Behind Plath's seemingly rational, detached, cool and objective demeanor (as described on the previous page), she is really far more passionate and emotionally intense, as described below.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Sylvia Plath is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and she only allows a special few into her inner world. Like a wary animal, she is cautious and mistrustful of those she does not know until "he sniffs them out". She is highly instinctive and intuitive. Sylvia Plath usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though she may be unable to clearly articulate why she feels the way she does. Her feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Sylvia Plath also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and she forms very intense love bonds and attachments. She is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that she perceives as a threat to her relationship with someone she loves. When Sylvia Plath commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Sylvia merges with or "marries" the person she loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for her, and often stormy and nasty. When Plath has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Sylvia will most certainly never forget the hurt and she often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to her.
Whatever she does, Sylvia does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Plath can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Plath can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Sylvia Plath emotionally detached and objective. She definitely has a fanatical streak. She is also immensely strong-willed and her tenacity in pursuing her objectives often borders on obsession. She is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Sylvia Plath loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Sylvia never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Sylvia Plath tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Sylvia Plath craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable, or taboo. She may hide her interests or inclinations, except from those who know Sylvia very intimately. Sylvia Plath is rarely content with herself and her life, and she has an inner urge to be continually going farther or deeper than her ever have before. Sylvia has also a strong interest in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to her. Sylvia Plath probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. She tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Sylvia's well-being.
