Her optimism and enthusiasm (mentioned in the previous chapter), is balanced by an innate objectivity, detachment, and pragmatic realism that usually keeps her idealistic ventures on a sound course. Though she appears confident and positive, Jordan Ladd is often quite skeptical and much more cautious than she lets on. And while it is true that Ladd likes to play, she is also serious about her work and commitments.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Ladd. Jordan Ladd will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Jordan Ladd has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Jordan Ladd seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Jordan has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Jordan Ladd has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them.
