challenges and difficulties
Ned Brower has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Brower knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Ned Brower may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Ned must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Ned Brower takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Ned can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Ned Brower is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Brower can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Ned Brower strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
He is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress his inner excitability or irritability. However, Brower can be somewhat self-willed and determined to be independent. If Ned Brower feels that someone is holding him down too much, he may suddenly break up the relationship.
Sometimes circumstances appear to be working against Ned, and he may have to confront major challenges. Ned Brower will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, thereby rendering him hard and cold hearted in his decision-making.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ned Brower 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 Ned Brower 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 Ned Brower copes with stress. Ned Brower 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 Ned Brower to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Ned Brower to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Ned Brower has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
Brower always looks to establish relationships with groups or associations and has the ability to blend in unobtrusively. Ned Brower has a way of integrating the needs and feelings of others, while taking into consideration the proceedings of the association.
