In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Dedee Pfeiffer 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. Dedee Pfeiffer 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). Pfeiffer 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 Pfeiffer. Dedee Pfeiffer 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.
Dedee Pfeiffer has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Dedee Pfeiffer 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. Dedee 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. Dedee Pfeiffer 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, Dedee Pfeiffer 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 Pfeiffer.
Pfeiffer'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.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Pfeiffer.
Dedee Pfeiffer has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Dedee Pfeiffer 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. Dedee Pfeiffer has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Dedee Pfeiffer, between her conscious attitudes and aspirations, and her deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs, and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Dedee may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with her subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in her body may well be a signal that Dedee Pfeiffer is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Dedee Pfeiffer will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of her and to express both of them. If she cannot do this, Pfeiffer is apt to attract many relationships into her life with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities, and who seem to make her life difficult. (Read also chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
Dedee has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Dedee Pfeiffer tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, she never gives up on her hopes for the future. Pfeiffer tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Pfeiffer, and she does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how she is going to live her life. Dedee Pfeiffer craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. Dedee Pfeiffer possesses inventive and creative genius.
Dedee Pfeiffer deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Dedee 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. Dedee likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
