Although Amy Smart appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". Smart sometimes feels torn between these two facets of her character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Amy Smart often think that she is a "softy", but later find out that she is strong willed and pursues her goals aggressively.
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. Amy Smart 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 Smart's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Amy Smart 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. Amy likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Amy Smart 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, Amy Smart also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Smart, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Amy Smart believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Amy Smart 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 Smart's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Amy Smart to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Amy Smart would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Amy Smart to do so.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Smart.
Amy Smart has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Amy Smart 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. Amy Smart has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Amy Smart often feels that she needs to fight to get what she wants, and she tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. She is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
At times Amy Smart may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of her. When her life is becoming too predictable, Amy may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Amy Smart which needs to be expressed now and then.
She is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on her agenda. Amy Smart confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach her about power and eventually force Smart to claim her own.
She is warm-hearted, kind, generous and very popular, especially with the opposite sex. Smart's happy feelings rub off onto others and everyone enjoys being with her. Due to a protective and encouraging upbringing, her relationships with her parents are good.
Smart seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Amy Smart tends to withdraw and her outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Amy Smart should beware of letting her emotional tension react to her physical well-being.
