Miles' quiet, unassuming, rather modest facade (described in the previous chapter) is liable to mask certain far less modest goals and ambitions in life. Materially (or in other ways), she is much more aspiring than she may seem, and reaching the top academically or professionally is really 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 Miles. Sarah Miles 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 Miles has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Sarah Miles 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 Miles 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 Miles 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 Miles.
Miles' strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Sarah Miles prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Miles invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and inner life.
Sarah Miles tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Sarah Miles has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
She is a bit impulsive and excitable and wants things done quickly. Sarah Miles tends to be very impatient with anyone who is slower or less energetic than she is. Miles will fight for what she wants but should guard against mishaps or accidents.
Miles is capable of extraordinary physical or mental efforts to gain success and achieve something that will bring her recognition and respect. Sarah Miles has a strong need for authority and power over others and is likely to perform better in a leading position.
