Her self-reliant, independent spirit described in the previous chapter, combined with her strong sense of community and larger social issues, compel Webb to take a strong stand on various ideological and political issues. Beatrice Webb feels that others are often too unconcerned and uninvolved in larger social issues that affect them directly. Political activism or being a "warrior" for a cause that is dear to her heart may be Beatrice's path in life.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Beatrice Webb cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Webb can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Beatrice has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Beatrice Webb probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Beatrice Webb seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Beatrice makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Beatrice Webb thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Beatrice Webb stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Beatrice Webb was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Beatrice has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Beatrice Webb really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to her.
Beatrice Webb often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Beatrice has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Beatrice sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Beatrice really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Beatrice has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Beatrice Webb tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, she never gives up on her hopes for the future. Webb tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Beatrice often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Webb is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Beatrice Webb tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Beatrice Webb both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
She is strong-willed, forceful and independent. Webb knows what she wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. Beatrice Webb tends to judge herself and others quite severely, but she is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
