Though Janet Leigh seems powerful and intense in a quiet sort of way (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is really quite soft, sentimental and vulnerable inside.
Janet has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Leigh to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Leigh tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Janet likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Janet Leigh has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Janet Leigh than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Janet Leigh takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Janet Leigh feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Janet Leigh needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Janet Leigh becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Janet Leigh functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Leigh often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Janet Leigh also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Leigh's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Leigh.
Janet Leigh has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Janet Leigh 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. Janet has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Janet sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Janet really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Inwardly she is zealous and fanatical, though she may hide her personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of her feelings. She is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Janet is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Janet Leigh tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and she often seeks to emulate them. Janet has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
Janet Leigh has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and she likes to share her intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
