Although Doris Dowling is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with her accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - she is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, she is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
She is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of her greatest assets. Once Dowling's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Doris Dowling has a very practical nature; she wants to see concrete, tangible results for her efforts, and she is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of her "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for she has a great love of the physical world and she wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Doris Dowling will work long and persistently, she also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and she wants to enjoy what she has worked for. In fact, Dowling can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Doris Dowling also loves the beauty of the natural world and she probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, her needs are simple and she is easy to please. Doris Dowling has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless she is forced to do so. She is not very demanding emotionally, though she does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of her faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Dowling for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Doris Dowling usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Doris Dowling also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. She makes an excellent parent, especially if she follows her instincts more often than "the experts".
Doris has three major faults: one is her bullheaded obstinacy. The second is her unwillingness to deviate from her safe, predictable routine. And the third is Dowling's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Doris Dowling lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Dowling. Doris Dowling 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. Doris Dowling may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
The above description of Doris Dowling is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Doris Dowling tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in her makeup and she generally knows what she wants and what will make her happy.
