  • A tendency to believe “it” is her responsibility
  • A sarcastic (but silent) sense of humor
  • Always putting needs of others ahead of her own
  • Approachable/non-threatening
  • Trustworthy and loyal to a fault
  • Collector of ‘needy’ men
  • Gentle with the tears of others
  • Considers her own tears a sign of weakness
  • Unassertive…..unless protecting another
  • Gets embarrassed when praised
