This page describes the disguise Patti wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Adelina Patti likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Patti must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Adelina does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.

Patti admires others who are strong individuals like herself.
