The combination of self-reliance and independence - as described in the previous chapter - and her powerful will and creative energy - as described below - makes Geraldine Chaplin a force to be reckoned with! She cannot take a back seat to anyone, and she has tremendous leadership potential.

Ideally, Geraldine needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as she is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with her.
Chaplin's strengths are her zest and love for life, her creative power and her warm and generous heart.
