Behind Griffith's sensible, solid, practical exterior (as described on the previous page) lies a much more flamboyant character, described below.
Proud and intensely individual, Melanie Griffith really wants to stand out, to be the very best she can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for her unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to her, and she cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Melanie Griffith must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Melanie Griffith needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Melanie has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Melanie Griffith also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Melanie Griffith, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and she secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Melanie wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. She needs someone to believe in her and her dreams. Though Griffith appears radiantly self-confident and independent, she is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. She cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Melanie Griffith also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Melanie Griffith loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in her relationships. She is also immensely loyal and will defend her loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend her pride or betray her trust. However, Melanie Griffith likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Melanie needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Griffith's strengths are her zest and love for life, her creative power and her warm and generous heart. Her primary fault is her tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression she is making and with her own creative self-expression that she forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around her.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Melanie Griffith prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Griffith invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and her inner life.
Her conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by her unconscious beliefs and desires. If Melanie Griffith overrides her instincts and emotions because they seem to lead her in a direction diametrically opposed to the one she consciously desires, her emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Melanie Griffith attends to her emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of her intuition, dreams and gut feelings, she will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
Melanie Griffith loves to entertain and likes to cultivate social contacts. She enjoys forming close personal relationships with others and most of them should be harmonious. Melanie prefers teamwork rather than separate efforts to realize her goals.
