Behind Montez's rather serious demeanor (described in the previous chapter), she has a much more frivolous, inquisitive and open side. The self-discipline and self-control mentioned earlier help to balance some of the restlessness and flightiness described below. María has both a strong "adult" component in her nature (mature, careful, realistic), and a strong "child" component (mischievous, playful, fanciful).
María Montez 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. Montez grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. María Montez craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for María Montez 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 María 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 Montez.
María Montez 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 María had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. María Montez 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.
María Montez 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 María Montez 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. María 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 energies are directed to either perfecting her techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of María Montez's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Montez can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
María Montez feels that she has the support of her family or others in her environment for her creative efforts and personal goals, which enables her to act with confidence. She is able to satisfy both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. She is in harmony with herself and is therefore an effective individual.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to her at just the right time. Because María Montez is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate successes in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. María should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
Her emotions are in tune with her intentions and María Montez goes about her business with complete oneness. María Montez has a positive attitude towards life and a high spirit of enterprise. There could be a strong tie between María and her mother or her wife.
