challenges and difficulties
Garity doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Troy 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.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Troy. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Troy Garity is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Garity wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Troy Garity will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Troy feel a little out of step with others. Troy Garity 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 Troy feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him.

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. Troy Garity needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
