Her initial wariness and caution (as described on the previous page) is balanced by her innate enthusiasm and optimism. Even though she is fiercely and emotionally intense, Édith Piaf can also adopt a broader perspective of herself and her predicaments and laugh at herself in the process.
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 Édith Piaf, 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. Édith Piaf 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. Piaf 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. Édith Piaf has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Piaf always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Édith Piaf has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Édith 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.
Piaf 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, Édith's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Édith Piaf 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 Piaf.
Ownership gives Édith Piaf a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Édith also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Édith Piaf tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Édith Piaf has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
She is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. She enjoys competition, and her initiative and self-confidence make Édith Piaf a winner.
