In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Sarah Polley is also objective, pragmatic and quite ambitious. She is likely to work her way to the top of the ladder in some corporation, academic community or the like through her astute strategies combined with her willingness to take risks. Sarah Polley aims to be the authority, the one in charge. At times her impulsiveness may be at odds with her conservative, responsible side (which is discussed below). Polley could experience ongoing internal tension between pleasing herself and acting spontaneously versus doing what she needs to do to get ahead and realize her long-range ambitions.
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 Polley. Sarah Polley 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.
Sarah Polley has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Sarah Polley 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. Sarah 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. Sarah Polley 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, Sarah Polley 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 Polley.
Polley'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 career, reputation and public image are very important to Polley. Sarah Polley 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. Sarah Polley may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
She is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Sarah Polley has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Sarah Polley has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
While Sarah Polley does have a strong drive, she frequently holds herself back. One of her challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in her life (or her own internal caution and resistance!).
Realistic and practical, Sarah Polley 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 Polley possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Sarah Polley also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling her obligations. Polley often does things because she feels it is expected of her.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Sarah Polley that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Polley can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
She is an original! Sarah Polley radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things she is interested in, and conveys this to others, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Sarah does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Sarah often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Polley is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Sarah Polley tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Sarah Polley both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
Sarah Polley 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.
