Serious and responsible, she tries to carry the world on her shoulders and rarely lets others know that she needs help and support. Joan Fontaine denies or ignores her own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept her if she appears "weak". She is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and tells herself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Joan Fontaine needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with her "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, she may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. Her feelings and loyalties run deep, but she often does not let people know how much she cares. Joan Fontaine also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy herself, and play.
Joan Fontaine often makes decisions solely for emotional or personal reasons, because something "feels right" or because she has always done it a certain way and she is uncomfortable changing it. Even when Fontaine thinks she is being rational, her prejudices, intuitions, and feelings influence her thoughts a great deal. Joan is comfortable talking about feelings and personal subjects, and sharing confidences, which enables others to express their own inner feelings with her as well. Joan Fontaine has good psychological insight into others.
Highly sensitive and rather easily taken in, Joan Fontaine needs to beware of deceiving herself and allowing others to take advantage of her impressionability or gentleness. Daydreaming, fantasizing, or other forms of imaginative, escapist behavior (such as watching television excessively or living her life through romance novels) could be something of an addiction for Fontaine. Joan Fontaine tends to confuse images with reality and needs to learn to be more circumspect and discriminating. Disappointments through women and in close relationships may occur if Fontaine does not.
Her intimate and close personal relationships are often intense, highly-charged and difficult, as they trigger deep emotional responses in Joan Fontaine that have more to do with unsatisfied hungers and unmet childhood needs than with the present situation. She may feel like a voracious, bottomless pit when it comes to nurturing and emotional reassurance, and Fontaine's neediness often drives others away. When Joan Fontaine does let herself feel close to another human being, painful, long-buried feelings bubble to the surface as do - perhaps - grief at the losses she suffered or anger at the neglect or hurt she endured. She may also reenact these situations in her present day relationships, in an unconscious effort to resolve and heal old issues. Fontaine will do a lot of cleansing if she can listen to what her feelings are telling her. If not, Joan Fontaine will simply have a tumultuous, passionate and stormy emotional life.
Joan Fontaine has a cheerful temperament and a harmonious disposition. Because of her easy personality, Fontaine gets along easily with others. Home and family relationships are precious to Joan and her home is likely to be large and lavish.
In love relationships, Joan Fontaine seeks companionship and friendship with someone who is fun loving, playful and open to adventure and new experiences. She enjoys traveling together, meeting new people and making new friends. Honeymooning in a distant location appeals to Joan, and she is also attracted to foreigners or people with diametrically different backgrounds than her own. Joan Fontaine supports her partner in taking risks and making positive changes, rather than preserving the status quo. She also very much wants a partner who will encourage her own aspirations and dreams. It is very important to Joan that she have a spiritual or intellectual rapport with her love partner, perhaps more important than the emotional/physical aspect. Joan Fontaine is not especially sentimental and her love partner may feel that she is too casual and not serious or romantic enough.
For Joan Fontaine, caring and affection must be expressed tangibly, and she loves giving and receiving gifts. Joan values luxury, comfort, and elegance very highly and appreciates beautiful things. She can be self-indulgent and extravagant. Being overly possessive of people she loves and of her belongings is something Joan Fontaine needs to beware of.
Money is liable to be an issue in her life, not because she does not have it, but because Joan Fontaine cannot or will not hold onto it. Joan Fontaine has a freehanded, generous, open attitude and would prefer to spend and enjoy and partake in the pleasures of the moment than to save, discipline or budget herself. At Fontaine's worst, she wants an easy ride and friends will often let Joan freeload because she is such an agreeable, friendly and pleasant sort. Alternatively, Fontaine could let other people take advantage of her hospitality and tolerance.
Fontaine also avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it is too much trouble or too petty. Joan Fontaine just wants to have a good time.
Joan's pleasure-loving nature and her emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing her affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Joan Fontaine is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times she is far more contained as described here. Because she is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Fontaine is to being left out or unappreciated.
Loyalty, fidelity and security are very important to Joan Fontaine in love relationships. She is cautious about giving her heart away but true to the one who does win her love. Her tastes are simple, even austere, and she does not appreciate frivolity. Fontaine is interested in a person's character and inner qualities far more than in her or her appearance. Casual or superficial relationships do not interest Joan Fontaine at all, for love seems to get deeper and richer and more satisfying for her with time.
Sensitive and compassionate, Fontaine tends to be the "giver" in any relationship. Joan has high ideals and a refined attitude towards love relationships, seeking to relate in ways that go beyond egotistical and selfish needs. Joan is attracted to people with artistic or mystical inclinations.
