Although she has a very strong need to shine and feel special (as described on the previous page), she also has a rather humble, self-critical side, as discussed below. She may appear proud and confident, but she is really much less so inside. In fact, she is often much too hard on herself and never satisfied with her accomplishments. Barbara Bach should strive to be reasonable and patient with herself.
At heart Barbara Bach is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Barbara Bach has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Bach can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in her work and she takes pride in a job well done. What she may lack in self-confidence Barbara Bach often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Bach can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Barbara Bach likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Bach. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Bach can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Bach tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Barbara has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Bach can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Barbara Bach seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.
She is cautious, realistic and practical in her approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Barbara Bach analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Bach allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Ownership gives Barbara Bach a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Barbara also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Her mind is very active and her judgment usually is sound. Although Barbara Bach's thinking is influenced by her feelings, she is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. She is in control of her feelings and is able to express them rationally.
Bach seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Barbara Bach tends to withdraw and her outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Barbara Bach should beware of letting her emotional tension react to her physical well-being.
Bach depends a great deal on other people's reactions to her and rarely acts until she sees how she affects others. Barbara Bach must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Barbara should also learn to rely heavily on her hunches.
