Behind Ross' rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), she is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Ross' character is described in more detail in this chapter.
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Diana Ross believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Ross' gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Diana Ross craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Diana likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Diana Ross loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Diana Ross also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Ross, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Diana Ross believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Diana Ross hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Ross' relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Diana Ross to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Diana Ross would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Diana Ross to do so.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Diana Ross prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Ross invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and her inner life.
She is an original! Diana Ross radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things she is interested in, and conveys this to others, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Diana does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
Diana Ross is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to her own detriment. Her ideals and spiritual values motivate Diana Ross, and she cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what she does. Otherwise Diana Ross becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Diana.
Diana Ross deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Diana 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. Diana likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
With her charm and outgoing personality Diana Ross has no trouble attracting people and she enjoys pleasant and congenial relationships with them. She may choose social contact with generous or wealthy people and would prefer to live in a beautiful home.
