What is Cris Kirkwood’s Personality Type?
Of a fairly introspective nature, you are attentive to your special inner qualities which enable you to perceive the very essence of the people you meet, the situations you encounter, and the objects you see. You have the ability to understand through your intuition, which is based upon an openness to the other, and thus a certain duality: a budding extroversion and the predominance of the object over the subject (yourself) in your consciousness. As a result, you have a strong sense of the group and would sacrifice your own ego rather than commit something that is a sin in your eyes, neglecting your social obligations or failing to fulfill your duties to the people you are close to. You can sometimes be perceived by others as unreliable or untrustworthy, based on a sort of opportunism or disloyalty. However, these are superficial characteristics. The real reason for your behavior is psychological and resides in the fact that you are ready to do anything to maintain the harmony of the group (or simply satisfy the expectations of the other). However, you sometimes lack self-assertion, and this makes you contradictory and unreliable when you face certain superficial decisions. Moreover, you have a chameleon-like ability to blend in with situations and prevailing moods, which makes you quite successful in social settings. Your mind is amazingly flexible, arranging harmonious and productive encounters between people and ideas. All of your emotional health is invested in a desire to participate, to mingle, to exchange. Although you are consciously aware of an ardent desire to be sociable, unconsciously you blame yourself for failing to achieve your ideal goal, which always seems to elude you. This is why you sometimes have phases of discouragement, followed by renewed zeal in your work efforts or group participation. Because you are always seeking the perfect group, the ideal form of cooperation, you sometimes despair of ever attaining it. You have a natural tendency to find common ground for people, to reconcile differing opinions and viewpoints, and you are partial to any arrangement which promotes cooperation or fellowship. Because you are not aggressive by nature, you know how to make peace; you are a skillful diplomat and go-between. As a corollary to your opening to society, you are closely related to your environment. The society in which you move contributes in large part to the formation of your character and attitude. Through social contacts and friendships, you have elaborated a personal code of ethics which reconciles societal norms and the values your family, friends, and relations have passed on to
Due to the influence of Capricorn rising, Cris Kirkwood has a personality that may seem somewhat aloof and introspective. In fact, she is not inclined to submit to anyone’s influence, and leads the independent, solitary life of the individualist. Sometimes skeptical (if not pessimistic) and resigned, she is still shrewd and objective in her insights and judgments. She has a fairly severe, “no-frills” vision of life, and only the pure, bare essence really matters to her. Her personal stability tends to be founded on enduring valuesâ€”philosophical or scientific facts in relation to spiritual value. Sometimes she seems detached and weary, or disillusioned, and she does not readily express her feelings and emotions. However, her inner sensitivity should not be underestimated. Although her demeanor is serious, it is tempered by a desire for company and sociability which is best satisfied by group activities. When her sense of administration and social responsibility take over, she engages herself with enthusiasm. She has an instinct for parceling out energies as a function of long-term strategy, and could easily become an efficient and highly respected manager of some kind.
Cris Kirkwood has high social aspirations. She believes that by gaining total control of her intellect, feelings, and instincts, she can achieve them.
Cris Kirkwood has a strong personality; she is sometimes a little self-centered. Her fate is in her own hands!
At the time of your birth, the sun was located in the sign of Libra and your rising sign was Capricorn. A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide your personality profile. The following key words capture the essence of your character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources of tension:Sociability – Need for security – Adaptability – Inhibition – Emotionality – Application – Tolerance – Methodical mind – Peaceful disposition – Forethought – Sense of harmony – Loyalty – Worldliness. You live by the motto “Moderation in all things.” It is natural for you to postpone your aims and have patience to avoid violence and clashes which would be unbearable for you. Vacillating between tolerance and intransigence, your personal ambitions and your need to be recognized by and associated with others, you may sometimes feel somewhat misguided or misunderstood. However, your discernment and sense of harmony make you someone everyone respects, even though sometimes you may be so careful not to rock the boat that you seem a bit prudish and conventional. Although you are flexible, you can reconcile viewpoints without making a mockery of the truth, because you are against falsehoods and fraud. Your innate sense of harmony in any form could enable you to study such diverse fields as mathematics, philosophy, or social sciences. Your gift for human relations, associated with your strategic and tactical talents, might also predispose you to a diplomatic or political career.
Born in the three days after the rising of the new moon, you are said to be a “new moon” lunar type. This “soli-lunar” configuration gives you a subjective character, somewhat impulsive and sometimes emotive. Generally, you do not see the world in objective terms; instead, you base your attitude on the feelings various situations arouse inside you. Likewise, in human relationships, you tend to project your imaginary reality onto others instead of seeing them for what they are. As a result, your judgements and reasoning are sometimes deprived of perspective. You may want to make an effort to refrain from overinterpreting other people’s actions, because, being the product of your imagination in most cases, your interpretations are mistaken. If you apply yourself to listening more openly, people may reveal their deeper motivations. You’ll be happier and more effective as a result.
