challenges and difficulties
Wendy has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave her feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with her peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Melvoin.
She is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with her duty, her public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Wendy Melvoin understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.

Wendy Melvoin tends to be emotionally shy, sensitive and awkward and may have difficulty expressing her true feelings, even when her affection is real. One of Melvoin's parents may have been too strict and unloving, and as a result, Wendy may fear close relationships.
She is quite cool and reserved in matters of love relationships and tends to hold back her inclination for love. Somewhat inhibited with regard to relationships, Wendy Melvoin is inclined to feel that she is better off staying by herself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Wendy Melvoin instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Wendy Melvoin needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Wendy Melvoin is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering her tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Wendy Melvoin's growth. Wendy Melvoin needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Wendy Melvoin needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Wendy Melvoin should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Wendy Melvoin back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing or talking, the overuse or misuse of Melvoin's intellectual abilities and the tendency to allow her energy to be dissipated in trivial activities.
