Behind Davis' rather prudent, shrewd and guarded manner (described in the previous chapter), she is really kind, altruistic and idealistic. She is also much more vulnerable than she appears. She is very prudent and sharp in handling some of her affairs, but occasionally Davis' deep-rooted idealism can cloud her vision. Moreover, she may wage an internal battle, swinging between traditional, conservative pragmatism and lofty idealism.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Adelle Davis as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Davis may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Adelle Davis usually keeps to herself.
Adelle shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Adelle has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Adelle Davis sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Davis tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Adelle has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Davis will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Davis tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Adelle Davis does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Adelle Davis has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Davis more than it bothers her.
Ownership gives Adelle Davis a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Adelle also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
She is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. Her spiritual values color Adelle's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Adelle Davis tends to think and act bravely and has a positive and firm demeanor. Adelle has what it takes to make her own way in life. She may be a bit excitable, but never shy away from a good argument.
Adelle Davis probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Adelle never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But she also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
Davis alternates between aggression and apathy and sometimes feels that she is unable to meet all the demands made on her. Once Adelle Davis becomes aware of what she needs to do, however, she is capable of working long and hard, not giving up until her work is done.
She may lack direction and drive and tends to compare herself unfavorably to others. Davis alternates between caution and unrealistic expectations and lets others expect too much of her. But Adelle Davis plods forward steadily, reaching success later in life.
