Although Lorraine McIntosh approaches life with curiosity and a willingness to learn and try new things (as stated in the previous chapter), at heart she is much more stable and reliable than she appears. McIntosh is, in fact, quite solid though she can leave the impression of being rather changeable. She is also not quite as flexible and adaptable as one might assume initially. McIntosh can act silly or experiment with a lot of different things, but does not lose perspective or balance.
She is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of her greatest assets. Once McIntosh's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Lorraine McIntosh has a very practical nature; she wants to see concrete, tangible results for her efforts, and she is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of her "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for she has a great love of the physical world and she wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Lorraine McIntosh will work long and persistently, she also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and she wants to enjoy what she has worked for. In fact, McIntosh can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Lorraine McIntosh also loves the beauty of the natural world and she probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, her needs are simple and she is easy to please. Lorraine McIntosh has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless she is forced to do so. She is not very demanding emotionally, though she does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of her faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon McIntosh for support. Though she hates upheaval and sudden changes, Lorraine McIntosh usually maintains her poise and equanimity. Lorraine McIntosh also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. She makes an excellent parent, especially if she follows her instincts more often than "the experts".
Lorraine has three major faults: one is her bullheaded obstinacy. The second is her unwillingness to deviate from her safe, predictable routine. And the third is McIntosh's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Lorraine McIntosh lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open her mind to new horizons.
Lorraine McIntosh tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where her efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged or unknown to the public. McIntosh may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert herself or get up in front of an audience.
Her mind is very active and her judgment usually is sound. Although Lorraine McIntosh's thinking is influenced by her feelings, she is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. She is in control of her feelings and is able to express them rationally.
She is strong-willed, forceful and independent. McIntosh knows what she wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. Lorraine McIntosh tends to judge herself and others quite severely, but she is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
She prefers more serious kinds of conversation with her friends and neighbors rather than small talk. Because her communication is clear and concise, Lorraine McIntosh can impress others by taking control of negotiations or business dealings.
She is a bit impulsive and excitable and wants things done quickly. Lorraine McIntosh tends to be very impatient with anyone who is slower or less energetic than she is. McIntosh will fight for what she wants but should guard against mishaps or accidents.
