Her desire for harmonious relationships and surroundings is so strong that she avoids personal confrontation or any expression of intense, unpleasant emotions. Dyan Cannon is an idealist who would like to paint the world in pastel colors, and live in peace and harmony with others at all times. She is able to see points of similarity and unity with people who are vastly different from her, and befriend many different types of people. She is a considerate and thoughtful friend, and has a real flair for making others feel accepted and appreciated. Inwardly, Dyan Cannon is often torn with indecision and is much more at odds with herself than others would ever guess based on her flawless disposition.
Though she yearns for close relationships, Dyan Cannon often closes herself off and does not really trust others who may wish to get to know her. Cannon is very wholehearted in her feelings and responses to people, and she wants all or nothing from the people she cares for.
Cannon can be hard to get close to. Subconsciously she may feel that too much closeness in her relationships will interfere with doing what she needs to do and being her own person, so Dyan Cannon puts up subtle walls and distances herself when someone begins to want more of her than she can comfortably give. However, Cannon may cut off sources of emotional nourishment and support that way, and end up feeling alone and lonely. Dyan Cannon might even develop digestive problems. Overcoming her fear of intimacy, while at the same time affirming and acting on her autonomous needs, is the challenge she faces.
She is open and unconventional in her attitude towards love relationships, romance and sex. She enjoys socializing, bringing people together and having many friends of both sexes. Dyan Cannon values friendship very highly and in fact, she is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Dyan desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with her love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to her. The traditional "husband" and "wife" roles do not appeal to Cannon, and she abhors jealousy and possessiveness since she feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Dyan Cannon appreciates relationships in which her love partner allows her plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
Cannon is very much aware of her personal appearance, attractiveness and charm, and she can be rather narcissistic. On the other hand, Dyan Cannon is concerned with getting along with others and she has a pleasing, agreeable manner that people find quite appealing. Dyan uses tact or charm to get what she wants rather than intense effort or force. Her desire for love and affection colors everything Dyan Cannon does.
Dyan Cannon is warmly romantic and she openly expresses her appreciation and love of the opposite sex, though rarely in a crude or insensitive manner. She enjoys playing matchmaker and bringing people together romantically. Cannon is likely to find fulfillment and harmony in love relationships because she knows what she wants and needs in a romantic sense and expresses her desires honestly.
She is prone to getting involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Dyan Cannon to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Cannon may be tempted to use her own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if her intentions are basically good, Dyan Cannon will find that her closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unsavory aspects of her character (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep surfacing. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
