challenges and difficulties
Scorsese doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Martin 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. Martin Scorsese 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 Martin Scorsese 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 prefers to work alone rather than with other people. Content on his own, Scorsese tends to become inhibited when he is with others, especially women. Martin Scorsese may feel that the effort required to be with others is too great and probably not even worth it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Martin Scorsese 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 Martin Scorsese needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Martin Scorsese copes with stress. Martin Scorsese also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Martin Scorsese to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Martin Scorsese between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Martin Scorsese 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 Scorsese's task.
