Much of what is stated in the previous chapter is similar to what is stated in this one. Joan Fontaine's need to relate openly and honestly to others is very strong. Joan has to be wary of the tendency to be so strongly influenced by the ideas and opinions of others that she is unsure of her own.
Harmony and balance are her keynotes. Joan Fontaine instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and she is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Joan does all she can to avoid conflict and discord. Her spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and she often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Fontaine since she can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make her own decisions. Fontaine will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. She prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on her own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Joan Fontaine, and she has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Joan Fontaine invests a great deal of her energy in personal love relationships and she is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Joan Fontaine seeks a partner who is her equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. She makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and she enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Fontaine perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Joan Fontaine appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in her personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to her. If Joan Fontaine fights about anything, it is often about something she feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Joan. She believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Joan Fontaine also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Fontaine dresses and furnishes her home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to her.
Joan Fontaine tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where her efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting herself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Fontaine.
Joan Fontaine has a basic need to fit in with others and is always willing to cooperate. She enjoys working with others as a team and is a well liked comrade.
Joan Fontaine has a great desire for freedom and independence and is subject to strong emotional tensions. She is very creative and forges ahead tirelessly. But Fontaine tends to make the highest demands on her physical energy and is prone to over-stimulate her nerves.
