He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel Joseph toward many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something he does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Fiennes.
Joseph Fiennes lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink.

His happiness lies in using his creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together.

Joseph Fiennes often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Joseph has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Joseph sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Joseph really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
