Yvie Jones has written a book about consciousness and the ideal of self.
Yvie Jones is searching for stability; she wants to find a firm, unchanging structure for her life. But her efforts to achieve this ideal are often vain, because unconsciously, she is also inhabited by the opposite desire. Every time she reaches what she believes to be a good balance, she realizes she wants something entirely different. She would do well to become aware that the concepts of stability and balance are difficult to apply to life. By definition, life is movement, change, and perpetual instability.
Yvie Jones has a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding her identity. Perhaps her father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during her childhood, which deprived her of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because she might have lacked a particular sense of security which could be provided by a paternal presence, as well as the examples of behavior to follow in confronting the difficulties inherent in every life, she was forced to protect herself against negative influences and find her own system in order to grow and feel secure.
Although this system was quite useful to her as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with her evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber her mind or inhibit her developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for her to assert herself, and she tends to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because her authoritarian urges are mainly directed at herself rather than others, she sometimes feels guilty about her behavior. She judges herself severely, and sometimes punishes herself by setting difficult tasks for herself. Gradually, she should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
Yvie Jones 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 sometimes 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, might also annoy her. She could find it dissatisfying and irritating at the same time.
Yvie Jones has an extremely sensitive and receptive nature and tends to live in osmosis with her surroundings. Her individuality almost seems to be diluted in a flood of sensations and impressions which are continually washing over her, and she often finds it difficult to communicate her feelings to other people. This tide of emotion is a source of inspiration and intuition, but due to her lack of inner structure and organization, it is difficult for her to grasp the essence of her dreams and share them with other people. She is not at all combative, and this hinders her efforts to fit into society and assert herself productively. Her tendency to prefer fantasy to reality and her refusal to abandon her unattainable dreams is a psychological trap she has fallen into without realizing it.
You must understand that by escaping from your obligations and commitments, you only increase the feelings of guilt and incompetence which made reality so distasteful in the first place. Once you free yourself from this pernicious process, you have a great deal of potential for fulfilling yourself in the outer world, either by devoting yourself to the community or by cultivating your considerable artistic talents.
Yvie Jones has a good balance between her need for movement and her tendency to be sedentary. She is just as likely to adapt to situations which require outbursts of initiative as to those which demand patience and perseverance.
Yvie Jones is pragmatic and realistic. She evaluates people and things according to practical, common-sense criteria instead of abstract concepts. A sensualist and lover of luxury, she has a penchant for material comfort and takes great joy in physical pleasures. In relation to others, socially and privately, she likes to build stable relationships and is not especially fond of change. Her warmth gives her a great deal of ease when meeting people, as clients (for business purposes), but her close relations also benefit from this affection and her ability to express her feelings naturally and openly.
Yvie Jones maintains strong ties with her past, and it often seems difficult for her to open her heart to new people. Her love affairs might exist on the surface level, because her lust and sensual desire rarely turn into a need to understand, protect, and care for the other. Moreover, it is difficult for her to meet partners who combine the ideals of the tender parent and the great lover.
Yvie Jones 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.
Yvie Jones is optimistic and happy to be alive. She is cheerful, expansive, and pleasant associate to have. She is extremely generous (sometimes to a fault!) and gives of herself and her belongings unstintingly. This positive psychological outlook is the result of a happy childhood and especially an extremely beneficial maternal influence in infancy. She is quite likely to be a professional success; her vision of the world is perfectly adapted to prevailing opinion, and her urges and desires for personal expansion usually elicit a positive reaction from society. By old age, her good reputation and prominence may have earned her fame.
Yvie Jones has a sensitive and irrepressible imagination. Although her bubbling imagination provides an abundant source of inspiration for creative or spiritual evolution, it tends to be less helpful and positive in matters that concern her self-assertion as responsible and self-sufficient. In a relationship, she is extremely romantic and does not always see others the way they really are.
Yvie Jones has a sensitivity and emotions that are sometimes in conflict with her instincts. This inner discord makes her a fairly complicated relationship partner, and her behavior sometimes strikes others as mysterious or baffling. She is liable to switch from one attitude to the opposite. Sexuality is an important part of her life, and her relationships are most often motivated by her desires. Nevertheless, due to the strength of her instincts, passion may overwhelm her and drag her into situations she cannot always control, which intermingle erotic ecstasy and anguish, guilt, and aggressiveness.
Jones loves and sensually touches herself all over her body.
Yvie Jones tries to express her affections in the most graceful and harmonious way possible. Indeed, she has an innate sense of harmony and strives for a love relationship characterized by balance and perfection. She tends to idealize both her partner and the institution of marriage. Any disillusionment she encounters in the pursuit of her ideal may be experienced as a frustration. She does not always ply her powers of seduction skillfully.
Yvie Jones 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.
Yvie Jones has a fairly equivocal mixture of charm and passion, strength and frailty. She wields her wiles of sensual fascination and kindness with the purpose of controlling the other in addition to being loved. She is subject to intense and sometimes tragic passions, in which ecstasy and pain, jealousy and tenderness mingle inextricably. However, it is possible that as time goes on, she may succeed in overcoming her instincts, and be able to devote herself to the mate she has chosen in a positive and creative way.
Yvie Jones has a goal of seduction, though she might disguise it as domination. Doubtless she has experienced tumultuous love affairs, and more are in store for her, because she yields entirely once her feelings are aroused. In her eyes, a relationship should be a stable balance of emotional fulfillment and sensual satisfaction to be truly rewarding.
Yvie Jones has a cautious and reserved nature. Sometimes she is 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.
Yvie Jones has an ardent and amorous character, and her relationships are enlivened by intensity and passion. A charmer perpetually engaged in a quest for the ideal love, she is often more in love with the idea of love than with a partner. As a result, her love life may be subject to some instability. She is generally attracted to original people who defy norms, standards, and classifications, and expect them to amaze and fascinate her. Her greatest contradictions surface when an intimate relationship is established. Although she merges her ego entirely into the couple, she is likely to demand a total autonomy and liberty which are inimical to intimacy. If her partner charms and captivates her long enough, there is some possibility that they will form a more solid bond with her; otherwise, she is likely to yield to her need for novelty and fall under the spell of an entirely different person who exerts a new kind of charm for her.
Midlife may be a turning point for her from this point of view. Her contradictory attitude may in some ways hide a compulsion to reject and deny the bonds of dependency inherent to a love relationship. Her behavior enables her to remain aloof, to commit herself only halfway without consciously admitting it to herself, and to avoid feeling guilty if and when she loses interest. An insatiable appetite for novelty and exaltation sometimes keeps her from forming stable relationships. Indeed, she is tormented by the struggle between her undeniable need for affection and an equally imperious desire for personal progress and emancipation. As a result of this inner turmoil, her romantic aspirations are usually sabotaged sooner or later by her conviction that her partner has become an obstacle to her individual progress. Because she thinks of love as a restraint, she may even eventually consciously refuse any emotional approach to love interests. As an ascetic, she will try to deflect the love function from its natural target and use the energy and bliss it generates for other purposes, the process psychologists call sublimation. However, she is also likely to meet “the one” who inspires her to initiate a change in her behavior.
Yvie Jones has a strong mental and intellect. She is able to think on her feet and come up with strategies when needed.
Yvie Jones has a more theoretical than logical and more intuitive than rational thought pattern. She is attracted to wide open spaces and distant horizons; as a scholar, she feels an affinity for higher studies such as philosophy or law. However, foreign languages or contacts abroad might also interest her.
Yvie Jones does not express her thoughts and ideas smoothly or easily. She tends to be subjective, seeking to know herself better through a process of introversion.
Yvie Jones has a good intellectual faculties and wit. Sometimes they are slowed down because they are turned inward. Because she tends to be oriented toward herself, she rarely try to communicate with others for the simple pleasure of doing so. Indeed, she sometimes feels misunderstood. Moreover, it seems difficult for her to express the complexity of her inner perceptions.
