Mavis Staples has frequent emotional outbursts due to her fiery temper and emotional impulsiveness. Staples expresses herself very directly and honestly and no one has to guess what her true feelings are. However, Mavis Staples dislikes showing any personal weakness or her need for support, comfort and nurturing. She is often impatient with herself and others. Mavis abhors emotional dependency and dislikes "complainers".
Mavis Staples inspires others to take positive action in their lives through her own enthusiasm and eagerness to meet life's challenges, and she is attracted to people who are adventurous, courageous and independent. Mavis is rather bossy but does not like to be with people that she can boss around too much. She enjoys a good fight sometimes. Relationships that are built on mutual respect and emotional freedom are ideal for Staples.
Mavis Staples becomes very cross if she lacks vigorous physical activity. Staples feels her best if she frequently "does battle" on the tennis or racquetball court (or engages in another form of competitive sport).
Staples depends a great deal upon other people for emotional support and she has a large "family" of friends who care about her and treat her as kin. The women in Mavis' life are particularly important to her, and her relationships with them have a powerful impact on her sense of security and happiness. Mavis Staples may be overly dependent and unsure of herself without a close partner.
Serious and emotionally reserved, Mavis Staples was probably never an exuberant, playful child, and she rarely expresses herself in a spontaneous, childlike manner. She is cautious about letting others get close to her and sometimes withdraws from people altogether. At times, Mavis Staples feels lonely or isolated, even when she is with people. Learning to appreciate her own company and find satisfying solitary activities is essential to Mavis' emotional well-being.
Mavis has intense desires and feelings and her personal relationships are deeply emotional, passionate and often stormy and painful as well. Mavis Staples has powerful magnetic relationships with those she cares about, and she could become emotionally obsessed by another person. Her feelings can become so urgent and compelling that she behaves irrationally. Mavis Staples undergoes periodic emotional upheavals and purging when she must break all ties with the past and begin anew.
Sensitive and sentimental, Mavis Staples is deeply attached to her family, old friends, familiar places and the past. She is romantic and tender in love relationships, and it is of utmost importance to Staples to remember birthdays, anniversaries, family rituals and other personally significant days. Mavis Staples seeks caring, emotional support, and security in her love relationships. Mavis likes to be needed, as well as to cherish and protect her loved ones, of whom she is somewhat possessive.
Mavis is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling and people who can expand her horizons, teach her something, or show her places and worlds she has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with her love partner is important to her.
Moreover, Mavis Staples feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only for her own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of hers.
There can be a lack of harmony or satisfaction in Staples' romantic relationships - not necessarily a great deal of open conflict, but simply an underlying tension or discontent. This is because the people Mavis Staples finds likeable, lovable, and agreeable may not be attuned to her sexual tastes and needs. Another, more direct way of saying this is that the people Mavis loves and the people Mavis wants to make love with are very different from one another. Mavis Staples may be confused about what she really needs and wants in personal relationships. Staples needs to acknowledge that she has some conflicting desires (such as a partner who is very gentle and sensitive but also a powerful, dominant personality; security and commitment in love relationships alongside a great deal of freedom and excitement.) Trying to satisfy both sides of the equation can be a tricky challenge.
In love relationships and romance, it is important for Mavis Staples to be able to deeply respect her partner. Mavis looks beyond the superficial qualities to see their inner worth (or lack thereof), before she lets herself really fall for someone. In fact, too much glamour or flashiness is something of a turn-off for her. Mavis Staples is capable of mature, lasting, loving relationships and seeks a mate who is deep, loyal, and committed. She may be drawn to someone older than her.
Her artistic feeling or perception gives Mavis Staples a strong creative potential. Mavis has the ability to think in forms or shapes and also to tune into rhythms such as dancing, gymnastics and song. Her physical coordination could be excellent as well.
