Patrice 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.
Patrice Estanguet has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Patrice limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Patrice Estanguet difficult to get to know intimately, as Estanguet tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
He is subject to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may have sudden, unexpected consequences and undesirable results. As he lacks the capacity to adapt, Patrice Estanguet may encounter considerable tension in his relationships and is likely to have disputes or even violent fights with others.

The direction Patrice Estanguet needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Patrice Estanguet has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Patrice Estanguet needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Patrice Estanguet needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Patrice Estanguet has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
