Although Julie Christie appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". Christie 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 Julie Christie 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. Julie Christie 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 Christie's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Julie Christie 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. Julie likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Julie Christie 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, Julie Christie also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Christie, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Julie Christie believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Julie Christie 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 Christie's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Julie Christie to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Julie Christie would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Julie Christie to do so.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Christie. Julie Christie has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Julie Christie may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Julie Christie 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 Julie does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Christie, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Julie Christie tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she could have been dominated in her relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Christie may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain her desires in underhanded ways.
Julie's hypersensitivity to her environment is apt to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Julie Christie more than most people.
Christie is very thorough and takes her time thinking things through. She enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Julie Christie also could find traveling very rewarding.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to her. Julie Christie probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. She tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Julie's well-being.
