Her gift for gab (discussed below), combined with her agreeable and accommodating nature (described in the previous chapter), make Alla Nazimova a real "people person", with an almost constant need for dialogue and personal interchange. Alla could succeed as a public relations consultant, an interviewer or a host.
Alla Nazimova 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. Nazimova grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Alla Nazimova craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Alla Nazimova 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 Alla 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 Nazimova.
Alla Nazimova 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 Alla had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Alla Nazimova 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.
Alla Nazimova 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 Alla Nazimova 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. Alla 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.
Alla Nazimova craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable, or taboo. She may hide her interests or inclinations, except from those who know Alla very intimately. Alla Nazimova is rarely content with herself and her life, and she has an inner urge to be continually going farther or deeper than her ever have before. Alla has also a strong interest in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Her conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by her unconscious beliefs and desires. If Alla Nazimova overrides her instincts and emotions because they seem to lead her in a direction diametrically opposed to the one she consciously desires, her emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Alla Nazimova attends to her emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of her intuition, dreams and gut feelings, she will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
Alla has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Alla Nazimova tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, she never gives up on her hopes for the future. Nazimova tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Nazimova's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Alla Nazimova tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Alla Nazimova has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Nazimova also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about herself which will win her the confidence of others, especially her superiors.
Her physical energy is strong and Alla Nazimova is able to make an extra effort and work quite hard at any task she wants to do. Nazimova can act quickly and she gets a great deal accomplished in a hurry. But Alla Nazimova also has a tendency to be reckless and accident-prone.
