Teresa Heinz Kerry
The combination of her direct, forthright manner described in the previous chapter, and her innate sense of diplomacy and fairness (described below) makes Teresa Heinz Kerry a natural manager, consultant or lawyer. Kerry can see all points of view and then adopt a leadership role to resolve any differences. Her personal relationships, while enormously important to her, must allow for a lot of personal freedom and self-expression. At times she may find herself torn between doing what she wants to do - no holds barred - and accommodating other people. Both impulses are very strong in Teresa.
Harmony and balance are her keynotes. Teresa Heinz Kerry instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and she is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Teresa does all she can to avoid conflict and discord. Her spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and she often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Kerry since she can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make her own decisions. Kerry will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. She prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on her own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Teresa Heinz Kerry, and she has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Teresa Heinz Kerry invests a great deal of her energy in personal love relationships and she is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Teresa Heinz Kerry seeks a partner who is her equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. She makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and she enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Kerry perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Teresa Heinz Kerry appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in her personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to her. If Teresa Heinz Kerry fights about anything, it is often about something she feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Teresa. She believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Teresa Heinz Kerry also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Kerry dresses and furnishes her home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to her.
Her energies are directed to either perfecting her techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Teresa Heinz Kerry's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Kerry can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
Teresa Heinz Kerry 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. Teresa Heinz Kerry has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
She may have had a demanding and perfectionist or absent father. In any case, a lack of support and approval, a great deal of responsibility at an early age and an underlying feeling that she can never quite measure up may hold Kerry back. While she may encounter a great deal of adversity and struggle alone through many of life's trials, this makes Teresa Heinz Kerry tough and determined. However, Kerry should beware of becoming cynical, too hard on herself, and too demanding and critical of others.
