Roosevelt either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Franklin D. Roosevelt may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Franklin D. Roosevelt feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!

"What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Roosevelt's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
