Dr. Max Euwe
challenges and difficulties
Dr. Max Euwe has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Max is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Dr. Max Euwe 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.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Euwe's which may inhibit him a great deal. Dr. Max Euwe must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Dr. Max Euwe may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Max may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Dr. Max Euwe may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Dr. Max Euwe pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Dr. Max Euwe underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Dr. Max Euwe tends to be his own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of himself and harshly criticizing or persecuting himself when he does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in his life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Max's belief that he must struggle alone.
He is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Dr. Max Euwe develops his power and inner strength. However, Dr. Max Euwe should not make life harder than it is. He must give himself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that he is only human.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and Max may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Dr. Max Euwe is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationships with his parents.

The direction Dr. Max Euwe needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Dr. Max Euwe becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Dr. Max Euwe needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Euwe also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Dr. Max Euwe tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
