Behind Wyman's nice, pleasant, easygoing demeanor (described in the previous chapter) lies a very clear-eyed, objective, no-nonsense person. This aspect of Wyman's character is described in more detail below.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Wyman. Jane Wyman will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Jane Wyman has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Jane Wyman seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Jane has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Jane Wyman has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Jane Wyman plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Wyman.
Wyman's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
The urge to learn and to communicate is essential to Jane Wyman, and she expresses herself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Wyman is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Jane enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for herself what is going on in the world around her.
Jane Wyman often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Jane has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Jane sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Jane really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Highly competitive and easily provoked, Jane Wyman needs challenges and opponents to pit herself against. Jane thrives on contest and rivalry. At times her vigorous, combative way of achieving the things she wants antagonizes other people. If Jane Wyman uses force too often, others will turn against her and oppose her at every turn.
While Jane Wyman 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!).
Jane has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from her father or other significant men in her life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Jane and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of her greatest handicaps, and at times she may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of her own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in her life. Jane Wyman needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities say.
Jane Wyman 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 Wyman.
Jane Wyman probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Jane never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But she also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
Jane Wyman has a sensitive physique, is impressionable and prone to external influences. Jane should guard against the tendency to escape through drugs, alcohol etc. Her imagination is very vivid and Wyman is likely to dream of big things.
