Though Daryn Kagan seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is also quite idealistic, as described below. She may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Daryn Kagan has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Daryn Kagan cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Kagan can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Daryn has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Daryn Kagan probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Daryn Kagan seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Daryn makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Daryn Kagan thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Daryn Kagan stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Daryn Kagan was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Daryn has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Kagan. Daryn Kagan has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Daryn Kagan may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Daryn Kagan has a mature and often somber demeanor. She is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. She progresses rather slowly in life, through her own efforts and persistence. She is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with herself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for her to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Daryn likes to be in control of herself.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Daryn Kagan that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Kagan can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
At times Daryn Kagan may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of her. When her life is becoming too predictable, Daryn may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Daryn Kagan which needs to be expressed now and then.
Her mind is very active and her judgment usually is sound. Although Daryn Kagan's thinking is influenced by her feelings, she is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. She is in control of her feelings and is able to express them rationally.
