Eunice likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves.

She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society.

She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles.

Eunice Kennedy Shriver functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Shriver often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Eunice Kennedy Shriver also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Shriver's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.

While Eunice Kennedy Shriver does have a strong drive, she frequently holds herself back. One of her challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in her life (or her own internal caution and resistance!).
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Shriver's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Eunice Kennedy Shriver tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
