While Lesley Stahl usually comes across a tactful and diplomatic (as described on the previous page), she can also be surprisingly blunt and direct, especially when people get to know her better. Perhaps Lesley's gift is to say very honest and candid things in a way that will not alienate people. Alternatively, she may vacillate between being gracious and "telling it like it is".
She is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. She is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. She needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to her.
To Lesley Stahl, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for her to decide where to focus her attention and efforts. Lesley Stahl probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before she settled on a particular career. Or she may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, she is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not her strong points. Stahl can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, she has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Lesley Stahl has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Stahl always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Lesley Stahl has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Lesley has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and she likes to theorize and speculate. However, she gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement her theories.
Stahl expresses herself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because she does not take herself too seriously, she may not realize how deeply her candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though she may not realize it, Lesley's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Lesley Stahl enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and she does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. She is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares her ideals, her sense of fun and her zest for life would be the right companion for Stahl.
The urge to learn and communicate is essential to Lesley Stahl, and she expresses herself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Stahl is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Lesley enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for herself what is going on in the world around her.
Lesley Stahl tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Lesley Stahl has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Lesley has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from her father or other significant men in her life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Lesley and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of her greatest handicaps, and at times she may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of her own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in her life. Lesley Stahl needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities may say.
Lesley Stahl seems to have an emotional and physical unrest and she always have to be on the move. Lesley could find it difficult to control herself and she tends to get angry and upset easily. Eccentric and individualistic, she can create a stir wherever she goes.
