Because Elizabeth Blackburn seems to be such a gentle, tolerant, accepting person (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she can startle people with some of her very pointed, bluntly honest statements. Even though she is sensitive and empathetic, she can also be quite tactless at times. Her good will and good intentions, however, usually prevail. With Blackburn's free-flowing imagination (described earlier) and her great restlessness (discussed below), she is apt to be a wanderer, and perhaps somewhat of an escapist.
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 Elizabeth Blackburn, 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. Elizabeth Blackburn 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. Blackburn 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. Elizabeth Blackburn has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Blackburn always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Elizabeth Blackburn has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Elizabeth 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.
Blackburn 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, Elizabeth's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Elizabeth Blackburn 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 Blackburn.
Blackburn is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world.
Elizabeth Blackburn is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Blackburn's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with her conscious intentions and desires, therefore Elizabeth Blackburn is able to proceed with her life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Elizabeth's male-female relationships will also reflect this state of internal harmony.
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Elizabeth Blackburn has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Elizabeth Blackburn tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
