Simone de Beauvoir
Although she is intensely emotional and fervent in her loves and hates (as described on the previous page), Simone de Beauvoir is also pragmatic and able to swing to the opposite extreme and be completely dispassionate and unsentimental, especially when it suits her overall aims.
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 de Beauvoir. Simone de Beauvoir 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.
Simone de Beauvoir has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Simone de Beauvoir 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. Simone 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. Simone de Beauvoir 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, Simone de Beauvoir 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 de Beauvoir.
de Beauvoir'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.
Ownership gives Simone de Beauvoir a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Simone also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Simone de Beauvoir 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. Simone de Beauvoir has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, she identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Simone de Beauvoir insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Simone needs a lifestyle that allows her to be spontaneous. She often feels that she is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
Simone de Beauvoir is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to her own detriment. Her ideals and spiritual values motivate Simone de Beauvoir, and she cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what she does. Otherwise Simone de Beauvoir becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Simone.
de Beauvoir is capable of extraordinary physical or mental efforts to gain success and achieve something that will bring her recognition and respect. Simone de Beauvoir has a strong need for authority and power over others and is likely to perform better in a leading position.
