Behind Flockhart's rather jovial, open, enthusiastic demeanor (as described on the previous page), there is a very different side to her - deeper, more serious, and more emotionally intense, as described below. Her optimism and idealism are tempered and balanced by a certain skepticism and a sense of the darker side of life and of people.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Calista Flockhart 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. Calista Flockhart 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.
Calista Flockhart 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 Calista Flockhart commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Calista 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 Flockhart has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Calista 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, Calista does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Flockhart can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Flockhart can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Calista Flockhart 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.
Calista Flockhart loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Calista never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Calista Flockhart tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Calista Flockhart really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to her.
Calista Flockhart aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Flockhart's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Calista.
Sensitive and imaginative, she is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Calista Flockhart is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Calista has an abundance of dreams, visions and longings, but does not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them materialize. Gentle, idealistic and peace loving, Calista often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Calista has an ethereal quality about her.
Calista Flockhart undergoes deep, transformative changes in her life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because she does not avoid the depths, Flockhart has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Calista is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people she comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Calista Flockhart is a force to be reckoned with.
