Although it may seem that she is just patiently plodding along, Sophie Tucker is actually quite shrewd and has a clear purpose in mind. She is far more astute and ambitious than her rather gentle, forbearing manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest.
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 Tucker. Sophie Tucker 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.
Sophie Tucker has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Sophie Tucker 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. Sophie 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. Sophie Tucker 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, Sophie Tucker 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 Tucker.
Tucker'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.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Tucker. Sophie Tucker has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Sophie Tucker may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Sophie Tucker often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Sophie has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Sophie sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Sophie really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
She is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. She enjoys competition, and her initiative and self-confidence make Sophie Tucker a winner.
Along with her energy and drive, Sophie Tucker has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Tucker, as well as a doer and a fighter. Sophie wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for her.
She is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. Her spiritual values color Sophie's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Her vitality is not up to par and her will-power a bit weak, making Sophie Tucker vulnerable to swindle or deceit. Her inner discontent and casual attitude could easily lead Tucker into dubious schemes. Sophie should refrain from any activity that seems to be subversive.
She is a bit impulsive and excitable and wants things done quickly. Sophie Tucker tends to be very impatient with anyone who is slower or less energetic than she is. Tucker will fight for what she wants but should guard against mishaps or accidents.
Sophie Tucker tends to impose her will upon others in a rather ruthless way, but on the other hand she may also be imposed upon by others. Sophie feels a constant need to fight for leadership and has a great desire to become a public figure.
