Although it may seem that she is just patiently plodding along, Amanda Peet is actually quite shrewd and has a clear purpose in mind. She is far more astute and ambitious than her rather gentle, forbearing manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Peet. Amanda Peet will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Amanda Peet has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Amanda Peet seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Amanda has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Amanda Peet has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Amanda Peet plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Peet.
Peet's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Peet. Amanda Peet 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. Amanda Peet may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, her life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Amanda Peet is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Peet has a rebellious streak and she often feels she is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to her.
