Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Herschel, and sexual inhibitions may result from this.

His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid.

His overall outlook on life is serious, and Herschel Savage may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Once he decides what he wants to do, Herschel Savage will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Herschel feel a little out of step with others. Herschel Savage takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Herschel feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Herschel Savage has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.

The direction Herschel Savage needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Herschel Savage to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Herschel Savage needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Herschel directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "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.
