Sara has two conflicting interests that she tries to resolve. As described in the previous chapter, she loves to nurture and support others, and family relationships are very important to Gilbert. However, there is another side to Sara Gilbert: at heart she is a very independent person and she needs to participate in community endeavors and be involved with the world at large. Having a meaningful career and being involved in a larger circle of friends and associates is important to her as well. There are many ways to satisfy both of these sides. She may become an advocate for family needs or women's and children's issues in the workplace and in society as a whole. Or she may simply lend a personal, supportive, human touch to the impersonal atmosphere of business or academia. One negative possibility, however, is that she is may become very dogmatic about her own personal concerns and biases, not realizing how many of her social, political and even scientific views are rooted in personal experience rather than objective criteria.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Sara Gilbert cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Gilbert can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Sara has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Sara Gilbert probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Sara Gilbert seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Sara makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Sara Gilbert thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Sara Gilbert stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Sara Gilbert was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Sara has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Sara Gilbert craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable or taboo. Sara may hide her interests or inclinations, except from those who know her very intimately. Sara Gilbert is rarely content with herself and her life, and she has an inner urge to continually delve deeper than ever before. Sara is also highly interested in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
She is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on her inner attunement. Sara Gilbert takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Sara, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Sara Gilbert may not realize she has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to her.
Sara Gilbert deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Sara has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, she pursues her desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and she may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Sara likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
