challenges and difficulties
Inge doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. William 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.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, William Inge 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 Inge may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
His ambition and desire for power could be somewhat out of proportion and Inge can be quite ruthless in dealing with obstacles and difficulties he may be faced with. William Inge must learn to control his temper and be willing to compromise.
His outlook on life is inclined to be somewhat negative and William Inge tries to avoid relationships and social interaction as much as possible. There is a morose side to William's nature that makes him feel that no one cares about him, that life is difficult and perhaps not even worthwhile.
William Inge tends to be very sensitive to his surroundings and is strongly influenced by the prevailing conditions around him. William may feels that he has more obligations than he can properly handle, and that it is hopeless to even try.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which William Inge 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 Inge needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to William Inge - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Inge tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
William Inge is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Inge's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
William Inge needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for William Inge to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. William Inge has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The following are specific activities that will support William Inge in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Inge, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
William Inge should become a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems he faces. It is in Inge's best interest to act on his own behalf instead of stalling, waiting or hoping someone else will do it for him. William Inge needs to assert himself openly and courageously and not to be afraid to make mistakes or stumble; there are bound to be a few trial runs to any new initiative. William needs to foster a healthy fighting spirit, pick himself up, and go! He also should learn to appreciate conflict and confrontation as a means to grow.
