Spacek's 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 Spacek. Sissy Spacek 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.
Sissy Spacek has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Sissy Spacek 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. Sissy 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. Sissy Spacek 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, Sissy Spacek 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 Spacek.
Spacek'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.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Sissy Spacek prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Spacek invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and inner life.
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Sissy Spacek often feels that she needs to fight to get what she wants, and she tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. She is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Sissy Spacek cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Sissy finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Spacek to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Sissy Spacek has a very creative, inventive streak.
