Zahid Valencia experiences his inner life as a process of growth and maturation, nurtured by his involvement with others and the positive and negative encounters this generates.
Zahid Valencia is a social being oriented toward other people, whose personal interests often mingle with those of his associates or those of the group to which he belongs. Zahid is motivated by a need to work in common with other people and to share life’s pleasures and pain. His commitments to other people are of paramount importance to his personal development. This dependence may present difficulties with individual self-assertion and make it hard for him to make decisions alone. If he wants to achieve inner equilibrium, he must behave in such a way that his actions yield benefits to others as well as himself.
Zahid Valencia finds interpersonal activities to be quite stimulating, but his inner need for security may prevent him from engaging in them overtly. He is highly receptive to the inner natures of others, seeking to form close bonds with them in order to gain psychological support in his quest for self-discovery. If Zahid evaluated his psychological development, he would place more value on human warmth, intimacy, and the need to share than on intellectual understanding or personal freedom of expression.
Zahid Valencia is ambitious and has a natural tendency to better himself socially and intellectually. His ideas and aspirations are grandiose, and he will be eager to share them with others. Although he is kind-hearted, he enjoys being in control of situations. He derives great fulfillment from the role of the protector and will surround himself with people who need him. He is eager to obtain recognition and honor, but extremely fearful of disgrace. His visions derive from his ambitions, often aglow with idealism. However, they may be somewhat unrealistic and impractical. Social recognition and esteem are essential to him, and he will demonstrate an amazing ability to achieve the high goals he sets for himself.
Zahid Valencia is a realist. He approaches life pragmatically, and even his feelings are based on rational, tangible evidence. He bases his judgements on past experience and is prone to skepticism. A hard worker, he takes pride in his own endeavors and has a personal concept of his productivity. His possessions help him assert himself as an individual and act as an antidote to any feelings of insecurity. As a result, material accomplishments may preoccupy him more than either love as a passion or intellectual or philosophical considerations. Nevertheless, he becomes attached to anything which offers him certainty.
You try to understand other people’s feelings, but find it hard to do. You find it difficult to understand your own feelings, and find the emotional world difficult to understand. You see the emotional world as a foreign territory, perhaps fraught with hidden dangers. Becoming familiar with it would present more drawbacks than advantages. As a result, you may appear to be hard or aloof. You might struggle to establish a rewarding relationship, as you seek special individuals to bond with. If you were able to accept and understand your own emotions, you would have an easier time grappling with other people’s feelings. You have a strong desire for emotional independence, and might have trouble seeing other people’s emotional needs. You might even be the first to deny that such needs are real. As a result, your dependency on others is unconscious. Because it is seen as such a threat, it is repressed. Actually, although you offer conscious resistance to anyone who tries to lure you out of your emotional bubble, you are always making timid, half-conscious forays into the world of feelings, because your loneliness and fear are so unbearable.
