Though Alanis Morissette cares very much about her dignity and the way she is perceived by others (as described on the previous page), she has a very mischievous, playful side that pokes fun of anyone who takes herself too seriously (including herself!). Also, though her great loyalty was highlighted in the previous chapter, fortunately she is also flexible and playful, so she does not allow her commitments to become too burdensome.
Alanis Morissette is, in many ways, an eternal child. Her mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and her attention span is often quite brief. Morissette grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Alanis Morissette craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Alanis Morissette to decide just where her talents and true vocation lie, for she has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting herself by concentrating on just one. She is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. Her curiosity and restlessness propel Alanis toward many different experiences in life, and she is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something she does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Morissette.
Alanis Morissette lives in her head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and she needs mental stimulation every bit as much as she needs food and drink. In fact, if Alanis had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Alanis Morissette has a creative mind and she often lives by her wits.
She is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. She enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting her ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas she has talent for.
Alanis Morissette also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though she craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Alanis Morissette to achieve it, for she is frequently unwilling to commit herself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit her personal freedom and mobility.
Her happiness lies in using her creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Alanis has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. Her faults are her lack of constancy and persistence, and her tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Alanis Morissette really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to her.
Alanis Morissette is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to her own detriment. Her ideals and spiritual values motivate Alanis Morissette, and she cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what she does. Otherwise Alanis Morissette becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Alanis.
