Although Edie Sedgwick enjoys conversing and interacting with people (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she also has a self-reliant, independent spirit. Sedgwick can go it alone if need be because Edie Sedgwick likes to be a free agent. She likes to exchange ideas, but as stated below, she does not always listen.
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. Edie Sedgwick 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 Sedgwick's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Edie Sedgwick 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. Edie likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Edie Sedgwick 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, Edie Sedgwick also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Sedgwick, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Edie Sedgwick believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Edie Sedgwick 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 Sedgwick's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Edie Sedgwick to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Edie Sedgwick would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Edie Sedgwick to do so.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Edie Sedgwick really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to her.
Her conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by her unconscious beliefs and desires. If Edie Sedgwick overrides her instincts and emotions because they seem to lead her in a direction diametrically opposed to the one she consciously desires, her emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Edie Sedgwick attends to her emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of her intuition, dreams and gut feelings, she will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
Sedgwick can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. Her dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and she sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Edie Sedgwick enjoys fine health as well.
Along with her energy and drive, Edie Sedgwick has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Sedgwick, as well as a doer and a fighter. Edie wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for her.
Edie Sedgwick tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Sedgwick may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve her desires in underhanded ways.
Edie's hypersensitivity to her environment is likely to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Edie Sedgwick more than most people.
She is a bit impulsive and excitable and wants things done quickly. Edie Sedgwick tends to be very impatient with anyone who is slower or less energetic than she is. Sedgwick will fight for what she wants but should guard against mishaps or accidents.
