She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Laura Bernieri will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Laura has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Laura Bernieri very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Bernieri is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Laura Bernieri will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others.

She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner.
