Marilyn Monroe 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.

Her happiness lies in using her creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together.

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.
