Though Susan Hayward seems powerful and intense in a quiet sort of way (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is really quite soft, sentimental and vulnerable inside.
Susan 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 Hayward to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Hayward 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. Susan likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Susan Hayward 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 Susan Hayward 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. Susan Hayward takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Susan Hayward feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Susan Hayward needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Susan Hayward becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Susan Hayward functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Hayward often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Susan Hayward 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 Hayward'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.
Susan Hayward craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable or taboo. Susan may hide her interests or inclinations, except from those who know her very intimately. Susan Hayward is rarely content with herself and her life, and she has an inner urge to continually delve deeper than ever before. Susan is also highly interested in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Inwardly she is zealous and fanatical, though she may hide her personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of her feelings. She is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Susan is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Susan Hayward tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and she often seeks to emulate them. Susan has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
Her vitality is not up to par and her will-power a bit weak, making Susan Hayward vulnerable to swindle or deceit. Her inner discontent and casual attitude could easily lead Hayward into dubious schemes. Susan should refrain from any activity that seems to be subversive.
Susan Hayward has a restless and somewhat nervous manner and she attracts attention through her initiative and originality. She is drawn to unusual friends and acquaintances, and because of her confidence may be regarded as a leader in her sphere.
