The way Arlene Dahl comes across to others is very congruent with her true nature so "what she sees is what you get". The description below reinforces what you read about Arlene in the previous chapter.
Proud and intensely individual, Arlene Dahl really wants to stand out, to be the very best she can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for her unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to her, and she cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Arlene Dahl must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Arlene Dahl needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Arlene has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Arlene Dahl also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Arlene Dahl, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and she secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Arlene wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. She needs someone to believe in her and her dreams. Though Dahl appears radiantly self-confident and independent, she is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. She cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Arlene Dahl also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Arlene Dahl loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in her relationships. She is also immensely loyal and will defend her loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend her pride or betray her trust. However, Arlene Dahl likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Arlene needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Dahl's strengths are her zest and love for life, her creative power and her warm and generous heart. Her primary fault is her tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression she is making and with her own creative self-expression that she forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around her.
Arlene Dahl 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, Dahl can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Arlene Dahl 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.
Arlene Dahl 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. Arlene has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Arlene sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Arlene really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Sensitive and imaginative, she is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Arlene Dahl is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Arlene has an abundance of dreams, visions and longings, but does not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them materialize. Gentle, idealistic and peace loving, Arlene often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Arlene has an ethereal quality about her.
Arlene Dahl has a basic need to fit in with others and is always willing to cooperate. She enjoys working with others as a team and is a well liked comrade.
She is a bit impulsive and excitable and wants things done quickly. Arlene Dahl tends to be very impatient with anyone who is slower or less energetic than she is. Dahl will fight for what she wants but should guard against mishaps or accidents.
Her comprehension is exceptional and Arlene Dahl reacts to everything very quickly. Dahl shows deep respect for knowledge and feels that she must learn everything there is to know. Studying probably was encouraged early on and Arlene Dahl was raised to be successful.
