Although Sanaa Lathan approaches life instinctively and intuitively (as described on the previous page), she also has a very analytical, rational, unemotional side, as discussed below. Her conflicting urges may vacillate between living passionately and dangerously, and being conservative and playing it safe.
At heart Sanaa Lathan is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Sanaa Lathan has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Lathan can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in her work and she takes pride in a job well done. What she may lack in self-confidence Sanaa Lathan often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Lathan can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Sanaa Lathan likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Lathan. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Lathan can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Lathan tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Sanaa has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Lathan can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Sanaa Lathan seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.
She is cautious, realistic and practical in her approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Sanaa Lathan analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Lathan allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Lathan. Sanaa Lathan has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Sanaa Lathan may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
The above description of Sanaa Lathan is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Sanaa Lathan 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.
Sanaa Lathan 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 Sanaa does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Lathan, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Inwardly she is zealous and fanatical, though she may hide her personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of her feelings. She is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Sanaa is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Sanaa Lathan tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and she often seeks to emulate them. Sanaa has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
She may be a bit high-strung and over-zealous in the pursuit of her endeavors. Lathan always seems to be in a hurry and has the ability to evaluate situations quickly. Sanaa Lathan has a brilliant mind and possibly could invent something.
