challenges and difficulties
Peter Ustinov 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 Ustinov knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Peter Ustinov may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Peter 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.
He is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Peter Ustinov tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Ustinov withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Peter's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
He prefers to work alone rather than with others. Content on his own, Ustinov tends to become inhibited when he is with others, especially women. Peter Ustinov may feel that the effort required to be with others is too great and probably not even worth it.
Peter should take care not to trust others too blindly. Some of his friends or associates may be untruthful and try to deceive him, resulting in great disappointments or even losses for Ustinov.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Peter Ustinov 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 Peter Ustinov needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Peter stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Peter Ustinov has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Peter Ustinov feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Peter Ustinov calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Peter Ustinov needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Ustinov's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Peter Ustinov needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Peter Ustinov back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being excessively egocentric or proud, needing personal recognition and applause, wanting to be center stage all the time, needing to be important and special.
