challenges and difficulties
Jackie Cooper takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Jackie enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Jackie Cooper also fears entrapment in close relationships.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Jackie Cooper understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Jackie Cooper is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Jackie Cooper will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Jackie feel a little out of step with others. Jackie Cooper 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 Jackie feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Jackie Cooper 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 side of Jackie Cooper that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at times Jackie finds it hard to relax. Jackie Cooper may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Cooper's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
Basically shy, Jackie may become a bit inhibited when talking with other people. Jackie Cooper tends to withdraw from others and likes to live a humble, quiet live in seclusion. He may get involved with a group of a secretive nature, although Cooper is not one to join groups in general.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jackie Cooper 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 Jackie Cooper 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 Jackie Cooper copes with stress. Jackie Cooper 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 Jackie Cooper to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Jackie Cooper is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Jackie Cooper needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Cooper.
Jackie Cooper seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps he is burdened by family conditions that weigh him down. Jackie prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
Jackie Cooper tends to pick his friends and associates very carefully and is always on the look-out for responsible and congenial people. This enables Jackie Cooper to feel secure with his colleagues and he enjoys good relationships with them.
Jackie has an inner need to share his experiences with others and he talks to his friends and acquaintances in a very open manner. Socially minded, Jackie Cooper likes to cultivate close relationships, especially with women.
Jackie Cooper tends to have deep bonds with the people he associates with and is likely to encounter some unusual or fated relationships. Some of his contacts could be with very influential people who may be of help to Cooper in the future.
