challenges and difficulties
Amerie has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Rogers knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Amerie may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Amerie must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Amerie takes both her work and her health very seriously, but she may demand so much of herself at work that she compromises her health. Amerie can become a workaholic, not so much because she has lofty ambitions, but because she never feels like she has done enough. Amerie is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that she may not enjoy it at all.
Rogers can also get overly involved in self-improvement or her health, and she tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Since she lacks the capacity to adapt, Amerie tends to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so Amerie should try to keep her temper at bay. She may have to work extremely hard and handle a great many responsibilities.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Amerie instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Amerie needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Amerie copes with stress. Amerie also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Amerie to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
The arena she is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Amerie should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials she feels she possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Amerie back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in her life.
Amerie should take extra care in her relationships with people, for she could easily end up in the wrong crowd. Amerie could be the victim of fraud and falsehood or through association may become an accessory to malicious action.
