Though Laurel Holloman cares very much about her dignity and the way she is perceived by others (as described on the previous page), she has a very mischievous, playful side that pokes fun of anyone who takes herself too seriously (including herself!). Also, though her great loyalty was highlighted in the previous chapter, fortunately she is also flexible and playful, so she does not allow her commitments to become too burdensome.
Laurel Holloman is, in many ways, an eternal child. Her mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and her attention span is often quite brief. Holloman grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Laurel Holloman craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Laurel Holloman to decide just where her talents and true vocation lie, for she has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting herself by concentrating on just one. She is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. Her curiosity and restlessness propel Laurel toward many different experiences in life, and she is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something she does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Holloman.
Laurel Holloman lives in her head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and she needs mental stimulation every bit as much as she needs food and drink. In fact, if Laurel had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Laurel Holloman has a creative mind and she often lives by her wits.
She is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. She enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting her ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas she has talent for.
Laurel Holloman also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though she craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Laurel Holloman to achieve it, for she is frequently unwilling to commit herself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit her personal freedom and mobility.
Her happiness lies in using her creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Laurel has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. Her faults are her lack of constancy and persistence, and her tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Holloman. Laurel Holloman 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. Laurel Holloman may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Laurel Holloman aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Holloman's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Laurel.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Holloman's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Laurel Holloman tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Laurel Holloman has a mature and often somber demeanor. She is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. She progresses rather slowly in life, through her own efforts and persistence. She is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with herself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for her to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Laurel likes to be in control of herself.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Laurel Holloman also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Laurel Holloman is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to her own detriment. Her ideals and spiritual values motivate Laurel Holloman, and she cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what she does. Otherwise Laurel Holloman becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Laurel.
Laurel Holloman deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Laurel has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, she pursues her desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and she may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Laurel likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Her vitality is very strong and she is likely to be a workaholic. If Laurel Holloman is not careful, she may work so hard that she becomes exhausted, leaving herself open to physical breakdown. Laurel Holloman also has a strong drive to win and to dominate others.
She is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel her energies productively. Laurel Holloman may feel that everything is going to be all right, that she cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
