At first she may simply come across as clever and witty (as described on the previous page), but it soon becomes clear that there are ideals and causes that she takes very much to heart. As described below, Virginia Woolf is an innovator and an idealist at heart. She is an active person who needs to participate in community activities and is likely to be successful at whatever academic or business profession she chooses.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Virginia Woolf cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Woolf can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Virginia has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Virginia Woolf probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Virginia Woolf seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Virginia makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Virginia Woolf thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Virginia Woolf stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Virginia Woolf was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Virginia has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Woolf.
Virginia Woolf has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Virginia Woolf 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 Virginia does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Woolf, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
While Virginia Woolf deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, she is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in her affections. Woolf can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Virginia Woolf has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Virginia Woolf tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
