Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. Her enthusiasm and outgoing, forward-looking nature is a gift, but Antonietta Lilly should also be wary of the tendency to overlook details and be oblivious to others' personal feelings.
She is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. She is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. She needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to her.
To Antonietta Lilly, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for her to decide where to focus her attention and efforts. Antonietta Lilly probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before she settled on a particular career. Or she may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, she is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not her strong points. Lilly can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, she has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Antonietta Lilly has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Lilly always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme.

However, she gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement her theories.
Lilly expresses herself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because she does not take herself too seriously, she may not realize how deeply her candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though she may not realize it, Antonietta's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Antonietta Lilly enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and she does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. She is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares her ideals, her sense of fun and her zest for life would be the right companion for Lilly.

Lilly occasionally gamble, splurge, or overextend herself in ways that may be quite at odds with her usual way of doing things. Exaggerating her accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up her own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Antonietta Lilly also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable her to recover from the negative consequences of her excesses, and to learn from them.
