Fichtner is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. William Fichtner takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, William Fichtner may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, William may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and William Fichtner may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Once he decides what he wants to do, William Fichtner will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make William feel a little out of step with others. William Fichtner 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 William feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. William Fichtner 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.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which William Fichtner 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 William Fichtner needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress William Fichtner becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
William Fichtner needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Fichtner also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as William Fichtner tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.

The following are specific activities that will support William Fichtner in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Fichtner, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
William Fichtner should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put himself "out there", be seen and shine. William needs to be willing to take on a leading role. He needs to be a hero - a protagonist in his own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities he possesses. Doing creative work that he is proud of - anything that comes from Fichtner's heart and bears the stamp of Fichtner's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than he is a way for William Fichtner to grow and become more whole himself.
William Fichtner should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. He may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Fichtner's activities and opportunities in life.
