Although Julia Stiles appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". Stiles sometimes feels torn between these two facets of her character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Julia Stiles often think that she is a "softy", but later find out that she is strong willed and pursues her goals aggressively.
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Julia Stiles believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Stiles' gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Julia Stiles craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Julia likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Julia Stiles loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Julia Stiles also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Stiles, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Julia Stiles believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Julia Stiles hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Stiles' relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Julia Stiles to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Julia Stiles would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Julia Stiles to do so.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Stiles. Julia Stiles 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. Julia Stiles may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Julia Stiles is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Julia does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Stiles, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Julia Stiles 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. Julia has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Julia sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Julia really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Although Julia Stiles prefers harmony and accord, she also has a confrontational side.
She is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Julia Stiles has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Julia Stiles has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
Julia Stiles aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Stiles' great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Julia.
While Julia Stiles deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, she is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in her affections. Stiles can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
While Julia Stiles does have a strong drive, she frequently holds herself back. One of her challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in her life (or her own internal caution and resistance!).
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Stiles' optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Julia Stiles tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
She may have had a demanding and perfectionist or absent father. In any case, a lack of support and approval, a great deal of responsibility at an early age and an underlying feeling that she can never quite measure up may hold Stiles back. While she may encounter a great deal of adversity and struggle alone through many of life's trials, this makes Julia Stiles tough and determined. However, Stiles should beware of becoming cynical, too hard on herself, and too demanding and critical of others.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Julia blends charm and energy. Julia Stiles has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. She may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Julia, and her romantic relationships are passionate.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to her. Julia Stiles probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. She tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Julia's well-being.
Julia Stiles has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance she has to overcome. Whatever she does, she knows what she wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
