Though Willa Ford seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is also quite idealistic, as described below. She may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Willa Ford has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
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, Willa Ford 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, Ford can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Willa 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. Willa Ford 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. Willa Ford seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Willa makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Willa Ford 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. Willa Ford stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Willa Ford was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Willa 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.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Ford. Willa Ford has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Willa Ford may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Willa Ford, between her conscious attitudes and aspirations, and her deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs, and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Willa may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with her subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in her body may well be a signal that Willa Ford is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Willa Ford will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of her and to express both of them. If she cannot do this, Ford is apt to attract many relationships into her life with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities, and who seem to make her life difficult. (Read also chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
She is an original! Willa Ford radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things she is interested in, and conveys this to others, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Willa does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Willa blends charm and energy. Willa Ford has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. She may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Willa, and her romantic relationships are passionate.
