Behind Ventura's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), she is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Ventura'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. Simona Ventura 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 Ventura's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Simona Ventura 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. Simona likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Simona Ventura 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, Simona Ventura also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Ventura, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Simona Ventura believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Simona Ventura 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 Ventura's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Simona Ventura to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Simona Ventura would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Simona Ventura to do so.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Simona Ventura prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Ventura invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and inner life.
The above description of Simona Ventura is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Simona Ventura 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.
Simona Ventura 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 Simona does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Ventura, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Although Simona Ventura prefers harmony and accord, she also has a confrontational side.
Simona Ventura tends to struggle with how to assert her will and she gets what she wants in life in a way that she feels good about. Ventura may be unsure about when to use force and take decisive action, and she may occasionally become inappropriately aggressive or pushy. Simona Ventura may also disapprove of her own anger, competitiveness or aggressive impulses - and thus have difficulty accessing her personal power. Learning to accept and express her "masculine" or "yang" qualities in a positive manner is a challenge for Ventura.
At times Simona Ventura 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, Simona 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 Simona Ventura that needs to be expressed now and then.
She is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything she does. Her extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Simona Ventura does not always consciously understand why she feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as she does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Ventura's life. A significant death or loss in her close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Simona Ventura and shape important life decisions and she may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
