Behind Bailey's rather solid, conservative appearance (as described on the previous page), she really is a go-getter. While Pearl Bailey seems rather soft, there is actually a lot of fight and spunk in her. Her practical and down-to-earth side may be at odds with the part of Bailey that wants action, exploration, adventure and excitement, but these two facets of her nature can also complement one another. Her pioneering and enterprising spirit is liable to get Pearl Bailey in trouble several times, but eventually her determination to see a project through will succeed.
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Pearl Bailey believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Bailey's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Pearl Bailey craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Pearl likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Pearl Bailey loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Pearl Bailey also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Bailey, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Pearl Bailey believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Pearl Bailey hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Bailey's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Pearl Bailey to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Pearl Bailey would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Pearl Bailey to do so.
Pearl Bailey tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where her efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting herself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Bailey.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to her at just the right time. Because Pearl Bailey is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate successes in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Pearl should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Bailey's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Pearl Bailey tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Realistic and practical, Pearl Bailey sets goals for herself that are modest enough for her to actually achieve. She is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Bailey possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Pearl Bailey also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling her obligations. Bailey often does things because she feels it is expected of her.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Pearl Bailey also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
She is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. Her spiritual values color Pearl's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Pearl often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Bailey is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Pearl Bailey tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Pearl Bailey both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
She is strong-willed, forceful and independent. Bailey knows what she wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. Pearl Bailey tends to judge herself and others quite severely, but she is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
