Behind Pavan's rather rambunctious, sporty, exuberant demeanor (described in the previous chapter), she is also quick-witted, intelligent and in need of mental stimulation as much as physical freedom.
Marisa Pavan 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. Pavan grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Marisa Pavan craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Marisa Pavan 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 Marisa 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 Pavan.
Marisa Pavan 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 Marisa had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Marisa Pavan 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.
Marisa Pavan 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 Marisa Pavan 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. Marisa 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.
Marisa Pavan invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Marisa feels that she needs others in order to be all that she can be, and she is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to promote mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Marisa Pavan can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.
Her physique tends to be sensitive and her vitality may be a bit low. Marisa Pavan is very impressionable and somewhat unrealistic. Sometimes her idealism could be confused or impractical, and Pavan can be rebellious or else apathetic.
