When reading the previous chapter and this one, Tyra Banks will notice that there are some significant differences between how she comes across to others and how she is at heart. Her warm, supportive, nurturing side, described in the previous chapter, can conflict with her freedom-loving side, which is described below. In short, she may feel torn between taking care of others and "flying free". Tyra Banks must maintain a balance so that she has enough time and freedom to explore, travel and play. Striving for this balance is an endless challenge for Banks. As kind and sympathetic as she is, there are limits to the amount of time and energy she can dedicate to taking care of other people. Those who really know Tyra understand that she is an adventurer at heart, and personal commitments (especially when others depend on her) easily become burdensome.
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 Tyra Banks, 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. Tyra Banks 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. Banks 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. Tyra Banks has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Banks always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Tyra Banks has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Tyra 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.
Banks 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, Tyra's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Tyra Banks 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 Banks.
Tyra Banks has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and she loves to perform. Tyra enjoys being the center of attention and she seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. She is very involved in her own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using her special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Tyra Banks has a strong sense of pride.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to her at just the right time. Because Tyra Banks is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate successes in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Tyra should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
Sensitive and imaginative, she is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Tyra Banks is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Tyra has an abundance of dreams, visions and longings, but does not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them materialize. Gentle, idealistic and peace loving, Tyra often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Tyra has an ethereal quality about her.
Tyra Banks has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and she likes to share her intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
She is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Tyra Banks could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Tyra likes to flirt and tends to fall in love at first sight, but she then transfers her affections to someone else for no apparent reason.
