challenges and difficulties
Finch either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Jon Finch may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Jon Finch feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Jon Finch does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Jon Finch 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 direction Jon Finch needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.

Jon Finch has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs.

Social skills and graces and what Jon Finch calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Jon Finch needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
