challenges and difficulties
Jerry Zucker has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Zucker knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Jerry Zucker may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Jerry must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Jerry Zucker takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Zucker a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Jerry Zucker and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Zucker will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Because he is somewhat inhibited when initiating relationships with others, Jerry Zucker may prefer to be by himself. Jerry may feel that he does not fit in very well with others and as a result, may have difficulties with team-work.
Jerry Zucker tends to have a pessimistic outlook and he seems to be plagued by deep inner conflicts, which could severely undermine his strength. Self-critical and uncertain about his goals, Jerry feels that he cannot live up to his ideals and ends up disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jerry Zucker 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 Jerry Zucker needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Jerry Zucker - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Zucker tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Jerry Zucker is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Zucker's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Jerry Zucker needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Jerry Zucker between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Jerry Zucker seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Zucker's task.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Jerry Zucker back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
