Although Benjamin McKenzie approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), she also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side, as discussed below. Her conflicting urges may vacillate between living passionately and dangerously, and being conservative and playing it safe.
At heart Benjamin McKenzie is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Benjamin McKenzie has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, McKenzie 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 Benjamin McKenzie 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 McKenzie 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. Benjamin McKenzie 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 McKenzie. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, McKenzie can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, McKenzie 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. Ben 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. McKenzie can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Benjamin McKenzie 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. Benjamin McKenzie analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If McKenzie allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to McKenzie. Benjamin McKenzie has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts.

Ben is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Benjamin McKenzie is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, McKenzie may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
She is warm-hearted, kind, generous and very popular, especially with the opposite sex. McKenzie's happy feelings rub off onto others and everyone enjoys being with her. Due to a protective and encouraging upbringing, her relationships with her parents are good.
