Missy Elliott seems much more objective, unemotional and matter-of-fact than she really is. Despite her fussiness and perfectionism (described in the previous chapter), she is actually very caring and loving. Missy Elliott needs to make sure to openly express her feelings because otherwise, others do not realize how much she cares about them.
Missy has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Elliott to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Elliott tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Missy likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Missy Elliott has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Missy Elliott than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Missy Elliott takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Missy Elliott feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Missy Elliott needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Missy Elliott becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Missy Elliott functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Elliott often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Missy Elliott also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Elliott's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Elliott. Missy Elliott has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Missy Elliott may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, her life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Missy Elliott is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Elliott has a rebellious streak and she often feels she is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to her.
Missy Elliott feels physically strong and fit and has a healthy sex-life. Her actions are governed by a strong sense of honor and integrity. Elliott is ambitious with a talent for organizing and a strong desire to succeed, insuring by that her professional success.
She may find it hard to establish relationships with other people and she tends to look for more timid partners. Missy Elliott could also have difficulty expressing her ideas to others as well as coming to an understanding with them.
