Joan does not speak up readily, even when she has a lot to say! Also, her mind tends to drift and Fontaine finds it difficult to study very factual material that does not have much color or imaginative appeal. Her intuition and first impressions are likely to be quite accurate, however, and Joan Fontaine tends to depend upon this faculty in making decisions.
Independent and freethinking, Joan Fontaine dislikes being told what to do and how to do it, and she especially does not like being told how to think, for Joan insists on discovering her own truth. Joan Fontaine does well in a rather unstructured environment that allows her to make her own decisions and to respond to the needs of the moment, rather than following a routine, standardized way of doing things.
