Although Joni Mitchell appears to be quite gentle, easy-going and tolerant (as described on the previous page), at heart she is much more willful and passionate, as described below. Joni Mitchell is extremely emotional and she bonds intensely with her loved ones.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Joni Mitchell 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. Joni Mitchell 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.
Joni Mitchell 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 Joni Mitchell commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Joni 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 Mitchell has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Joni 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, Joni does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Mitchell can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Mitchell can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Joni Mitchell 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.
Joni Mitchell loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Joni never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Joni Mitchell tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Joni Mitchell has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and she loves to perform. Joni 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. Joni Mitchell has a strong sense of pride.
Joni Mitchell 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. Joni Mitchell has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
