Although she is dramatic and likes to show off or stand out in some way (as described on the previous page), there is another side to Barbara Payton that would gladly hole up in a deep, dark, quiet place. This other, more private and secretive side is described below.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Barbara Payton is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and she only allows a special few into her inner world. Like a wary animal, she is cautious and mistrustful of those she does not know until "he sniffs them out". She is highly instinctive and intuitive. Barbara Payton usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though she may be unable to clearly articulate why she feels the way she does. Her feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Barbara Payton also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and she forms very intense love bonds and attachments. She is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that she perceives as a threat to her relationship with someone she loves. When Barbara Payton commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Barbara merges with or "marries" the person she loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for her, and often stormy and nasty. When Payton has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Barbara will most certainly never forget the hurt and she often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to her.
Whatever she does, Barbara does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Payton can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Payton can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Barbara Payton emotionally detached and objective. She definitely has a fanatical streak. She is also immensely strong-willed and her tenacity in pursuing her objectives often borders on obsession. She is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Barbara Payton loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Barbara never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Barbara Payton tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Barbara Payton has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and she loves to perform. Barbara enjoys being the center of attention and she seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. She is very involved in her own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using her special talents be they artistic, athletic or intellectual. Barbara Payton has a strong sense of pride.
Barbara has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Payton many allies and successes in life.
Payton is very thorough and takes her time thinking things through. She enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Barbara Payton also could find traveling very rewarding.
Barbara Payton has a great desire for freedom and independence and is subject to strong emotional tensions. She is very creative and forges ahead tirelessly. But Payton tends to make the highest demands on her physical energy and is prone to over-stimulate her nerves.
