If Gil Gerard wants to improve and transform himself, the first step is to become aware of the weaknesses which may be holding him back and preventing his evolution. These include his excessive independence, his fear of commitment, his eccentricity, his instability, and his fear of intimacy.
Gil Gerard sometimes senses a conflict between his desire for social and professional success and his need for a stable, secure domestic life. He is deeply committed to both ideas and does not always succeed in reconciling their schedules and demands on him. Sometimes it feels as though he will never be able to find a balance. However, no job promotion will really satisfy him if he has neglected his most intimate needs and desires. Although it sometimes seems easier to him to climb the rungs of the career ladder out there in the real world, if he merely sacrifices his domestic life, he is only trying to fool himself. He should accept the fact that his domestic life is the true basis and foundation of his development. All his career endeavors and success will be even more rewarding if they are supported by a safe, warm personal life.
Gil Gerard’s personality is ruled by his mind, which uses his energy to conceive and create on the abstract plane. He is much more of a pragmatist than an idealist and does become passionately engaged in human relationships, preferring a variety of casual contacts which demand little of him in return. As a result, it is sometimes difficult for him to remain in close emotional rapport with another person without feeling hemmed in and stifled. With his peers, his charm makes him popular, and he attracts all sorts of helpful friendships. Due to the ease with which he moves in society and his eloquence, he has undeniable talents for communications and teaching.
