challenges and difficulties
Andrei Sakharov has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Sakharov knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Andrei Sakharov may be something of a hypochondriac also. Andrei must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Andrei Sakharov has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Andrei limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Andrei Sakharov difficult to get to know intimately, as Sakharov tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Andrei should take care not to trust others too blindly. Some of his friends or associates may be untruthful and try to deceive him, resulting in great disappointments or even losses for Sakharov.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Andrei Sakharov 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 Andrei Sakharov 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, Andrei stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Andrei Sakharov 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 Andrei Sakharov feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Andrei Sakharov calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Andrei Sakharov 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 Andrei Sakharov is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Sakharov's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Andrei Sakharov back, or which he 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 his life.
Sakharov co-operate well with others and has the ability to give and receive stimulating suggestions. Andrei Sakharov is always receptive to new ideas and ready for spontaneous group efforts. He seems to have an instant recall of things and is likely to act just as quickly.
