challenges and difficulties
Sam Raimi has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Sam is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Sam Raimi often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Raimi's that may inhibit him a great deal. Sam Raimi must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Sam Raimi has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Sam limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Sam Raimi difficult to get to know intimately, as Raimi tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Sam Raimi 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 Sam Raimi 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, Sam stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Sam Raimi 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 Sam Raimi feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Sam Raimi calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Sam Raimi 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 Sam Raimi is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Sam Raimi needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Raimi.
Sam Raimi loves to show off the strength that he possesses and he has a strong desire to dominate others. Sam seems to have an exuberant craving for recognition and importance and a need to influence and lead large groups of people.
Sam Raimi has a very affectionate attitude toward others and the capacity to love a lot of people. There probably is a very deep bond between Sam and his friends, and when he falls in love, Sam Raimi is likely to love just as deeply.
Sam Raimi has a strong desire to break records and set an example for others through his own achievements. Sam tends to spur others on to improve results and his relationships with others serve to better conditions.
