Though Joan Leslie seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is also quite idealistic, as described below. She may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Joan Leslie has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Joan Leslie cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Leslie can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Joan has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Joan Leslie probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Joan Leslie seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Joan makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Joan Leslie thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Joan Leslie stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Joan Leslie was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Joan has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Leslie. Joan Leslie has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Joan Leslie may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Leslie might be called the eternal optimist and has a very peace-loving nature. She seems to be happy and content, generous and popular in social circles. Joan Leslie also has a good sense for business and likes to carry out enterprises on a large scale.
