Although she is dramatic and likes to show off or stand out in some way (as described on the previous page), there is another side to Dorothy Dandridge that would gladly hole up in a deep, dark, quiet place. This other, more private and secretive side is described below.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Dorothy Dandridge is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and she only allows a special few into her inner world. Like a wary animal, she is cautious and mistrustful of those she does not know until "he sniffs them out". She is highly instinctive and intuitive. Dorothy Dandridge usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though she may be unable to clearly articulate why she feels the way she does. Her feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Dorothy Dandridge also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and she forms very intense love bonds and attachments. She is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that she perceives as a threat to her relationship with someone she loves. When Dorothy Dandridge commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Dorothy merges with or "marries" the person she loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for her, and often stormy and nasty. When Dandridge has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Dorothy will most certainly never forget the hurt and she often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to her.
Whatever she does, Dorothy does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Dandridge can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Dandridge can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Dorothy Dandridge emotionally detached and objective. She definitely has a fanatical streak. She is also immensely strong-willed and her tenacity in pursuing her objectives often borders on obsession. She is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Dorothy Dandridge loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Dorothy never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Dorothy Dandridge tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Dorothy Dandridge prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Dandridge invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and inner life.
Dorothy Dandridge feels that she has the support of her family or others in her environment for her creative efforts and personal goals, which enables her to act with confidence. She is able to satisfy both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. She is in harmony with herself and is therefore an effective individual.
Dorothy is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Dorothy Dandridge is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Dandridge may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
