challenges and difficulties
Renoir doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Pierre 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.
Renoir is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Pierre Renoir does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Pierre Renoir better than being with groups of his own peers.
He is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on the one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Pierre Renoir may periodically withdraw from situations and people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Pierre Renoir 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 Pierre Renoir 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, Pierre stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Pierre Renoir 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 Pierre Renoir feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Pierre Renoir calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Pierre Renoir 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 his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Pierre Renoir is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Renoir's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Pierre Renoir 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.
Excessive thinking, rationalizing or talking, the overuse or misuse of Renoir's intellectual abilities and the tendency to allow his energy to be dissipated in trivial activities.
The following are specific activities that will support Pierre Renoir in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Renoir, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Pierre Renoir should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Pierre can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Pierre Renoir has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
He is well mannered and has a kind, helpful and obliging nature. Pierre Renoir is very social, loves to entertain and enjoys talking with people. Pierre feels mentally in tune with others and makes a good companion.
Pierre Renoir has a very affectionate attitude toward others and the capacity to love a lot of people. There probably is a very deep bond between Pierre and his friends, and when he falls in love, Pierre Renoir is likely to love just as deeply.
