Princess Nori of Japan
Behind Sayako Kuroda's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), she is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Sayako Kuroda's character is described in more detail in this chapter.
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. Princess Nori of Japan 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 Sayako Kuroda's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Princess Nori of Japan 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. Princess Nori likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Princess Nori of Japan 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, Princess Nori of Japan also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Sayako Kuroda, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Princess Nori of Japan believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Princess Nori of Japan 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 Sayako Kuroda's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Princess Nori of Japan to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Princess Nori of Japan would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Princess Nori of Japan to do so.
Princess Nori of Japan has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and she loves to perform. Princess Nori enjoys being the center of attention and she seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. She is very involved in her own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using her special talents be they artistic, athletic or intellectual. Princess Nori of Japan has a strong sense of pride.
Sayako Kuroda occasionally gambles, splurges or overextends herself in ways that may be at odds with her usual way of doing things. Exaggerating her accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up her own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Princess Nori of Japan also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable her to recover from the negative consequences of her excesses, and to learn from them.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Sayako Kuroda's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Princess Nori of Japan 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.
Princess Nori of Japan has a mature and often somber demeanor. She is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. She progresses rather slowly in life, through her own efforts and persistence. She is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with herself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for her to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Princess Nori likes to be in control of herself.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Princess Nori of Japan that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Sayako Kuroda can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
At times Princess Nori of Japan may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When her life becomes too predictable, Princess Nori may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Princess Nori of Japan that needs to be expressed now and then.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Princess Nori of Japan also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Princess Nori of Japan tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Sayako Kuroda may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve her desires in underhanded ways.
Princess Nori's hypersensitivity to her environment is likely to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Princess Nori of Japan more than most people.
Princess Nori of Japan 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.
She is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel her energies productively. Princess Nori of Japan may feel that everything is going to be all right, that she cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
With her charm and outgoing personality Princess Nori of Japan has no trouble attracting people and she enjoys pleasant and congenial relationships with them. She may choose social contact with generous or wealthy people and would prefer to live in a beautiful home.
