Behind Mendes' rather lighthearted, witty and restless demeanor described in the previous chapter, lies a sensitive, poetic soul. Eva Mendes may cover up her sensitivity with light banter and cleverness - or she may use her verbal and communication skills to express her imagination, kindness and refined sensitivity.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Eva Mendes 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 Mendes may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Eva Mendes usually keeps to herself.
Eva 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. Eva has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Eva Mendes 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, Mendes 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. Eva 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. Mendes will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Mendes tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Eva Mendes 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. Eva Mendes 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 Mendes more than it bothers her.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Mendes. Eva Mendes 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. Eva Mendes may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Eva Mendes 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. Eva Mendes has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Mendes, and she does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how she is going to live her life. Eva Mendes craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. Eva Mendes possesses inventive and creative genius.
Eva is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Eva Mendes is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Mendes may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
She is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything she does. Her extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Eva Mendes does not always consciously understand why she feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as she does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Mendes' life. A significant death or loss in her close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Eva Mendes and shape important decisions in her life, and she may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Eva Mendes has a harmonious balance between her body, soul and spirit. She enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form her own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. She may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to her. Eva Mendes probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. She tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Eva's well-being.
She is inclined to feel uncomfortable or restrained in some way in the presence of others and prefer to be alone. Eva Mendes is modest and shy in her approach to others and tends to accept more responsibility than she really needs to.
