Behind Crawford's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), she is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Crawford's character is described in more detail in this chapter.
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. Joan Crawford 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 Crawford's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Joan Crawford 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. Joan likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Joan Crawford 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, Joan Crawford also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Crawford, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Joan Crawford believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Joan Crawford 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 Crawford's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Joan Crawford to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Joan Crawford would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Joan Crawford to do so.
Joan Crawford has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and she loves to perform. Joan enjoys being the center of attention and she seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. She is very involved in her own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using her special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Joan Crawford has a strong sense of pride.
Crawford's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with her conscious intentions and desires, therefore Joan Crawford is able to proceed in her life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Joan's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Joan is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Joan Crawford is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Crawford may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
She is warm-hearted, kind, generous and very popular, especially with the opposite sex. Crawford's happy feelings rub off onto others and everyone enjoys being with her. Due to a protective and encouraging upbringing, her relationships with her parents are good.
Joan Crawford has a good relationship between her body and soul. Joan Crawford tends to seek out the public and because of her strong personality, others will follow her. Joan could do well in public relations.
