challenges and difficulties
Jarvis 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 Cocker.
He is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Jarvis Cocker tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Cocker withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Jarvis' silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Jarvis Cocker strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jarvis Cocker 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 Jarvis Cocker needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Jarvis Cocker is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Jarvis Cocker's growth. Jarvis Cocker needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Jarvis Cocker has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Cocker will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
