This Trait is part of the Strength of Concentration, A Design of Determination, linking Drive & Stamina (Trait 52) to the Energy Resource (Gate 9). Gate 52 is part of the Collective Understanding Circuit (Logic) with the keynote of sharing.
Trait 52 is energy under pressure that is focused on assessment, the raw power to concentrate. There is a passive tension in this connection from Drive & Stamina that is looking toward Trait 9 for an outlet. Once the 52nd Trait finds something it deeply identifies with, something worthwhile to channel this energy toward, the tension is balanced between Drive & Stamina's pressure to keep us moving forward, and Trait 52's power to help us sit still and concentrate. Before this balance is reached, however, we can find ourselves vacillating between restlessness and depression, bouncing from one thing to the next, unable to find the self discipline to withdraw once again into our stillness and concentrate.
There is no physical outlet within Trait 52 that can direct or relieve this passive tension within us except to focus it. Without Trait 9, it is difficult to know what activity or details to concentrate it on.
