Although she is persistent, practical and determined, as described in the previous chapter, Anna Freud is a complex person who often exhibits the opposite qualities of restlessness and a need for adventure that make it difficult for her to concentrate solely on practical matters. Her practical, down-to-earth approach, combined with her innate adventurous spirit, can make her quite successful at business. Although Anna Freud enjoys a wide circle of friends and a very active life style, she also strives to maintain simplicity and routine in her life.Freud is very inspired by nature's majestic gifts - especially mountains.
She is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. She is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. She needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to her.
To Anna Freud, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for her to decide where to focus her attention and efforts. Anna Freud probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before she settled on a particular career. Or she may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, she is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not her strong points. Freud can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, she has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Anna Freud has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Freud always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Anna Freud has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Anna has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and she likes to theorize and speculate. However, she gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement her theories.
Freud expresses herself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because she does not take herself too seriously, she may not realize how deeply her candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though she may not realize it, Anna's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Anna Freud enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and she does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. She is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares her ideals, her sense of fun and her zest for life would be the right companion for Freud.
Anna Freud invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Anna feels that she needs others in order to be all that she can be, and she is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Anna Freud can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.
Anna 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 Freud many allies and successes in life.
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. Anna Freud confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach her about power and eventually force Freud to claim her own.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to her. Anna Freud probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. She tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Anna's well-being.
