challenges and difficulties
Garfunkel 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. Art Garfunkel 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 Art Garfunkel 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. Art Garfunkel 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 Art Garfunkel 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.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Art wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Art Garfunkel becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and his occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Although Art Garfunkel generally is happy, at times he could become a bit inhibited and because of this, he may let good opportunities slip by occasionally. Although he is interested in people, Garfunkel also tends to seek seclusion periodically.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Art Garfunkel 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 Art Garfunkel needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Art Garfunkel copes with stress. Art Garfunkel also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Art Garfunkel to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Art Garfunkel 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. Art Garfunkel should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
He is very obliging in his interaction with other people and can easily relate to them. Art Garfunkel is likely to have many friends and acquaintances who share the same ideas and viewpoints as he does.
