She experiences her inner life as a process of growth and maturation, nurtured by her involvement with others and the positive and negative encounters this generates.
Lexi Rivera’s tendency to introversion inclines her to live inside herself, amid her inner world. She is apt to listen to her subjectivity, her intuition, and her secret opinions rather than reason and logic.
Lexi Rivera’s uppermost concern is her personal, subjective interest. Because the development of her personal identity requires great individual freedom of action, she tries to free herself from outer restraints and limitations. Psychologically self-centered, she remains fairly detached from the social world. She reduces such commitments to the strict minimum. Individualistic and egocentric, she derives her feelings of inner security from her ability to command her will and handle her personal involvements freely and openly.
Lexi has a tendency to identify with others. She forms friendships easily and naturally and enjoys participating in other people’s lives. Sociable, she enjoys being seen and appreciates popularity and recognition. Solitude bores her. Her life and personal relations are in sync with her friendships and outer events. Most often, she shares the opinion of others.
Thought, intuition, and inner perceptions predominate in Lexi Rivera’s psyche. Open and curious, optimistic and enthusiastic, Lexi is eager to participate in everything happening around her.
Her affections are lively and spontaneous, but may be more intellectual than sensual. In a partner, she would seek a source of mutual spiritual or artistic inspiration.
Light-hearted and perhaps even fickle, she never allows herself to be overcome by outer realities or emotions. In its most exaggerated form, her buoyancy borders on indifference.
Lexi Rivera works harder than others to understand other people’s feelings. But this seeming lack of empathy and compassion for others simply mirrors their own difficulty in understanding their own feelings and emotional needs. They are not insensitive, but they are baffled by their own emotions. They see the emotional world as a foreign terrain, perhaps fraught with hidden dangers. Becoming familiar with it would present more drawbacks than advantages. As a result, they may appear to be hard or aloof.
Lexi Rivera might struggle to establish a rewarding relationship, as they seek special individuals to bond with. If they were able to accept and understand their own emotions, they would have an easier time grappling with other people’s feelings.
Lexi Rivera has a strong desire for emotional independence, and might have trouble seeing other people’s emotional needs. They might even be the first to deny that such needs are real.
As a result, their dependency on others is unconscious. Because it is seen as such a threat, it is repressed. Actually, although they offer conscious resistance to anyone who tries to lure them out of their emotional bubble, they are always making timid, half-conscious forays into the world of feelings, because their loneliness and fear are so unbearable.
