Although Pola Negri has a warm, dramatic side and she really likes to show off or stand out in some way (as described on the previous page), inside she is much too grounded, conservative and cautious to let herself get too overwrought or wild. And while Negri may seem kind hearted and generous, she is quite unsentimental and businesslike on issues that are important to her.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Negri. Pola Negri will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Pola Negri has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Pola Negri seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Pola has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Pola Negri has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Pola Negri plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Negri.
Negri's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
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. Pola Negri is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and she is quite a perfectionist!
Negri can easily become overly identified or involved with the task she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
The above description of Pola Negri is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Pola Negri 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.
Pola Negri tends to struggle with how to assert her will and she gets what she wants in life in a way that she feels good about. Negri may be unsure about when to use force and take decisive action, and she may occasionally become inappropriately aggressive or pushy. Pola Negri may also disapprove of her own anger, competitiveness or aggressive impulses - and thus have difficulty accessing her personal power. Learning to accept and express her "masculine" or "yang" qualities in a positive manner is a challenge for Negri.
Pola has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Negri many allies and successes in life.
She is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything she does. Her extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Pola Negri does not always consciously understand why she feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as she does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Negri's life. A significant death or loss in her close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Pola Negri and shape important life decisions and she may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Negri depends a great deal on other people's reactions to her and rarely acts until she sees how she affects others. Pola Negri must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Pola should also learn to rely heavily on her hunches.
