challenges and difficulties
Charcot doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Jean-Martin is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Jean-Martin Charcot does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Jean-Martin Charcot must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
The side of Jean-Martin Charcot 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 Jean-Martin finds it hard to relax. Jean-Martin Charcot 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.

The direction Jean-Martin Charcot needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Jean-Martin Charcot to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Jean-Martin Charcot needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Jean-Martin 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 Charcot's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.

Doing creative work that he is proud of - anything that comes from Charcot's heart and bears the stamp of Charcot's individuality - is important.
