challenges and difficulties
Dirk Bogarde has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Bogarde knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Dirk Bogarde may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Dirk must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
It may be difficult for Dirk Bogarde to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Dirk may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Dirk Bogarde also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Dirk Bogarde may be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
Dirk Bogarde tends to be somewhat gloomy and may feel that life is difficult and that his will is blocked in some way. Dirk may find it hard to make decisions and to concentrate on his goals, which he may consider unworthy.
Dirk should take care not to trust others too blindly. Some of his friends or associates may be untruthful and try to deceive him, resulting in great disappointments or even losses for Bogarde.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dirk Bogarde 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 Dirk Bogarde needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Dirk stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Dirk Bogarde has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Dirk Bogarde feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Dirk Bogarde calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Dirk Bogarde needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Bogarde's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
Dirk Bogarde has a tendency to shy away from other people, and he reacts toward others in an almost fearful way. Bogarde seems to lack confidence in himself and for this reason may feel that he lacks the ability to adapt easily to relationships with others.
He is very obliging in his interaction with other people and can easily relate to them. Dirk Bogarde is likely to have many friends and acquaintances who share the same ideas and viewpoints as he does.
Bogarde is inclined to seek out relationships with people who have the same interests and he has a desire to work with them on obtaining mutual objectives. Some of Dirk's contacts or introductions could come about suddenly.
