Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Taylor Hanson 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 Taylor Hanson needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Taylor Hanson is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility.
