Although Emma Borden has very strong feelings and often reacts to situations passionately (as described on the previous page), she is basically very tender and softhearted. There are at least two sides to Borden: a rather jealous and guarded side, and a much more lenient, generous and forgiving side (discussed below).
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Emma Borden 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 Borden may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Emma Borden usually keeps to herself.
Emma 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. Emma has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Emma Borden 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, Borden 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. Emma 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. Borden will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Borden tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Emma Borden 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. Emma Borden 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 Borden more than it bothers her.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Emma Borden prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Borden invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and inner life.
Sensitive and imaginative, she is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Emma Borden is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Emma has an abundance of dreams, visions and longings, but does not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them materialize. Gentle, idealistic and peace loving, Emma often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Emma has an ethereal quality about her.
She is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Emma Borden could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Emma likes to flirt and tends to fall in love at first sight, but she then transfers her affections to someone else for no apparent reason.
Borden has an intrinsic creative and artistic ability and an unusual sense of form. Emma Borden also has a deep need for relationships that offer affection and can be quite intense when by inner compulsion she feels drawn to someone. Her relationships tend to be peculiar in some way.
