challenges and difficulties
Woodward doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Bob 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.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Bob Woodward may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Bob may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Bob Woodward may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Bob wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Bob Woodward 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.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bob Woodward 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 Bob Woodward needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Bob Woodward's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Woodward's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Bob Woodward is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Bob should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Bob Woodward can offer the world at large.
