challenges and difficulties
Don Johnson 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 Johnson knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Don Johnson may be something of a hypochondriac also. Don 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.
Don Johnson has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Don limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Don Johnson difficult to get to know intimately, as Johnson tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
His disposition is somewhat melancholic and Don Johnson could have a rather pessimistic outlook. Don has an inner need to be alone and to deeply meditate on his thoughts. Don Johnson takes life seriously and may have been taught early on to learn from his mistakes.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Don Johnson 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 Don Johnson needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Don Johnson - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Johnson tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Don Johnson is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Johnson's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Don Johnson needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Don Johnson has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Johnson will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Don Johnson back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help himself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Don has a tendency to be a martyr.
Johnson cooperates with others in a vigorous and energetic way. His motto seems to be "one for all and all for one", and he feels strongly connected with others. In fact, Don Johnson looks upon other people as necessary for a worthwhile life.
