Although it may seem that she is just patiently plodding along, Eliza Dushku is actually quite shrewd and has a clear purpose in mind. She is far more astute and ambitious than her rather gentle, forbearing manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Dushku. Eliza Dushku will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Eliza Dushku has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Eliza Dushku seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Eliza has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Eliza Dushku has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Eliza Dushku plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Dushku.
Dushku's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Eliza Dushku craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable or taboo. Eliza may hide her interests or inclinations, except from those who know her very intimately. Eliza Dushku is rarely content with herself and her life, and she has an inner urge to continually delve deeper than ever before. Eliza is also highly interested in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Eliza Dushku 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. Eliza Dushku has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Eliza has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Eliza Dushku tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, she never gives up on her hopes for the future. Dushku tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Dushku's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Eliza Dushku tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Eliza Dushku has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Eliza Dushku tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Eliza blends charm and energy. Eliza Dushku has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. She may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Eliza, and her romantic relationships are passionate.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to her. Eliza Dushku probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. She tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Eliza's well-being.
