Her apparent gentleness and noncompetitive stance toward life (described in the previous chapter) may be very deceiving because at heart she is a "warrior". Barbara Richardson may feel at odds with herself, sometimes being very passive or benevolent, and at other times, very assertive and concerned primarily with herself. Both qualities are intrinsic to Barbara's nature.
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Barbara Richardson believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Richardson's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Barbara Richardson craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Barbara likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Barbara Richardson loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Barbara Richardson also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Richardson, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Barbara Richardson believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Barbara Richardson hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Richardson's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Barbara Richardson to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Barbara Richardson would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Barbara Richardson to do so.
Barbara Richardson 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, Richardson can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Barbara Richardson 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.
Barbara Richardson is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Barbara does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Richardson, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Although Barbara Richardson prefers harmony and accord, she also has a confrontational side.
She is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Barbara Richardson has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Barbara Richardson has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
Barbara Richardson loves to entertain and likes to cultivate social contacts. She enjoys forming close personal relationships with others and most of them should be harmonious. Barbara prefers teamwork rather than separate efforts to realize her goals.
