Although Myrna Loy appears to be unselfish, gentle and somewhat passive (as described on the previous page), Loy really has a strong sense of herself and is a much more dominant individual than she seems to be initially. Myrna Loy also craves personal glory and acclaim much more than she first lets on. She may feel torn, at times, between taking care of herself and giving to others.
Proud and intensely individual, Myrna Loy 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". Myrna Loy must put her personal stamp on whatever she does, and direct her own course in life. Myrna Loy needs to have a place where she can shine, express herself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Myrna has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Myrna Loy also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Myrna Loy, 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. Myrna 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 Loy 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.
Myrna Loy also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person she loves feel special. Myrna Loy 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, Myrna Loy likes to be the strong one in her relationships and she really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Myrna needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Loy'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.
Her energies are directed to either perfecting her techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Myrna Loy's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Loy can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
