challenges and difficulties
Modigliani doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Amadeo is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Amadeo Modigliani 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 Amadeo Modigliani 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.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Amadeo Modigliani 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 Amadeo Modigliani 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, Amadeo stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Amadeo Modigliani 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 Amadeo Modigliani feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Amadeo Modigliani calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Amadeo Modigliani 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 dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Amadeo Modigliani needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Amadeo Modigliani should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
He is highly emotional and tends to display his feelings in a theatrical way. Amadeo Modigliani seems to enjoy being somewhat eccentric and finds it difficult to adapt himself to others. Although he may seek emotional fulfillment, Amadeo does not do well in relationships and team work.
