challenges and difficulties
Namath doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Broadway Joe 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.
Joe Namath takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Namath 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 Joe Namath and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Namath will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Joe Namath 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 Joe Namath needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Joe Namath's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Namath's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Joe Namath is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Broadway Joe should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Joe Namath can offer the world at large.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Joe Namath has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Namath 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.
