Behind MacGraw's rather solid, conservative appearance (as described on the previous page), she really is a go-getter. While Ali MacGraw seems rather soft, there is actually a lot of fight and spunk in her. Her practical and down-to-earth side may be at odds with the part of MacGraw that wants action, exploration, adventure and excitement, but these two facets of her nature can also complement one another. Her pioneering and enterprising spirit is liable to get Ali MacGraw in trouble several times, but eventually her determination to see a project through will succeed.
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Ali MacGraw believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are MacGraw's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Ali MacGraw craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Ali likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Ali MacGraw loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Ali MacGraw also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate.

Ali MacGraw believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Ali MacGraw hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving MacGraw's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Ali MacGraw to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Ali MacGraw would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Ali MacGraw to do so.
Ali MacGraw tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where her efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting herself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for MacGraw.
