Keshia Knight Pulliam
Behind Pulliam's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), she is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Pulliam's character is described in more detail in this chapter.
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. Keshia Knight Pulliam 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 Pulliam's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Keshia Knight Pulliam 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. Keshia likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Keshia Knight Pulliam 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, Keshia Knight Pulliam also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Pulliam, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Keshia Knight Pulliam believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Keshia Knight Pulliam 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 Pulliam's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Keshia Knight Pulliam to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Keshia Knight Pulliam would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Keshia Knight Pulliam to do so.
Her energies are directed toward either honing her professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Keshia Knight Pulliam is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and she is quite a perfectionist!
Pulliam can easily become overly identified or involved with the task she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Keshia Knight Pulliam between her conscious attitudes and aspirations and her deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Keshia may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with her subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in her body may well be a signal that Keshia Knight Pulliam is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Keshia Knight Pulliam will learn to accept and express these two different sides of herself. Should she fail to do so, Pulliam is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities and seem to make her life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
At times Keshia Knight Pulliam may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When her life becomes too predictable, Keshia may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Keshia Knight Pulliam that needs to be expressed now and then.
She is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. Her spiritual values color Keshia's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
She is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on her agenda. Keshia Knight Pulliam confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach her about power and eventually force Pulliam to claim her own.
Keshia Knight Pulliam is a restless spirit, a bit self-willed, and she has a tendency to overstrain her nervous system. She is easily aroused and quick to explode when things do not meet her expectations. She is highly individualistic, resourceful and determined.
Keshia Knight Pulliam tends to become excited and upset at the slightest cause, generating tension with others. Keshia also could encounter strange experiences or coincidences with others. She may have a feeling of being different than others and she wants to be her own person.
