Although Julia Child seems flexible and changeable (as described on the previous page), she is really quite loyal, and she remains fixed on her heart's desires. Because she enjoys taking center stage, Julia Child often uses her verbal agility and quick wit (mentioned earlier) to entertain or impress other people.
Proud and intensely individual, Julia Child really wants to stand out, to be the very best she can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for her unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to her, and she cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Julia Child must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Julia Child needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Julia has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Julia Child also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Julia Child, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and she secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Julia wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. She needs someone to believe in her and her dreams. Though Child appears radiantly self-confident and independent, she is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. She cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Julia Child also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Julia Child loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in her relationships. She is also immensely loyal and will defend her loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend her pride or betray her trust. However, Julia Child likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Julia needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Child's strengths are her zest and love for life, her creative power and her warm and generous heart. Her primary fault is her tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression she is making and with her own creative self-expression that she forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around her.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Julia Child prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Child invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and her inner life.
Her vitality is not up to par and her will-power a bit weak, making Julia Child vulnerable to swindle or deceit. Her inner discontent and casual attitude could easily lead Child into dubious schemes. Julia should refrain from any activity that seems to be subversive.
