Her optimism and enthusiasm (mentioned in the previous chapter), is balanced by an innate objectivity, detachment, and pragmatic realism that usually keeps her idealistic ventures on a sound course. Though she appears confident and positive, Annie Wilson is often quite skeptical and much more cautious than she lets on. And while it is true that Wilson likes to play, she is also serious about her work and commitments.
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 Wilson. Annie Wilson 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.
Annie Wilson has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Annie Wilson 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. Annie 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. Annie Wilson 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, Annie Wilson 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 Wilson.
Wilson's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Annie Wilson has a clear sense of her own self and she therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who she is and what she wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Wilson can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Annie Wilson feels a need to be in control of her own life and she can be too self-involved, too immersed in her own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Annie Wilson often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Annie has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Annie sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Annie really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Annie Wilson 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.
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Annie Wilson cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Annie finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Wilson to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Annie Wilson has a very creative, inventive streak.
With her charm and outgoing personality Annie Wilson has no trouble attracting people and she enjoys pleasant and congenial relationships with them. She may choose social contact with generous or wealthy people and would prefer to live in a beautiful home.
