Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Yves Montand 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 Yves Montand 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, Yves stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Yves Montand 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 Yves Montand feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Yves Montand calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Yves Montand needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.

Doing creative work that he is proud of - anything that comes from Montand's heart and bears the stamp of Montand's individuality - is important.
