Her gift for gab (discussed below), combined with her agreeable and accommodating nature (described in the previous chapter), make Diana Mitford a real "people person", with an almost constant need for dialogue and personal interchange. Lady Mosley could succeed as a public relations consultant, an interviewer or a host.
Diana Mitford is, in many ways, an eternal child. Her mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and her attention span is often quite brief. Mitford grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Diana Mitford craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Diana Mitford to decide just where her talents and true vocation lie, for she has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting herself by concentrating on just one. She is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. Her curiosity and restlessness propel Lady Mosley toward many different experiences in life, and she is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something she does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Mitford.
Diana Mitford lives in her head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and she needs mental stimulation every bit as much as she needs food and drink. In fact, if Lady Mosley had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Diana Mitford has a creative mind and she often lives by her wits.
She is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. She enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting her ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas she has talent for.
Diana Mitford also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though she craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Diana Mitford to achieve it, for she is frequently unwilling to commit herself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit her personal freedom and mobility.
Her happiness lies in using her creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Lady Mosley has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. Her faults are her lack of constancy and persistence, and her tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Mitford.
Diana Mitford has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Diana Mitford feels that she has the support of her family or others in her environment for her creative efforts and personal goals, which enables her to act with confidence. She is able to satisfy both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. She is in harmony with herself and is therefore an effective individual.
At times Diana Mitford may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of her. When her life is becoming too predictable, Lady Mosley may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Diana Mitford which needs to be expressed now and then.
Inwardly she is zealous and fanatical, though she may hide her personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of her feelings. She is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Lady Mosley is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Diana Mitford tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and she often seeks to emulate them. Lady Mosley has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
She is very receptive and sensitive but has a tendency to over-idealize, making her approach to love relationships, romance or marriage somewhat unrealistic. Diana Mitford also tends to be a bit absent-minded and naive, leaving herself open for being taken, swindled or lied to.
