The way Cathy Downs comes across to others is very congruent with her true nature, so in her case "what she sees is what you get". The description in chapter 3 will thus reinforce what you read about Cathy in the previous chapter.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Cathy Downs as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Downs may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Cathy Downs usually keeps to herself.
Cathy shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Cathy has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Cathy Downs sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Downs tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Cathy has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Downs will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Downs tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Cathy Downs does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Cathy Downs has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Downs more than it bothers her.
Cathy Downs tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where her efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged or unknown to the public. Downs may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert herself or get up in front of an audience.
Downs 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, Cathy Downs enjoys fine health as well.
Cathy Downs deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Cathy has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, she pursues her desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and she may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Cathy likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
