Although Gloria Estefan approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), she also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side, as discussed below. Her conflicting urges may vacillate between living passionately and dangerously, and being conservative and playing it safe.
At heart Gloria Estefan is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Gloria Estefan has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Estefan can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in her work and she takes pride in a job well done. What she may lack in self-confidence Gloria Estefan often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Estefan can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Gloria Estefan likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Estefan. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Estefan can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Estefan tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Gloria has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Estefan can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Gloria Estefan seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.
She is cautious, realistic and practical in her approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Gloria Estefan analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Estefan allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Estefan. Gloria Estefan 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. Gloria Estefan may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
She is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Gloria Estefan has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Gloria Estefan has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
While Gloria Estefan 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!).
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Gloria Estefan has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Gloria Estefan tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
Her vitality is very strong and she is likely to be a workaholic. If Gloria Estefan is not careful, she may work so hard that she becomes exhausted, leaving herself open to physical breakdown. Gloria Estefan also has a strong drive to win and to dominate others.
Gloria Estefan has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance she has to overcome. Whatever she does, she knows what she wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
