Persephone's Existing Situation
Needs peace and quiet. Desires a close and faithful partner from whom to demand special consideration and unquestioning affection. If these requirements are not met, is liable to turn away and withdraw altogether.
Persephone's Stress Sources
Feels unappreciated and finds the existing situation disagreeable. Wants personal recognition and the esteem of others to compensate for the lack of like-minded people with whom to ally herself and make herself more secure. Her sensual self-restraint makes it difficult for her to give herself, but the resulting isolation leads to the urge to surrender and merge with another. This disturbs her as she regards such instincts as weaknesses to be overcome; only by not succumbing to them, she feels, can she withstand the difficulties of the situation. Wants to be valued as a desirable associate and admired for her personal qualities.
Persephone's Restrained Characteristics
Feels listless, hemmed in, and anxious; considers that circumstances are forcing her to restrain her desires. Wants to avoid open conflict with others and to have peace and quiet.
Exacting in her emotional demands and very particular in her choice of partner. The desire for emotional independence prevents any depth of involvement.
Persephone's Desired Objective
Wants to make a favorable impression and be rewarded as a special personality. Is therefore constantly on the watch to see whether she is succeeding in this and how others are reacting to her. This makes her feel that she is in control. Uses tactics cleverly in order to obtain influence and special recognition. Susceptible to the esthetic or original.
Persephone's Actual Problem
Greatly impressed by the unique, by originality, and by individuals of outstanding characteristics. Tries to emulate the characteristics she admires and to display originality in her own personality.
Persephone's Actual Problem #2
Depleted vitality has created an intolerance for any further stimulation, or demands on her resources. This feeling of powerlessness subjects her to agitation and acute distress. She attempts to escape into a substitute world in which things are more nearly as she desires them to be.
I feel a bit weirded out by some of the above, especially in the "Persephone's Desired Objective" section. Some of the stuff there makes me sound like I'm either an attention-whore or manipulative or both. I don't think I'm either of those (although there may be some that might disagree with my self-assessment) -- yes, I like to receive favorable attention from my fellows, but wanting "strokes" is normal, in my opinion. People enjoy being admired and thought well of and most people try to put their best foot forward. Then again, I might be more of a Slytherin than I realize . . .
I also think I'm not as escapist as this quiz makes out (current "Potter-ing about" notwithstanding) -- I could be wrong about that, but sometimes it's nice to get away from the stresses of daily life. Does that make me escapist? I don't think so . . .
