Though Luise Rainer seems quite soft and sympathetic (as mentioned in the previous chapter), deep down, she is very hardheaded and practical and Rainer can be surprisingly cool and impassive. She is caring, but at the same time rather detached and unemotional. Luise Rainer has a knack for understanding others because she can empathize with them without getting "sucked into" their problems and concerns. For this reason, she is a good parent. Luise can also be very shrewd in business because she can sense what others want and is clever at finding ways to market products or services that people want.
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 Rainer. Luise Rainer 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.
Luise Rainer has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Luise Rainer 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. Luise 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. Luise Rainer 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, Luise Rainer 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 Rainer.
Rainer'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.
Luise Rainer invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Luise feels that she needs others in order to be all that she can be, and she is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to promote mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Luise Rainer can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.
She is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. She enjoys competition, and her initiative and self-confidence make Luise Rainer a winner.
Along with her energy and drive, Luise Rainer has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Rainer, as well as a doer and a fighter. Luise wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for her.
Luise Rainer is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to her own detriment. Her ideals and spiritual values motivate Luise Rainer, and she cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what she does. Otherwise Luise Rainer becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Luise.
