Natalia Dyer 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.
Natalia Dyer’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.
While Natalia Dyer is attracted to interpersonal activities, her significant need for inner security may stand in the way of her overtures to others. Since she is highly receptive to other people’s inner natures, she seeks tight bonds with others. She unconsciously needs their psychological support in her quest for herself. Were she to evaluate her psychological development, she would place more value upon human warmth, intimacy, and the need to share than on intellectual understanding or personal freedom of expression.
Natalia Dyer is a realist. She approaches life pragmatically, and even her feelings are based on rational, tangible evidence. She bases her judgements on past experience and is prone to skepticism. A hard worker, she takes pride in her own endeavors and has a personal concept of her productivity. Her possessions help her assert herself as an individual and act as an antidote to any feelings of insecurity. As a result, material accomplishments may preoccupy her more than either love as a passion or intellectual or philosophical considerations. Nevertheless, she becomes attached to anything which offers her certainty.
Natalia Dyer works harder than others to understand other people’s feelings. But this seeming lack of empathy and compassion for others simply mirrors her own difficulty in understanding her own feelings and emotional needs. She is not insensitive, but she is baffled by her own emotions. She sees 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, she may appear to be hard or aloof.
She might struggle to establish a rewarding relationship, as she seeks special individuals to bond with. If she were able to accept and understand her own emotions, she would have an easier time grappling with other people’s feelings.
She has a strong desire for emotional independence, and might have trouble seeing other people’s emotional needs. She might even be the first to deny that such needs are real.
As a result, her dependency on others is unconscious. Because it is seen as such a threat, it is repressed. Actually, although she offers conscious resistance to anyone who tries to lure her out of her emotional bubble, she is always making timid, half-conscious forays into the world of feelings, because her loneliness and fear are so unbearable.
