In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Kirstie Alley is also objective, pragmatic and quite ambitious. She is likely to work her way to the top of the ladder in some corporation, academic community or the like through her astute strategies combined with her willingness to take risks. Kirstie Alley aims to be the authority, the one in charge. At times her impulsiveness may be at odds with her conservative, responsible side (which is discussed below). Alley could experience ongoing internal tension between pleasing herself and acting spontaneously versus doing what she needs to do to get ahead and realize her long-range ambitions.
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 Alley. Kirstie Alley 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.
Kirstie Alley has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Kirstie Alley 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. Kirstie 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. Kirstie Alley 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, Kirstie Alley 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 Alley.
Alley'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 Alley. Kirstie Alley 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. Kirstie Alley may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Alley's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with her conscious intentions and desires, therefore Kirstie Alley is able to proceed in her life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Kirstie's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Kirstie is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Kirstie Alley is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Alley may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
She is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything she does. Her extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Kirstie Alley does not always consciously understand why she feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as she does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Alley's life. A significant death or loss in her close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Kirstie Alley and shape important decisions in her life, and she may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Alley depends a great deal on other people's reactions to her and rarely acts until she sees how she affects others. Kirstie Alley must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Kirstie should also learn to rely heavily on her hunches.
