You Know You are Dramatic if…

The Dramatic is a fast-paced, hardworking woman who is not afraid to take risks. She has a daring nature that is seemingly uninhibited by the influences around her but the truth is she often has a very sensitive spirit. 

She is like an exotic flower, of which, of course, there are many kinds. I use the Protea to represent the Artsy Dramatic and the Bird of Paradise for the Sophisticated Dramatic. The Dramatic with a flare for art can carry off a costume-like image and come across as fun- like a Protea with its very unusual kind of beauty. The Dramatic who is more sophisticated also stands out with her unique style, but she may be more often included in social circles. Add an exotic flower to any bouquet and it will make a statement at your party; add a lot of them and it may be too much, unless it is a formal event or held in an exquisite hotel.

These women sometimes come across as “too much” when they are together. Their animated character added to their unique beauty seems to draw the assumption that they want all the attention, but like the flowers they actually do better in indirect sunlight and away from where they can be touched. It may take time for this beauty, like the Ugly Duckling, to find her beauty and bloom, but when she does she has a powerful presence and can be very influential in her world.

IMG_0038Some assume she is high maintenance; they do that with exotic flowers, too. Even florists are sometimes uncomfortable raising the Bird of Paradise or the Protea, maybe because they take patience, but they do not need a lot of care. They do best left alone to flourish in warm, humid environments with fair soil. The Dramatic (of either kind) is like that, too. She has a drive for excellence that can be intimidating to more casual personalities. She also has a drive for popularity; but her independent nature is not patient with those who do not understand her, so she is often only close to a few friends that she really relates to. Her tight circle of friends is observed as a “click” because they are like an exotic hotel bouquet in a casual home. Unfortunately, they are often assumed to be a snob, yet they are the ones feeling snubbed for being “too much.”

Like Hannah, who I blogged about last week.

If you are a woman with a Dramatic Img.ID, I encourage you to keep being you (beYOUtiful) and keep smiling. It’s likely that you do not recognize it, but you may be very influential in your community. Your majestic personality attracts others, but it is hard for them to understand you if you remain private. Since your body language is so strong, if you are quite, they will make their own assumptions. You will always be noticed, but if you want close friends you need to decide to consciously make yourself available emotionally, no matter how much it goes against your nature.  Just remember how much Hannah was blessed for voicing her heart.
