The way Suha Arafat comes across to others is very congruent with her true nature so "what she sees is what you get". The description below reinforces what you read about Suha in the previous chapter.
Suha has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Arafat to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Arafat tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Suha likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Suha Arafat has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Suha Arafat than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Suha Arafat takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Suha Arafat feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Suha Arafat needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Suha Arafat becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Suha Arafat functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Arafat often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Suha Arafat also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Arafat's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Suha Arafat has a clear sense of her own self and she therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who she is and what she wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Arafat can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Suha Arafat feels a need to be in control of her own life and she can be too self-involved, too immersed in her own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Suha Arafat 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. Suha Arafat has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Arafat can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. Her dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and she sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Suha Arafat enjoys fine health as well.
While Suha Arafat does have a strong drive, she frequently holds herself back. One of her challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in her life (or her own internal caution and resistance!).
Suha has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from her father or other significant men in her life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Suha and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of her greatest handicaps, and at times she may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of her own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in her life. Suha Arafat needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities say.
Her emotions are very intense and Suha Arafat is excited quite easily. Love is very important to her and she is constantly seeking emotional fulfillment, but she will not waste time with casual relationships.
Suha Arafat has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and she likes to share her intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
She prefers more serious kinds of conversation with her friends and neighbors rather than small talk. Because her communication is clear and concise, Suha Arafat can impress others by taking control of negotiations or business dealings.
