Though Mary Carey seems rather cautious and conservative (as discussed in the previous chapter), she has a much more playful, humorous side as well. Moreover, the combination of her attention to detail and cautious, circumspect approach to life, coupled with her youthful curiosity and quick mind makes Mary mentally sharp, articulate and clever.
Mary Carey 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. Carey grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Mary Carey craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Mary Carey 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 Mary 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 Carey.
Mary Carey 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 Mary had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Mary Carey 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.
Mary Carey 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 Mary Carey 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. Mary 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 career, reputation and public image are very important to Carey. Mary Carey has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Mary Carey may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Mary Carey is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Mary does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Carey, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
While Mary Carey deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, she is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in her affections. Carey can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Mary Carey has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Mary Carey tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Mary Carey that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Carey can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
At times Mary Carey may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When her life becomes too predictable, Mary may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Mary Carey that needs to be expressed now and then.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Mary Carey also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Mary Carey is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to her own detriment. Her ideals and spiritual values motivate Mary Carey, and she cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what she does. Otherwise Mary Carey becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Mary.
