Antonietta Lilly takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Antonietta Lilly has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Antonietta limits herself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in herself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Antonietta Lilly difficult to get to know intimately, as Lilly tends to distance herself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Antonietta Lilly tends to be her own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of herself and harshly criticizing or persecuting herself when she does not measure up.

Antonietta Lilly needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Antonietta's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value.
