Although Dolores Donlon approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), she also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side, as discussed below. Her conflicting urges may vacillate between living passionately and dangerously, and being conservative and playing it safe.
At heart Dolores Donlon is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Dolores Donlon has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Donlon can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in her work and she takes pride in a job well done. What she may lack in self-confidence Dolores Donlon often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Donlon can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Dolores Donlon likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Donlon. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Donlon can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Donlon tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Dolores has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Donlon can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Dolores Donlon seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.
She is cautious, realistic and practical in her approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Dolores Donlon analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Donlon allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Donlon. Dolores Donlon 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. Dolores Donlon may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Dolores Donlon 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. Dolores Donlon 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 Dolores Donlon 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 Dolores 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 Dolores Donlon is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Dolores Donlon will learn to accept and express these two different sides of herself. Should she fail to do so, Donlon is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities and seem to make her life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Dolores Donlon cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Dolores finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Donlon to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Dolores Donlon has a very creative, inventive streak.
