Although Elle Fanning appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". Fanning sometimes feels torn between these two facets of her character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Elle Fanning often think that she is a "softy", but later find out that she is strong willed and pursues her goals aggressively.
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. Elle Fanning 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 Fanning's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Elle Fanning 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. Elle likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Elle Fanning 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, Elle Fanning also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Fanning, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Elle Fanning believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Elle Fanning 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 Fanning's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Elle Fanning to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Elle Fanning would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Elle Fanning to do so.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Fanning. Elle Fanning 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. Elle Fanning may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Elle Fanning 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. Elle Fanning has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Elle Fanning has a mature and often somber demeanor. She is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. She progresses rather slowly in life, through her own efforts and persistence. She is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with herself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for her to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Elle likes to be in control of herself.
Elle Fanning tends to think and act bravely and has a positive and firm demeanor. Elle has what it takes to make her own way in life. She may be a bit excitable, but never shy away from a good argument.
Fanning is very thorough and takes her time thinking things through. She enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Elle Fanning also could find traveling very rewarding.
Fanning depends a great deal on other people's reactions to her and rarely acts until she sees how she affects others. Elle Fanning must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Elle should also learn to rely heavily on her hunches.
