Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. Her enthusiasm and outgoing, forward-looking nature is a gift, but Candice Shoaf 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 Candice Shoaf, 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. Candice Shoaf 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. Shoaf 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. Candice Shoaf has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Shoaf always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Candice Shoaf has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Candice has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and she likes to theorize and speculate. However, she gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement her theories.
Shoaf 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, Candice's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Candice Shoaf 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 Shoaf.
Candice Shoaf tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where her efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting herself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Shoaf.
Realistic and practical, Candice Shoaf sets goals for herself that are modest enough for her to actually achieve. She is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Shoaf possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Candice Shoaf also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling her obligations. Shoaf often does things because she feels it is expected of her.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Candice Shoaf that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Shoaf can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Candice Shoaf cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Candice finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Shoaf to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Candice Shoaf has a very creative, inventive streak.
Her mind is very active and her judgment usually is sound. Although Candice Shoaf's thinking is influenced by her feelings, she is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. She is in control of her feelings and is able to express them rationally.
Shoaf might be called the eternal optimist and has a very peace-loving nature. She seems to be happy and content, generous and popular in social circles. Candice Shoaf also has a good sense for business and likes to carry out enterprises on a large scale.
