challenges and difficulties
Willis Carrier often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Carrier.
Willis Carrier has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Willis limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Willis Carrier difficult to get to know intimately, as Carrier tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against Willis, and he may have to withstand severe challenges. Willis Carrier will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning him hard and cold hearted in his decisions because of it.
Carrier knows his own shortcomings and is able to overcome many frustrations and limitations. He concentrates on his aims and goes about achieving them, even if he has to sacrifice something for it.
He is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. Feeling very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Willis Carrier shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by himself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Willis Carrier 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 Willis Carrier needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Carrier's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Willis Carrier has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Willis Carrier between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Willis Carrier seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Carrier's task.
Willis Carrier has a tendency to shy away from other people, and he reacts toward others in an almost fearful way. Carrier seems to lack confidence in himself and for this reason may feel that he lacks the ability to adapt easily into relationships with others.
