Theodore Roosevelt tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Teddy.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Theodore Roosevelt tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Roosevelt withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Teddy's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Quite reserved and somewhat inhibited in his relationships with others, Theodore Roosevelt may feel that he is better off by himself. Teddy feels that he does not fit in very well with people and he finds team-work in groups or associations difficult to achieve.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Theodore Roosevelt 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 Theodore Roosevelt needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Roosevelt's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Theodore Roosevelt has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
