challenges and difficulties
Nobile doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Umberto 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.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Umberto Nobile does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Umberto Nobile must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Umberto Nobile tends to have inner conflicts between his responsibilities and what he would like to do. Nobile may weigh his duties favorably against his desires, making it very difficult for him to be truly happy.
He is susceptible to deception by others and may encounter people who dissuade him from his objectives and try to use his vulnerability to their advantage. Umberto Nobile should watch his relationships very carefully so he will not get seriously hurt or disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Umberto Nobile 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 Umberto Nobile 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, Umberto stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Umberto Nobile 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 Umberto Nobile feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Umberto Nobile calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Umberto Nobile 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 trying to strike a balance between Nobile's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Umberto Nobile needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The following are specific activities that will support Umberto Nobile in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Nobile, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Umberto Nobile should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Umberto can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Umberto Nobile has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
