John Maynard Keynes
challenges and difficulties
Keynes doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. John 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 is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. John Maynard Keynes understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But John Maynard Keynes is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
He is suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. Keynes is quick to pick up on social charades and insincerity and avoids the limelight and glamour. John Maynard Keynes is direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate his innermost feelings and thoughts.
John Maynard Keynes tends to be shy, sensitive and stiff with his emotions and may have difficulty expressing his true feelings, even though his affection for someone is there. One of Keynes' parents may have been too strict and unloving, and so John may fear close relationships.
His physical vitality and mental energy tend to be somewhat low. For this reason John Maynard Keynes should try to avoid any unnecessary emotional and physical stress and follow good health habits in order to maintain overall resistance to illness.
John Maynard Keynes 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.
John Maynard Keynes tends to be very sensitive to his surroundings and is strongly influenced by the prevailing conditions around him. John may feels that he has more obligations than he can properly handle, and that it is hopeless to even try.
His attitude toward life is quite serious and he is very thorough. John has the need to be by himself and think out everything very carefully before he takes action. John Maynard Keynes may enjoy doing some type of creative art work shaped from hard or heavy materials.
His disposition is somewhat melancholic and John Maynard Keynes could have a rather pessimistic outlook. John has an inner need to be alone and to deeply meditate on his thoughts. John Maynard Keynes takes life seriously and may have been taught early on to learn from his mistakes.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which John Maynard Keynes 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 John Maynard Keynes needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress John Maynard Keynes becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
John Maynard Keynes needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Keynes also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as John Maynard Keynes tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that John Maynard Keynes is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Keynes' relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold John Maynard Keynes back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in his life.
John has an extremely magnetic personality along with strong sexual attraction. John Maynard Keynes tends to put his heart and soul into his work and may prefer to work with partners of the opposite sex.
His relationships with others could be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, John Maynard Keynes avoids opposition and escapes his responsibilities. In his relationships he is likely to choose people who are asocial.
