Though Alicia Keys seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is also quite idealistic, as described below. She may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Alicia Keys has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Alicia Keys cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Keys can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Alicia has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Alicia Keys probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Alicia Keys seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Alicia makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Alicia Keys thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Alicia Keys stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Alicia Keys was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Alicia has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Keys. Alicia Keys has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Alicia Keys may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Alicia Keys feels that she has the support of her family or others in her environment for her creative efforts and personal goals, which enables her to act with confidence. She is able to satisfy both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. She is in harmony with herself and is therefore an effective individual.
Alicia has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Keys many allies and successes in life.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Keys' optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Alicia Keys tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Realistic and practical, Alicia Keys sets goals for herself that are modest enough for her to actually achieve. She is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Keys possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Alicia Keys also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling her obligations. Keys often does things because she feels it is expected of her.
Keys always seems to find the right words to verbalize her feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Alicia Keys also has a keen sense of beauty and she probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Alicia blends charm and energy. Alicia Keys has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. She may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Alicia, and her romantic relationships are passionate.
