Although it may seem that she is just patiently plodding along, Juanita Bynum is actually quite shrewd and has a clear purpose in mind. She is far more astute and ambitious than her rather gentle, forbearing manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Bynum. Juanita Bynum will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Juanita Bynum has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Juanita Bynum seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Juanita has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Juanita Bynum has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Juanita Bynum plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Bynum.
Bynum's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Bynum. Juanita Bynum has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Juanita Bynum may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Juanita Bynum often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Juanita has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Juanita sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Juanita really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
She is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. She enjoys competition, and her initiative and self-confidence make Juanita Bynum a winner.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening up to her at just the right time. Because Juanita Bynum is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate success in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Juanita should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
Bynum always seems to find the right words to verbalize her feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Juanita Bynum also has a keen sense of beauty and she probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
