Behind Patti's proud and rather self-centered demeanor (described in the previous chapter), she is a thoughtful person concerned with social issues. She is very sensitive to the ways in which economic, social and cultural issues affect individuals. In her own life, Adelina Patti struggles to find ways to advance herself while also contributing something valuable to her community. Patti must not be content with simply blaming society for her own problems or those of others, but rather become active in finding creative ways to solve these problems.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Adelina Patti cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Patti can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Adelina has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Adelina Patti probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Adelina Patti seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Adelina makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Adelina Patti thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet.

She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Adelina Patti often feels that she needs to fight to get what she wants, and she tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. She is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
Along with her energy and drive, Adelina Patti has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Patti, as well as a doer and a fighter. Adelina wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for her.
