Behind Hargitay's rather cautious attitude and conservative appearance (mentioned in the previous chapter) lies a much more unconventional soul. She may seesaw between the traditional and the unorthodox, the pragmatic and the idealistic, or conformism and nonconformism. Mariska Hargitay needs to find a balance or reconcile between these extremes. She may view herself as being more progressive than she is because Mariska Hargitay surrounds herself with middle-of-the-road people. Moreover, her combination of objectivity and interest in world affairs and larger issues is likely to enable Mariska Hargitay to become very successful at her business or whatever career she chooses.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Mariska Hargitay cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Hargitay can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Mariska has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Mariska Hargitay probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Mariska Hargitay seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Mariska makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Mariska Hargitay thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Mariska Hargitay stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Mariska Hargitay was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Mariska has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Mariska Hargitay 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, Hargitay can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Mariska Hargitay 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.
She is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Mariska Hargitay has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Mariska Hargitay has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
