challenges and difficulties
Franchot has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Tone.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Franchot Tone 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, Franchot 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 Franchot Tone may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Franchot Tone tends to suppress his feelings and may be somewhat inhibited in love relationships. He may often feel rejected or he may give the impression of rejecting others himself. Perhaps his mother or father found it difficult to express their affection.
Franchot Tone tends to experience inner conflicts between his responsibilities and his desires. Tone may give preference to duties over desires, which makes it very difficult for him to be truly happy.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Franchot Tone 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 Franchot Tone 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 Franchot Tone copes with stress. Franchot Tone 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 Franchot Tone to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Tone's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Franchot Tone needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
