Although she has a very strong need to shine and feel special (as described on the previous page), she also has a rather humble, self-critical side, as discussed below. She may appear proud and confident, but she is really much less so inside. In fact, she is often much too hard on herself and never satisfied with her accomplishments. Ingrid Bergman should strive to be reasonable and patient with herself.
At heart Ingrid Bergman is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Ingrid Bergman has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Bergman 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 Ingrid Bergman 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 Bergman 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. Ingrid Bergman 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 Bergman. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Bergman can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Bergman 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. Ingrid 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. Bergman can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Ingrid Bergman 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. Ingrid Bergman analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Bergman allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Ingrid Bergman has a clear sense of her own self and she therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who she is and what she wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Bergman can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Ingrid Bergman feels a need to be in control of her own life and she can be too self-involved, too immersed in her own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Ingrid Bergman is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Ingrid does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Bergman, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Although Ingrid Bergman prefers harmony and accord, she also has a confrontational side.
Bergman can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. Her dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and she sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Ingrid Bergman enjoys fine health as well.
Ingrid Bergman undergoes deep, transformative changes in her life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because she does not avoid the depths, Bergman has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Ingrid is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people she comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Ingrid Bergman is a force to be reckoned with.
She prefers more serious kinds of conversation with her friends and neighbors rather than small talk. Because her communication is clear and concise, Ingrid Bergman can impress others by taking control of negotiations or business dealings.
Her comprehension is exceptional and Ingrid Bergman reacts to everything very quickly. Bergman shows deep respect for knowledge and feels that she must learn everything there is to know. Studying probably was encouraged early on and Ingrid Bergman was raised to be successful.
