challenges and difficulties
Robert Schumann has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Schumann is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Robert Schumann takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Schumann 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 Robert Schumann 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 Robert Schumann better than being with groups of his own peers.
Robert Schumann takes his ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Robert has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but he can also become so involved in his imaginative, idealistic pursuits that he looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
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, Robert Schumann may periodically withdraw from situations and people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Robert Schumann 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 Robert Schumann 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, Robert stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Robert Schumann 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 Robert Schumann feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Robert Schumann calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Robert Schumann 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 fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Robert Schumann is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Robert Schumann needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Schumann.
