Her optimism and enthusiasm (mentioned in the previous chapter), is balanced by an innate objectivity, detachment, and pragmatic realism that usually keeps her idealistic ventures on a sound course. Though she appears confident and positive, Carole Landis is often quite skeptical and much more cautious than she lets on. And while it is true that Landis likes to play, she is also serious about her work and commitments.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Landis. Carole Landis will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Carole Landis has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Carole Landis seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Carole has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Carole Landis has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Carole Landis plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Landis.
Landis' strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Carole Landis has a clear sense of her own self and she therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who she is and what she wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Landis can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Carole Landis feels a need to be in control of her own life and she can be too self-involved, too immersed in her own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
The above description of Carole Landis is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Carole Landis tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in her makeup and she generally knows what she wants and what will make her happy.
Carole Landis aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Landis' great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Carole.
Carole Landis tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, she may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Landis may have become passive, identified herself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve her desires in underhanded ways.
Carole's hypersensitivity to her environment is likely to be a challenge for her in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Carole Landis more than most people.
Carole Landis has a basic need to fit in with others and is always willing to cooperate. She enjoys working with others as a team and is a well liked comrade.
