Behind Henie's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), she is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Henie'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. Sonja Henie 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 Henie's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Sonja Henie 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. Sonja likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Sonja Henie 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, Sonja Henie also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Henie, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Sonja Henie believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Sonja Henie 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 Henie's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Sonja Henie to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Sonja Henie would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Sonja Henie to do so.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Sonja Henie prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Henie invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and inner life.
Sonja has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Henie many allies and successes in life.
Sonja is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and she can get lost in her dreams, fantasies and visions. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Sonja Henie is also drawn to mysticism and she has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Henie may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make her way in the world. She is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
Her physical energy is strong and Sonja Henie is able to make an extra effort and work quite hard at any task she wants to do. Henie can act quickly and she gets a great deal accomplished in a hurry. But Sonja Henie also has a tendency to be reckless and accident-prone.
