challenges and difficulties
Clark doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Ron 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.
Ron Clark takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Ron can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Ron Clark is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Clark can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Basically shy, Ron may become a bit inhibited when talking with other people. Ron Clark tends to withdraw from others and likes to live a humble, quiet life in seclusion. He may get involved with a group of a secretive nature, although Clark is not generally one to join groups.
Because he lacks self-confidence, Ron Clark has the feeling that his luck has abandoned him. He is inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, place too much emphasis on wishful thinking, and then get disappointed when nothing happens.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ron Clark 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 Ron Clark needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ron Clark has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Ron Clark 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. Ron Clark needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
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 Ron Clark between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Ron Clark 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 Clark's task.
