Although Jennifer Grey appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". Grey 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 Jennifer Grey 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. Jennifer Grey 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 Grey's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Jennifer Grey 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. Jennifer likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Jennifer Grey 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, Jennifer Grey also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Grey, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Jennifer Grey believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Jennifer Grey 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 Grey's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Jennifer Grey to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Jennifer Grey would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Jennifer Grey to do so.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Grey. Jennifer Grey has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Jennifer Grey may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Jennifer has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Jennifer Grey tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, she never gives up on her hopes for the future. Grey tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
Jennifer Grey tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Grey may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve her desires in underhanded ways.
Jennifer's hypersensitivity to her environment is likely to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Jennifer Grey more than most people.
She is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything she does. Her extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Jennifer Grey does not always consciously understand why she feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as she does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Grey's life. A significant death or loss in her close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Jennifer Grey and shape important life decisions and she may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Jennifer Grey has a sensitive physique, is impressionable and prone to external influences. Jennifer should guard against the tendency to escape through drugs, alcohol etc. Her imagination is very vivid and Grey is likely to dream of big things.
