At first she may simply come across as clever and witty (as described on the previous page), but it soon becomes clear that there are ideals and causes that she takes very much to heart. As described below, Elizabeth Bishop is an innovator and an idealist at heart. She is an active person who needs to participate in community activities and is likely to be successful at whatever academic or business profession she chooses.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Elizabeth Bishop cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Bishop can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Elizabeth has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Elizabeth Bishop probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Elizabeth Bishop seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Elizabeth makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Elizabeth Bishop thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Elizabeth Bishop stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Elizabeth Bishop was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Elizabeth has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Bishop. Elizabeth Bishop has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Elizabeth Bishop may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Elizabeth Bishop 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.
Elizabeth has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Elizabeth Bishop 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. Bishop tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
Elizabeth Bishop tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she could have been dominated in her relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Bishop may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain her desires in underhanded ways.
Elizabeth's hypersensitivity to her environment is apt to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Elizabeth Bishop more than most people.
