challenges and difficulties
Stephan has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Jenkins.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Stephan Jenkins tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Jenkins withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Stephan's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Stephan has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Stephan Jenkins needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Jenkins will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
A deep thinker, Stephan Jenkins has good powers of concentration. But Jenkins thinks slowly and takes his time making decisions, which is likely to be based on practical and economical methods. Having little to say, Stephan Jenkins prefers to talk about serious or sad things.
Stephan Jenkins tends to be somewhat gloomy and may feel that life is difficult and that his will is blocked in some way. Stephan could find it hard to make decisions and to concentrate on his goals and may consider them not worthwhile.
He is inclined to be quite reserved and cautious in his relationships with others. But Stephan may also have an exaggerated regard for other peoples views and could give them more credence than they are worth.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Stephan Jenkins 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 Stephan Jenkins needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Stephan Jenkins 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 Stephan's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Jenkins' understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Stephan Jenkins to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Stephan Jenkins is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Stephan Jenkins needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Stephan Jenkins to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Stephan Jenkins has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.

Stephan Jenkins should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Stephan Jenkins has to learn to trust his own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. He needs to care for himself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
