

Ryan Ross has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Ross can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Ryan Ross often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Ross can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Ryan Ross likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Ross. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Ross can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Ross tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Ryan has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Ross can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.

He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Ryan Ross analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Ross allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Ross. Ryan Ross has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts.
