Psychology of Phosphorus
# The essence running through Phosphorus is a lack of personal boundaries, and it is this lack of boundaries that accounts for both the positive and the negative characteristics of the Phosphorus psyche
# Phosphorus is like a sponge, absorbing all the impressions that are in the immediate environment, and then experiencing waves of emotion, both pleasant and unpleasant, which they produce.
# The romantic poet John Keats describes Phosphorus' impressionability very clearly in a letter to a friend when he writes 'as to the poetic character ...it has no self; it is everything and nothing; it has no character; it enjoys light and shade.
# As a result of the extraordinary 'openness' of the Phosphorus psyche, reality is a far broader and richer experience for Phosphorus than it is for most other mortals, but it is also more confusing and bewildering.
# No type is more innocent than Phosphorus (though Pulsatilla, Baryta and China come close).
