challenges and difficulties
Linder doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Max 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.
Max may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Max Linder is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Linder wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
He is suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. Linder is quick to pick up on social charades and insincerity and avoids the limelight and glamour. Max Linder is direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate his innermost feelings and thoughts.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Max Linder 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 Max Linder 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 Max Linder 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.
Max Linder 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. Linder also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Max Linder tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
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 Max Linder between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Max Linder 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 Linder's task.
