challenges and difficulties

Brian 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.
Brian Wilson has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Brian limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Brian Wilson difficult to get to know intimately, as Wilson tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Brian wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Brian Wilson 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 Brian Wilson 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 Brian Wilson copes with stress. Brian Wilson 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 Brian Wilson to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
