challenges and difficulties
Elsa Benítez has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Benítez knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Elsa Benítez may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Elsa must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.

The direction Elsa Benítez needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively she is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary.

Elsa Benítez has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that she must be self-reliant and that only she can come up with the answers she needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate her from others, or make Elsa Benítez feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Elsa Benítez calls social "games" do not come naturally to her. Elsa Benítez 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 her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues.

Elsa Benítez has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
