In addition to Chiaki's rather conservative and self-controlled demeanor (mentioned in the previous chapter), she has a highly developed sense of aesthetics, poise and gracefulness, as described below. Chiaki has refined taste and manners, but she may find it difficult to really let her hair down or deviate from certain internal constraints. Chiaki Kuriyama has a knack for keeping things simple yet beautiful.
Harmony and balance are her keynotes. Chiaki Kuriyama instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and she is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Chiaki does all she can to avoid conflict and discord. Her spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and she often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Kuriyama since she can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make her own decisions. Kuriyama will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. She prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on her own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Chiaki Kuriyama, and she has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Chiaki Kuriyama invests a great deal of her energy in personal love relationships and she is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Chiaki Kuriyama seeks a partner who is her equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. She makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and she enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Kuriyama perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Chiaki Kuriyama appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in her personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to her. If Chiaki Kuriyama fights about anything, it is often about something she feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Chiaki. She believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Chiaki Kuriyama also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Kuriyama dresses and furnishes her home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to her.
Kuriyama is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world.
Chiaki Kuriyama is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Chiaki Kuriyama tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Chiaki Kuriyama has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Her conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by her unconscious beliefs and desires. If Chiaki Kuriyama overrides her instincts and emotions because they seem to lead her in a direction diametrically opposed to the one she consciously desires, her emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Chiaki Kuriyama attends to her emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of her intuition, dreams and gut feelings, she will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
