When reading Perrine's description in the preceding chapter, one would never guess that behind her direct and self-assured manner lies a great deal of caution and self-doubt. Part of Valerie Perrine wants to take risks and forge ahead; the other part is far more cautious and sees all the ways her ventures could fail. Moreover, as mentioned below, precision and meticulous attention to detail are actually strong points of Valerie's, though one might be deceived at first by her impetuous manner.
At heart Valerie Perrine is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Valerie Perrine has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Perrine can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in her work and she takes pride in a job well done. What she may lack in self-confidence Valerie Perrine often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Perrine can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Valerie Perrine likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Perrine. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Perrine can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Perrine tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Valerie has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Perrine can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Valerie Perrine seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.
She is cautious, realistic and practical in her approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Valerie Perrine analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Perrine allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Her energies are directed toward either honing her professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Valerie Perrine is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and she is quite a perfectionist!
Perrine can easily become overly identified or involved with the task she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
Valerie Perrine 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 Valerie does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Perrine, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
Although Valerie Perrine prefers harmony and accord, she also has a confrontational side.
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Valerie Perrine 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.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, her life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Valerie Perrine is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Perrine 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.
Valerie Perrine probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Valerie never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But she also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
Valerie Perrine 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.
