Behind Barkin's proud and magnanimous demeanor (as described on the previous page) lays a real go-getter. Others feel that she is rather narcissistic. Ellen Barkin should strive to always be aware of others' needs and concerns to prove this criticism wrong!
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. Ellen Barkin 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 Barkin's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Ellen Barkin 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. Ellen likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Ellen Barkin 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, Ellen Barkin also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate.

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 Barkin's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Ellen Barkin to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Ellen Barkin would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Ellen Barkin to do so.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Barkin.
