challenges and difficulties
Bob Dole takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Robert enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Bob Dole also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Bob Dole takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Robert can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Bob Dole is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Dole can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Bob Dole will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Robert feel a little out of step with others. Bob Dole takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Robert feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Bob Dole has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
The side of Bob Dole that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at times Robert finds it hard to relax. Bob Dole may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Dole's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
He prefers to work alone rather than with other people. Content on his own, Dole tends to become inhibited when he is with others, especially women. Bob Dole may feel that the effort required to be with others is too great and probably not even worth it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bob Dole 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 Dole 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 Bob Dole copes with stress. Bob Dole 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 Bob Dole to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Bob Dole should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Bob Dole back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive anti-authoritarian attitude. Bob Dole seeks constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and individual freedom at any cost.
He is highly emotional and tends to display his feelings in a theatrical way. Bob Dole seems to enjoy being somewhat eccentric and finds it difficult to adapt himself to others. Although he may seek emotional fulfillment, Robert does not do well in relationships and team work.
Not at all selfish, Bob Dole has the ability to share the joy he feels with other people. Robert seems to have a gift for getting more reserved people to open up, teaching them how to give and receive love and affection.
He is very obliging and always looks for relationships with other people. Bob Dole tends to feel really at home with his family or in groups or associations that he may join. Robert has a strong desire to feel at one with his community.
