In addition to Bai's rather conservative and self-controlled demeanor (mentioned in the previous chapter), she has a highly developed sense of aesthetics, poise and gracefulness, as described below. Bai has refined taste and manners, but she may find it difficult to really let her hair down or deviate from certain internal constraints. Bai Ling has a knack for keeping things simple yet beautiful.
Harmony and balance are her keynotes. Bai Ling instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and she is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Bai does all she can to avoid conflict and discord. Her spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and she often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Ling since she can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make her own decisions. Ling will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. She prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on her own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Bai Ling, and she has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Bai Ling invests a great deal of her energy in personal love relationships and she is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Bai Ling seeks a partner who is her equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. She makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and she enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Ling perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Bai Ling appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in her personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to her. If Bai Ling fights about anything, it is often about something she feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Bai. She believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Bai Ling also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Ling dresses and furnishes her home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to her.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Ling.
Bai Ling has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Bai Ling 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.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, she identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Bai Ling insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Bai needs a lifestyle that allows her to be spontaneous. She often feels that she is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
Bai Ling feels physically strong and fit and has a healthy sex-life. Her actions are governed by a strong sense of honor and integrity. Ling is ambitious with a talent for organizing and a strong desire to succeed, insuring by that her professional success.
