Much of what is stated in the previous chapter is similar to what is stated in this one. Marilyn Bell's need to relate openly and honestly to others is very strong. Marilyn has to be wary of the tendency to be so strongly influenced by the ideas and opinions of others that she is unsure of her own.
Harmony and balance are her keynotes. Marilyn Bell instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and she is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Marilyn does all she can to avoid conflict and discord. Her spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and she often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Bell since she can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make her own decisions. Bell will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. She prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on her own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Marilyn Bell, and she has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Marilyn Bell invests a great deal of her energy in personal love relationships and she is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Marilyn Bell seeks a partner who is her equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. She makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and she enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Bell perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Marilyn Bell appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in her personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to her. If Marilyn Bell fights about anything, it is often about something she feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Marilyn. She believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Marilyn Bell also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Bell dresses and furnishes her home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to her.
Marilyn Bell has a clear sense of her own self and she therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who she is and what she wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Bell can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Marilyn Bell feels a need to be in control of her own life and she can be too self-involved, too immersed in her own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Marilyn Bell tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Marilyn Bell has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Marilyn often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Bell is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Marilyn Bell tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Marilyn Bell both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
