Although it may seem that she is just patiently plodding along, Amerie 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 Rogers. Amerie 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.
Amerie has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Amerie 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. Amerie 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. Amerie 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, Amerie 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 Rogers.
Rogers' strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Rogers is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world.
Amerie is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Amerie tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Amerie has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
She is an original! Amerie radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things she is interested in, and conveys this to others, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Amerie does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Amerie often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Rogers is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Amerie tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Amerie both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
