challenges and difficulties
Barber either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Tony Barber may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Tony Barber feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Tony Barber works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Tony Barber will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Tony feel a little out of step with others. Tony Barber takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Tony feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Tony Barber has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Tony Barber tends to be emotionally shy, sensitive and awkward and may have difficulty expressing his true feelings, even when his affection is real. One of Barber's parents may have been too strict and unloving, and as a result, Tony may fear close relationships.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and Tony may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Tony Barber is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationship with his parents.
Tony Barber tends to be very sensitive to his surroundings and is strongly influenced by the prevailing conditions surrounding him. Tony may feel that he has more obligations than he can properly handle, and that it is hopeless to even try.
Tony Barber tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about his direction in life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, he is inclined to worry a lot. Because Barber lacks the confidence to fight back, he may allow himself to become the victim of others.
Tony Barber may often be coerced into doing things that he does not want to do, leaving him frustrated, irritable and touchy. Tony could turn hard and unforgiving toward others and may break up some important relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tony Barber 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 Tony Barber 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, Tony stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Tony Barber 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 Tony Barber feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Tony Barber calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Tony Barber 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 relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Tony Barber has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Barber will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Tony Barber back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Tony Barber tends to over-rely on luck or grace, living for tomorrow and gambling. Tony is overconfident and tends to overextend himself and take on more than is humanly possible. Tony is often dogmatic about his philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
Tony Barber seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps he is burdened by family conditions that weigh him down. Tony prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
He is very social, loves artistic events and entertainment, and has the ability to show his feelings without reservation. Tony Barber probably found joy in learning things early in life and he stays close to his family and other relations.
