Although Jayne Mansfield appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". Mansfield sometimes feels torn between these two facets of her character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Jayne Mansfield often think that she is a "softy", but later find out that she is strong willed and pursues her goals aggressively.
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Jayne Mansfield believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Mansfield's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Jayne Mansfield craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Jayne likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Jayne Mansfield loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Jayne Mansfield also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Mansfield, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Jayne Mansfield believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Jayne Mansfield hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Mansfield's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Jayne Mansfield to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Jayne Mansfield would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Jayne Mansfield to do so.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Jayne Mansfield really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to her.
Jayne Mansfield 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 Jayne does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Mansfield, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Mansfield's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with her conscious intentions and desires, therefore Jayne Mansfield is able to proceed with her life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Jayne's male-female relationships will also reflect this state of internal harmony.
Although Jayne Mansfield prefers harmony and accord, she also has a confrontational side.
She is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. She enjoys competition, and her initiative and self-confidence make Jayne Mansfield a winner.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, she identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Jayne Mansfield insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Jayne needs a lifestyle that allows her to be spontaneous. She often feels that she is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
