Not only is Oprah Winfrey restless and adventurous (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she also has a rebellious, unconventional streak and really wants to have a significant impact on the world. She is a very active person and likely to be involved in community affairs as well as successful in her business or career.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Oprah Winfrey cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Winfrey can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Oprah has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Oprah Winfrey probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Oprah Winfrey seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Oprah makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Oprah Winfrey thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Oprah Winfrey stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Oprah Winfrey was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Oprah has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Ownership gives Oprah Winfrey a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Oprah also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Oprah Winfrey is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Oprah does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Winfrey, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
While Oprah Winfrey deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, she is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in her affections. Winfrey can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Oprah Winfrey has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Oprah Winfrey tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
