Although T.R. Knight appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". Knight sometimes feels torn between these two facets of her character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet T.R. Knight often think that she is a "softy", but later find out that she is strong willed and pursues her goals aggressively.
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. T.R. Knight 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 Knight's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
T.R. Knight 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. Theodore likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
T.R. Knight 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, T.R. Knight also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Knight, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. T.R. Knight believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. T.R. Knight 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 Knight's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes T.R. Knight to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. T.R. Knight would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows T.R. Knight to do so.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Knight. T.R. Knight has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. T.R. Knight may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
T.R. Knight is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Theodore does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Knight, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
T.R. Knight 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. Theodore has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Theodore sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Theodore really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening up to her at just the right time. Because T.R. Knight is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate success in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Theodore should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
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 Theodore's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
She is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on her agenda. T.R. Knight confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach her about power and eventually force Knight to claim her own.
