Behind Tanaka's rather lighthearted, witty and restless demeanor described in the previous chapter, lies a sensitive, poetic soul. Tia Tanaka may cover up her sensitivity with light banter and cleverness - or she may use her verbal and communication skills to express her imagination, kindness and refined sensitivity.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Tia Tanaka as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Tanaka may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Tia Tanaka usually keeps to herself.
Tia shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Tia has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Tia Tanaka sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Tanaka tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Tia has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Tanaka will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Tanaka tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Tia Tanaka does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Tia Tanaka has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Tanaka more than it bothers her.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Tanaka. Tia Tanaka 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. Tia Tanaka may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Her conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by her unconscious beliefs and desires. If Tia Tanaka overrides her instincts and emotions because they seem to lead her in a direction diametrically opposed to the one she consciously desires, her emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Tia Tanaka attends to her emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of her intuition, dreams and gut feelings, she will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Tia Tanaka has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Tia Tanaka tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Tia Tanaka that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Tanaka can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, her life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Tia Tanaka is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Tanaka has a rebellious streak and she often feels she is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to her.
Tia Tanaka 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.
