Though Arianna Huffington seems powerful and intense in a quiet sort of way (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is really quite soft, sentimental and vulnerable inside.
Arianna has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Huffington to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Huffington tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Arianna likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Arianna Huffington has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Arianna Huffington than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Arianna Huffington takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Arianna Huffington feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Arianna Huffington needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Arianna Huffington becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Arianna Huffington functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Huffington often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Arianna Huffington also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Huffington's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Arianna Huffington craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable or taboo. Arianna may hide her interests or inclinations, except from those who know her very intimately. Arianna Huffington is rarely content with herself and her life, and she has an inner urge to continually delve deeper than ever before. Arianna is also highly interested in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Arianna Huffington tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Arianna Huffington has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Arianna Huffington 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. Arianna has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Arianna sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Arianna really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Arianna Huffington 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.
While Arianna Huffington does have a strong drive, she frequently holds herself back. One of her challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in her life (or her own internal caution and resistance!).
Arianna Huffington has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Huffington also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about herself which will win her the confidence of others, especially her superiors.
Along with her energy and drive, Arianna Huffington has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Huffington, as well as a doer and a fighter. Arianna wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for her.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Arianna Huffington also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Arianna is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Arianna Huffington is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Huffington may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
She is strong-willed, forceful and independent. Huffington knows what she wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. Arianna Huffington tends to judge herself and others quite severely, but she is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
Huffington has an intrinsic creative and artistic ability and an unusual sense of form. Arianna Huffington also has a deep need for relationships that offer affection and can be quite intense when by inner compulsion she feels drawn to someone. Her relationships tend to be peculiar in some way.
