challenges and difficulties
Pacino either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Al Pacino may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Al Pacino feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Al Pacino understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Al Pacino is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Al Pacino will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Al feel a little out of step with others. Al Pacino takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Al feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Al Pacino has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Al Pacino instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Al Pacino needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Al stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Al Pacino has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Al Pacino feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Al Pacino calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Al Pacino needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Al Pacino is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Pacino's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
