Rebecca Davies considers consciousness to be one of the most important idealisations of the self. She argues that, despite its many failings, the ideal of self is a necessary part of our identity and allows us to explore and grow in our relationships with others.
Rebecca Davies has a confidence in herself sometimes falters, and she might try to compensate for this weakness by insisting on her authority over others. With the people she is emotionally committed to, the same nagging feelings of insecurity prevent her from expressing her generosity and love fully; her extreme independence sometimes hides an inability to abandon herself and a lack of assurance.
Rebecca Davies has a personality and behavior liable to be disrupted by a contradiction between the masculine and feminine archetypes ruling her psyche. Because her sensitivity is in conflict with her determination, her attitude and performance may be moody, fluctuating, and uncertain. Usually, she has the feeling she has to make superhuman efforts to succeed in assuaging her yearnings and fulfilling her ambitions. Her unconscious, sensitive side often disapproves of her conscious endeavors and stealthily works to defeat them, causing crucial omissions, mistakes, and gaps which effectively sabotage her plans. In her relationships, the images she builds up and projects on the other are contradictory. As a result, any bond, even if it is pleasant and positive, also grates on her nerves. She finds it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
Rebecca Davies is an ardent free thinker and individualist who is convinced that her most precious basic values are freedom and independence. She has thrown off what she perceives as the burden of the convention and customs of her social class and adopted an innovative lifestyle. Her passionate convictions, bordering on proselytism, sometimes trouble her relationships, as she may be an uncompromising partner. She would do well to learn to recognize her own limitations and accept the responsibilities she has to other people, or she is liable to find herself continually embroiled in conflicting relationships.
Rebecca Davies has an ability to adapt and sensitivity to her surroundings. She is just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance.
Rebecca Davies is winning and attractive. She has an appetite for intense emotional experiences, especially in terms of her relationships. Enjoying the power of her personal appeal, she easily controls her emotions and only rarely reveals the true depth of her feelings. Because her instincts take precedence over her sensitivity, she is capable of becoming jealous, possessive, and even rather harsh, without meaning to. More of a flirt than a voluptuary, she is attentive to desire. As a result, her love life will sometimes be casual and complicated.
Rebecca has a sensitive personality. She may jump to conclusions, which could disrupt relationships, as well as career plans. She is subject to cyclical energy flows and go from periods of feverish activity to periods of withdrawal and introspection. The aggressive element in her behavior may be explained by emotional problems she may have experienced in infancy: her mother, or a mother figure, may have had an energetic and volatile personality.
Rebecca Davies has an emotional nature and tends to react suddenly and excessively as soon as her sensitivity is touched. Although she feels that her independence, freedom, and self-sufficiency are fundamental values, she is sometimes frustrated by her need to rely on her family or friends. Moreover, she does not always grant the freedom of other people the same respect as her own. Likewise, she is sometimes angered by expressions of maternal tenderness, as if she feared that it would doom her to eternal dependency. Her ambivalent behavior, full of jagged edges, may be traced back to the relationship she had with her mother or a mother figure. Although she was dependent on her, her mother may have rejected her. Now this attitude is extended to any situation in which her sensitivity comes into play and emotional bonds are liable to form. To ward off her feelings of dependency, she tends to become destructive. Based on denial, her reactions are sometimes fierce, impulsive, and excessive, erratic, or contradictory.
Rebecca Davies loves and sensually appreciates all the different forms of love and sexuality.
Rebecca Davies enjoys captivating people with the elegance and ease of her expression. She is a witty and engaging flirt, an avid player of the game of love. As a result, the history of her affections is liable to be episodic, a long series of chapters about conquests or fleeting love affairs. She may carry on some love relationships by writing letters.
Rebecca Davies has an emotional function which is expressed in a direct and fairly impulsive way. She enjoys reaching out to other people and making discoveries. An eternal teenager with her gaze riveted on the future, she is imbued with an eminently subjective and personal idealism.
Rebecca Davies seems more apt to become accomplished than to live out emotional happiness. She is very ambitious and liable to sacrifice a pleasant lover to a socially useful and prominent person. In this case, her partner may turn out to be more preoccupied with their own glory than with her. At that point, she may work out her frustrations and emotional misadventures by surpassing their success with her own.
Rebecca Davies has a intellectual temperament which sometimes leads her to be more interested in verbal or social exchanges than in actual lovemaking. She enjoys flirting and tends to have fun with love rather than becoming passionately engaged. Because she avoids intense passion, she tends to flutter from one good-looking face to the next, enjoying her ability to charm. She believes that played this way, the game of love can have few serious consequences.
Rebecca Davies may be characterized by strong sensual and affectionate urges which drive her to seek pleasure. Her need for romantic fulfillment may compel her to marry, because she also seeks the legal and social legitimacy the institution of marriage confers on an emotional bond. Indeed, the household is liable to be prosperous and even opulent, as if this offered further evidence that she had indeed achieved success. However, privately, she might be less committed to certain obligations and duties.
Rebecca Davies is cautious and reserved, sometimes unwilling to open herself to others if she is not sure of being accepted. She will always hang back somewhat from her emotional urges, parceling out her expressions of affection, because she has learned – sometimes at her expense – that even the most harmonious relationships require some compromise. For her, “good fences make good neighbors,” and well-marked boundaries can prevent future suffering. Thus, even when she is in love, she remains fairly circumspect. When she finds herself attracted to a partner, she privately engages in a careful analysis of their personality and life story, endeavoring to know them profoundly, to see whether she is likely to be able to share her life and future with them. As a result of her sensitivity, she has a profound affinity for all of the arts. Music, literature, painting, and graphic arts are likely to enrich her existence and make it pleasant. She could progress in any career in which balance, order, and practicality predominate.
Rebecca Davies has a romantic imagination, soaring with idealism, dreams, and poetry. She is emotive and hypersensitive, making her especially vulnerable emotionally, since she is sometimes overwhelmed by her feelings and affects. Although she seeks an ideal soulmate, a partner with whom she could maintain blissful, smooth relations, she is sometimes met with disillusionment. Because her rather excessive sensitivity and her need to merge with the other are deep and powerful enough, they can submerge her judgment and discernment, so she sometimes forms extremely intense bonds too quickly with individuals who are not appropriate partners in many ways. When she meets someone, she falls under the enchantment of her dream of ideal love and cannot keep herself from delighting in a reverie of future romance, placing the other on a pedestal. Early on in the relationship, she yields to another of her characteristic urges and loses herself in the individual who is so dear to her, melding with them, only to awaken one morning and find herself as if in the arms of a stranger, greatly astounded and disappointed. Actually, her psyche is constructed in such a way as to make her sensitivity a function of the environment, in many cases; it follows the flow of momentary emotions and impressions. Before she takes on any major commitments, she should make a conscious effort to evaluate the relationship realistically, and see whether the person really reciprocates her intense love, for she may merely be in love with the mirage of an ideal partner. Her tendency to believe in her illusions may mark her as an easy prey for people with bad intentions. It would be a good idea for her to find a different object for her affections, or a form of sublimation, because she tends to be so disappointed by her great emotional investments. The delicacy and subtlety of her imagination procure artistic refinement for her, and she loves the arts, music, and literature, which could all be good sources of emotional involvement and fulfillment. Because her sensitivity also makes it easy for her to empathize with the psychological or social difficulties her peers are struggling with, she might also find it rewarding to commit herself to social work.

Discipline and a conscious effort at organization will be of great help if she wants to deepen her learning and judgment. Once her intellectual faculties are disciplined, she is likely to succeed in any of the following fields: teaching, historical scholarship, advertising, writing (journalistic or literary), travel, etc: – in fact, communication in any form.
