Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Elizabeth Barre Browning often senses a conflict between her discriminating, analytical, critical side (described in the previous chapter), and her tolerant, forgiving side (described below). Consequently, Browning tends to seesaw - at times criticizing and correcting others while at others, forgiving them for the most egregious errors and inadequacies. Elizabeth Barre Browning should strive to find a balance between clarity and justice on the one hand, and mercy and compassion on the other.
Browning's urge to serve, help and improve the life of others is strong, and she is quite willing to make personal sacrifices to do so.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Elizabeth Barre Browning as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Browning may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Elizabeth Barre Browning usually keeps to herself.
Elizabeth Barre shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Elizabeth Barre has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Elizabeth Barre Browning sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Browning tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Elizabeth Barre has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Browning will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Browning tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Elizabeth Barre Browning does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Elizabeth Barre Browning has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Browning more than it bothers her.
Her energies are directed to either perfecting her techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Elizabeth Barre Browning's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Browning can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
She is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Elizabeth Barre Browning has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Elizabeth Barre Browning has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
Inwardly she is zealous and fanatical, though she may hide her personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of her feelings.

Elizabeth Barre is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special.
