challenges and difficulties
Abbott is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Roger Abbott may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Roger.
He is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Roger Abbott tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Abbott withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Roger's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Roger Abbott 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 Roger Abbott needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Roger Abbott needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Roger's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Abbott's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Roger Abbott to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Roger Abbott is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Roger Abbott needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Roger Abbott between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Roger Abbott seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Abbott's task.
The following are specific activities that will support Roger Abbott in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Abbott, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Roger Abbott 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. Roger can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Roger Abbott has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
Abbott is inclined to seek out relationships with people who have the same interests and he has a desire to work with them on obtaining mutual objectives. Some of Roger's contacts or introductions could come about suddenly.
