challenges and difficulties
Joyce 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. James Joyce 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 James Joyce feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
James Joyce tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Joyce withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes James' silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
James Joyce tends to suppress his feelings and may be a bit inhibited in love relationships. Often times he may feel rejected or he may give the impression of rejecting others himself. Perhaps his mother or father has a difficult time showing their affection.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which James Joyce 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 James Joyce needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for James Joyce to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. James Joyce needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until James 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.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Joyce's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his public life and career that James Joyce is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Joyce's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how James Joyce achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
Joyce is able to achieve good cooperation with people, and others see him as a welcome comrade. James likes to work hand in hand with everyone and has an excellent sense of team-work.
His relationships with others could be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, James Joyce avoids opposition and escapes his responsibilities. In his relationships he is likely to choose people who are asocial.
