Behind Foster's rather jovial, open, enthusiastic demeanor (as described on the previous page), there is a very different side to her - deeper, more serious, and more emotionally intense, as described below. Her optimism and idealism are tempered and balanced by a certain skepticism and a sense of the darker side of life and of people.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Jodie Foster is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and she only allows a special few into her inner world. Like a wary animal, she is cautious and mistrustful of those she does not know until "he sniffs them out". She is highly instinctive and intuitive. Jodie Foster usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though she may be unable to clearly articulate why she feels the way she does. Her feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Jodie Foster also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and she forms very intense love bonds and attachments. She is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that she perceives as a threat to her relationship with someone she loves. When Jodie Foster commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Jodie merges with or "marries" the person she loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for her, and often stormy and nasty. When Foster has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Jodie will most certainly never forget the hurt and she often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to her.
Whatever she does, Jodie does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Foster can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Foster can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Jodie Foster emotionally detached and objective. She definitely has a fanatical streak. She is also immensely strong-willed and her tenacity in pursuing her objectives often borders on obsession. She is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Jodie Foster loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Jodie never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Jodie Foster tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Jodie Foster 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 Foster.
Jodie Foster tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Jodie Foster has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Jodie Foster feels physically strong and fit and has a healthy sex-life. Her actions are governed by a strong sense of honor and integrity. Foster is ambitious with a talent for organizing and a strong desire to succeed, insuring by that her professional success.
