Behind Long's rather cool, conservative, somewhat impersonal and businesslike demeanor (as described on the previous page), she is much more passionate and emotional. Nia Long often conceals her vulnerability beneath a veneer of toughness or indifference.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Nia Long is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and she only allows a special few into her inner world. Like a wary animal, she is cautious and mistrustful of those she does not know until "he sniffs them out". She is highly instinctive and intuitive. Nia Long usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though she may be unable to clearly articulate why she feels the way she does. Her feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Nia Long also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and she forms very intense love bonds and attachments. She is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that she perceives as a threat to her relationship with someone she loves. When Nia Long commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Nia merges with or "marries" the person she loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for her, and often stormy and nasty. When Long has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Nia will most certainly never forget the hurt and she often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to her.
Whatever she does, Nia does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Long can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Long can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Nia Long emotionally detached and objective. She definitely has a fanatical streak. She is also immensely strong-willed and her tenacity in pursuing her objectives often borders on obsession. She is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Nia Long loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Nia never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Nia Long tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Long is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world.
Nia Long is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
The above description of Nia Long is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Nia Long tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in her makeup and she generally knows what she wants and what will make her happy.
Nia Long tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Nia Long has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
