Her gift of gab (described in the previous chapter), combined with her need for relationships and togetherness (discussed in the following paragraphs), makes Inger Stevens a real "people person". She seems to need an ongoing, incessant dialogue! Indecisiveness can be a real problem for Inger Stevens since she sees many sides to an issue and always solicits the opinions of others before acting.
Harmony and balance are her keynotes. Inger Stevens instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and she is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Inger does all she can to avoid conflict and discord. Her spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and she often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Stevens since she can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make her own decisions. Stevens will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. She prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on her own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Inger Stevens, and she has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Inger Stevens invests a great deal of her energy in personal love relationships and she is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Inger Stevens seeks a partner who is her equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. She makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and she enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Stevens perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Inger Stevens appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in her personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to her. If Inger Stevens fights about anything, it is often about something she feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Inger. She believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Inger Stevens also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Stevens dresses and furnishes her home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to her.
Her energies are directed toward either honing her professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Inger Stevens is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and she is quite a perfectionist!
Stevens can easily become overly identified or involved with the task she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
She is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. Her good will and friendliness win her many allies. Inger Stevens also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Inger expects the best, and usually gets it.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Stevens' optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Inger Stevens 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.
Realistic and practical, Inger Stevens sets goals for herself that are modest enough for her to actually achieve. She is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Stevens possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Inger Stevens also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling her obligations. Stevens often does things because she feels it is expected of her.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Inger often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Stevens is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Inger Stevens tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Inger Stevens both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
Inger Stevens has a strong need to be with people whom she is emotionally close to. She is very sensitive to others emotional needs, lending a sympathetic ear to their problems. Peace and harmony in her personal surrounding and relationships are very important to Stevens.
