Although Ann-Margret approaches life with curiosity and a willingness to learn and try new things (as stated in the previous chapter), at heart she is much more stable and reliable than she appears. Olsson is, in fact, quite solid though she can leave the impression of being rather changeable. She is also not quite as flexible and adaptable as one might assume initially. Olsson can act silly or experiment with a lot of different things, but does not lose perspective or balance.
She is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of her greatest assets. Once Olsson's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Ann-Margret has a very practical nature; she wants to see concrete, tangible results for her efforts, and she is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of her "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for she has a great love of the physical world and she wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Ann-Margret will work long and persistently, she also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and she wants to enjoy what she has worked for. In fact, Olsson can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Ann-Margret also loves the beauty of the natural world and she probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, her needs are simple and she is easy to please. Ann-Margret has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless she is forced to do so. She is not very demanding emotionally, though she does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of her faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Olsson for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Ann-Margret usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Ann-Margret also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. She makes an excellent parent, especially if she follows her instincts more often than "the experts".
Ann-Margret has three major faults: one is her bullheaded obstinacy. The second is her unwillingness to deviate from her safe, predictable routine. And the third is Olsson's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Ann-Margret lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Ann-Margret 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 Olsson.
Ann-Margret is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Ann-Margret does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Olsson, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Olsson is very thorough and takes her time thinking things through. She enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Ann-Margret also could find traveling very rewarding.
