Behind Sen's rather cool, conservative, somewhat impersonal and businesslike demeanor (as described on the previous page), she is much more passionate and emotional. Aparna Sen often conceals her vulnerability beneath a veneer of toughness or indifference.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Aparna Sen is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and she only allows a special few into her inner world. Like a wary animal, she is cautious and mistrustful of those she does not know until "he sniffs them out". She is highly instinctive and intuitive. Aparna Sen usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though she may be unable to clearly articulate why she feels the way she does. Her feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Aparna Sen also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and she forms very intense love bonds and attachments. She is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that she perceives as a threat to her relationship with someone she loves. When Aparna Sen commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Aparna merges with or "marries" the person she loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for her, and often stormy and nasty. When Sen has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Aparna will most certainly never forget the hurt and she often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to her.
Whatever she does, Aparna does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Sen can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Sen can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Aparna Sen emotionally detached and objective. She definitely has a fanatical streak. She is also immensely strong-willed and her tenacity in pursuing her objectives often borders on obsession. She is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Aparna Sen loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Aparna never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Aparna Sen tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Sen. Aparna Sen has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Aparna Sen may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Aparna Sen feels that she has the support of her family or others in her environment for her creative efforts and personal goals, which enables her to act with confidence. She is able to satisfy both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. She is in harmony with herself and is therefore an effective individual.
