Daniel Baldwin often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.

Caution and realism are his virtues though Daniel limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary.

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