Her desire for harmonious relationships and surroundings is so strong that she avoids personal confrontation or any expression of intense, unpleasant emotions. Annette Bening is an idealist who would like to paint the world in pastel colors, and live in peace and harmony with others at all times. She is able to see points of similarity and unity with people who are vastly different from her, and befriend many different types of people. She is a considerate and thoughtful friend, and has a real flair for making others feel accepted and appreciated. Inwardly, Annette Bening is often torn with indecision and is much more at odds with herself than others would ever guess based on her flawless disposition.
She is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for her belongings give Annette Bening a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to her. Antiques or things with sentimental value from Annette's past are especially dear to her.
Annette Bening may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of her immediate circle.
She needs love, affection, nurturing and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as Annette Bening is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". Annette has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make her cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation. Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for Annette - one that can be enormously satisfying if she can achieve it, and a source of great sadness if she cannot.
Annette Bening tends to be touchy, defensive and rather territorial, and if she perceives a threat to her family or home or personal safety, she can be quite aggressive. Sometimes Annette feels out of sorts and hostile for no apparent reason, and this is usually due to unexpressed, unresolved anger from the past. Annette Bening also has a desire to lead, to compete, or to be a free agent, that she is not entirely conscious of. It is good for Bening to have benign outlets and ways to let off steam on a regular basis, such as demanding physical work or athletics. Otherwise Annette Bening may be rather hard to live with, even abusive in her relationships.
Although she is impetuous and easily provoked (as mentioned above), Annette Bening also has a good-natured, live-and-let-live attitude and a sense of humor, which balances it all out. While hotheaded at times, she is usually a good sport.
She is tolerant and forgiving and always ready to overlook mistakes and give others a second chance. Annette Bening expects, and draws out, the best from people and she enjoys making others comfortable and happy. Because of her emotional generosity, her life is rich with friends, and often financial blessings as well.
Although Bening gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), she also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure, which enable Annette Bening to rein in some of her more aggressive tendencies. This side of her is described below.
There is another side to Annette Bening as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers her good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
She is dedicated to the people she cares about and conscientious about meeting her responsibilities, especially to family. Family solidarity and cohesiveness are very important to Annette Bening and so, therefore, are the traditions, rituals, and memories that keep the bonds strong.
Annette Bening is apt to do more than her fair share in the family, to go the extra mile, but for the most part this is satisfying rather than burdensome to her.
Annette Bening has a positive emotional outlook and cultivating spiritual relationships with others is important to her. She is likely to have a big circle of friends and acquaintances and she loves to give and receive social invitations.
She is inclined to be somewhat gloomy, is easily offended, and she tries to suppress the jealousy she may feel. Annette Bening may have been brought up to sacrifice and forego a lot of things, making her a bit hard and unyielding in later life.
Her love feelings and desires are easily aroused but she may find it difficult to sustain her romantic interest in relationships after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". Annette Bening enjoys a dynamic partner with a strong independent streak, and she does not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. Annette wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
Annette Bening craves very intense, deep, emotional relationships, and would even prefer stormy, tumultuous relationships to ones that are smooth but lacking vitality and passion. Annette loves wholeheartedly and expects all-consuming, total devotion and attention from her partner. Casual, light relationships hold no appeal for Bening.
Money is liable to be an issue in her life, not because she does not have it, but because Annette Bening cannot or will not hold onto it. Annette Bening has a freehanded, generous, open attitude and would prefer to spend and enjoy and partake in the pleasures of the moment than to save, discipline or budget herself. At Bening's worst, she wants an easy ride and friends will often let Annette freeload because she is such an agreeable, friendly and pleasant sort. Alternatively, Bening could let other people take advantage of her hospitality and tolerance.
Bening also avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it is too much trouble or too petty. Annette Bening just wants to have a good time.
Annette's pleasure-loving nature and her emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing her affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Annette Bening is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times she is far more contained as described here. Because she is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Bening is to being left out or unappreciated.
Loyalty, fidelity and security are very important to Annette Bening in love relationships. She is cautious about giving her heart away but true to the one who does win her love. Her tastes are simple, even austere, and she does not appreciate frivolity. Bening is interested in a person's character and inner qualities far more than in her or her appearance. Casual or superficial relationships do not interest Annette Bening at all, for love seems to get deeper and richer and more satisfying for her with time.
Annette Bening loves deeply, passionately and wholeheartedly, and others may find her intensity either extremely attractive or threatening. She is charismatic and can have a powerful emotional impact on others, especially those of the opposite sex. Bening may use her attractiveness to manipulate others, sometimes without even realizing it.
She is very affectionate in her relationships and tends to form deep attachments with other people. Annette Bening may also enjoy contacts with the arts and may join associations that are connected with artistic events or cultural exchanges.
She is inclined to do everything with love and may even be in love with her profession. At times Annette Bening is apt to consider her work as a substitute for a partner, but she could also show some narcissistic tendencies.
Her attitude could be a bit too optimistic, especially in regards to love relationships. Annette Bening loves to day-dream and may have many romantic and erotic imaginations that never materialize. She may have a flair for writing beautiful love poems.
Her attitude is positive and harmonious and Annette Bening impresses others as a very caring individual. She is very friendly and pleasant when she is with other people and knows how to make herself popular. She is likely to have a very happy family life.
Annette has great self-discipline and knows exactly what she can demand of herself. Her love relationships are inclined to be connected with a lot of problems and Annette Bening may wish to give up love altogether and retreat to a life of solitude and seclusion.
