Although she is quite tolerant, giving and forgiving (as mentioned in the previous chapter), Carole Lombard has a definite sense of fairness, balance and correct proportions, which prevent Carole from being completely happy in an exclusively benevolent role. Carole Lombard really wants equal and reciprocal relationships - not ones that involve being someone else's servant or caregiver. However, Carole Lombard needs to learn how to assert what she wants and needs, for she tends to "go with the flow" or simply wait for her needs to be met. Consequently, she may feel that she is never able to achieve equality in relationships and ends up being taken advantage of. Moreover, Carole should avoid the tendency to be evasive, indirect, and afraid to confront unpleasant issues. The honest and open relationships Lombard seeks cannot be achieved if she is hiding something!

Her spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and she often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
