Louisa May Alcott
Although Louisa May Alcott appears humble and unassuming (as described on the previous page), inside she is much more of a risk taker and an adventurer. Louisa May Alcott is actually much less conservative and conventional than she seems initially. Behind Alcott's quiet, restrained exterior lies a much looser, free-spirited soul (as described below).
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 Louisa May Alcott, 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. Louisa May Alcott 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. Alcott 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. Louisa May Alcott has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Alcott always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Louisa May Alcott has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Louisa 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.
Alcott 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, Louisa's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Louisa May Alcott 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 Alcott.

Restless and inquisitive, Louisa enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for herself what is going on in the world around her.
Louisa May Alcott deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Louisa 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. Louisa likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
