Although Elle Macpherson enjoys conversing and interacting with people (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she also has a self-reliant, independent spirit. Macpherson can go it alone if need be because Elle Macpherson 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. Elle Macpherson 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 Macpherson's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Elle Macpherson 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 Macpherson 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 Macpherson also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Macpherson, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Elle Macpherson believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Elle Macpherson 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 Macpherson's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Elle Macpherson to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Elle Macpherson would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Elle Macpherson to do so.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Macpherson. Elle Macpherson has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Elle Macpherson may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
At times Elle Macpherson may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When her life becomes too predictable, Elle may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Elle Macpherson that needs to be expressed now and then.
