Patty Hearst often senses a conflict between her discriminating, analytical, critical side (described in the previous chapter), and her tolerant, forgiving side (described below). Consequently, Hearst tends to seesaw - at times criticizing and correcting others while at others, forgiving them for the most egregious errors and inadequacies. Patty Hearst should strive to find a balance between clarity and justice on the one hand, and mercy and compassion on the other.
Hearst's urge to serve, help and improve the life of others is strong, and she is quite willing to make personal sacrifices to do so.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Patty Hearst as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Hearst may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Patty Hearst usually keeps to herself.
Patty shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Patty has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Patty Hearst sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Hearst tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Patty has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Hearst will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Hearst tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Patty Hearst does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Patty Hearst has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Hearst more than it bothers her.
Her energies are directed toward either honing her professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Patty Hearst is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and she is quite a perfectionist!
Hearst can easily become overly identified or involved with the task she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
Patty Hearst 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 Patty does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Hearst, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Although Patty Hearst prefers harmony and accord, she also has a confrontational side.
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Patty Hearst often feels that she needs to fight to get what she wants, and she tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. She is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
Patty Hearst has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance she has to overcome. Whatever she does, she knows what she wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
