Tina Turner's self-centeredness (described in the previous chapter), combined with her expansive, freewheeling style (described below), makes for a highly dynamic, energetic and enthusiastic person. Others feel that Tina Turner sometimes comes on too strong, and Turner can be overly zealous in trying to convince others of the value of a product, philosophy or other interest in her life. Overall, however, Tina's liveliness and enthusiasm are wonderful gifts that everyone appreciates.
She is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. She is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. She needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to her.
To Tina Turner, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for her to decide where to focus her attention and efforts. Tina Turner probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before she settled on a particular career. Or she may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, she is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not her strong points. Turner can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, she has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Tina Turner has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Turner always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Tina Turner has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Tina has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and she likes to theorize and speculate. However, she gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement her theories.
Turner expresses herself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because she does not take herself too seriously, she may not realize how deeply her candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though she may not realize it, Tina's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Tina Turner enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and she does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. She is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares her ideals, her sense of fun and her zest for life would be the right companion for Turner.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Tina Turner prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Turner invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and her inner life.
Tina Turner 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. Tina Turner has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Her conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by her unconscious beliefs and desires. If Tina Turner 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 Tina Turner 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 direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Tina Turner often feels that she needs to fight to get what she wants, and she tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. She is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
Tina Turner deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Tina has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, she pursues her desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and she may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Tina likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
