Behind Horney's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), she is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Horney's character is described in more detail in this chapter.
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. Brigitte Horney 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 Horney's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Brigitte Horney 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. Brigitte likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Brigitte Horney 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, Brigitte Horney also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Horney, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Brigitte Horney believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Brigitte Horney 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 Horney's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Brigitte Horney to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Brigitte Horney would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Brigitte Horney to do so.
Brigitte Horney has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and she loves to perform. Brigitte 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. Brigitte Horney has a strong sense of pride.
Horney can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. Her dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and she sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Brigitte Horney enjoys fine health as well.
