Serious and responsible, she tries to carry the world on her shoulders and rarely let others know that she needs help and support. Ayn Rand denies or ignores her own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept her if she appears "weak". She is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and will tell herself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Ayn Rand needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with her "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, she may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. Her feelings and loyalties run deep, but she often does not let people know how much she cares. Ayn Rand also needs to learn to relax, enjoy herself, and play sometimes.
Ayn Rand has a sympathetic nature and instinctively reaches out to people in need of help. Rand also has a deeply ingrained tendency to want to improve or "fix" other people's lives, which can be annoying to the person who has no desire to be changed or "helped" in this way. For Ayn, affection and caring must be expressed in tangible acts or service of some kind.
Ayn Rand has a buoyant, cheerful disposition and she reaches out to others in a warm, open, friendly way. Her emotional generosity and lack of pettiness is well known among her circle of friends, and people often seek Ayn out for help, sympathy, or advice. Ayn Rand is always willing to overlook others' faults, and she overdoes sometimes her charitableness.
Powerful and complex emotions stir Ayn Rand, and her emotional life and closest personal relationships are apt to be tumultuous until Ayn does some deep soul searching. Buried feelings and memories that she does not want to deal with may surface at unexpected times. Holding in fears, secrets, or "taboo" thoughts and feelings can only serve to intensify them, and Ayn Rand needs to share them with someone who is sympathetic, trustworthy, and fairly objective. Ridding herself of emotional compulsions and deeply embedded patterns that do not serve her can be tremendously liberating, if Ayn Rand is willing to do the necessary inner house cleaning.
Her emotional excitability is very strong and Rand tends to be high-strung and impatient. Ayn Rand knows what she wants to accomplish, she forges ahead and brooks no interference. Domineering and forceful, it is not easy for Ayn Rand to back down gracefully when she is confronted.
Her emotional life tends to be a bit strange and she is likely to fantasize a lot and to weave a web of illusions. Easily swayed by the needs of others, Ayn Rand must learn not to take on others problems and also guard against others deceiving her.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Ayn Rand gives very selflessly and devotedly to those she loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon her. More compassionate than passionate, Ayn Rand may become romantically involved with someone because they need love and she wants to help them, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
She is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Ayn feels she can have deep spiritual relationships with. Ayn Rand idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
Ayn is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand her horizons, teach her something, or show Rand places and worlds she has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with her love partner is important to her.
Also, Ayn Rand feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with her own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of hers.
Her love feelings are easily aroused and her romantic relationships begin with a sudden electric attraction, but they often end abruptly, and Rand may be in and out of love relationships - especially in her younger years. Ayn Rand craves emotional excitement and she needs to feel spontaneous and free, so she may avoid making firm personal commitments. Unusual or nontraditional forms of love and relationships appeal to Rand, and she is attracted to unique, creative, or unstable people.
