In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Chyna is also objective, pragmatic and quite ambitious. She is likely to work her way to the top of the ladder in some corporation, academic community or the like through her astute strategies combined with her willingness to take risks. Chyna aims to be the authority, the one in charge. At times her impulsiveness may be at odds with her conservative, responsible side (which is discussed below). Joanie Laurer could experience ongoing internal tension between pleasing herself and acting spontaneously versus doing what she needs to do to get ahead and realize her long-range ambitions.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Joanie Laurer. Chyna will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Chyna has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Chyna seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Chyna has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Chyna has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Chyna plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Joanie Laurer.
Joanie Laurer's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Joanie Laurer. Chyna 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. Chyna may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Chyna often feels that she needs to fight to get what she wants, and she tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. She is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Chyna often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Joanie Laurer is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Chyna tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Chyna both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
Chyna has a pleasant and dreamy disposition with considerable romantic imagination. Chyna has a strong longing for love, but she does not see others very clearly and may experience many disappointments in her emotional relationships.
She may find it hard to establish relationships with other people and she tends to look for more timid partners. Chyna could also have difficulty expressing her ideas to others as well as coming to an understanding with them.
