At first she may simply come across as clever and witty (as described on the previous page), but it soon becomes clear that there are ideals and causes that she takes very much to heart. As described below, Mary Leakey is an innovator and an idealist at heart. She is an active person who needs to participate in community activities and is likely to be successful at whatever academic or business profession she chooses.
She is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and she insists upon living her own life as she sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Mary Leakey cannot be owned or possessed, and while she is willing to share herself with another, she does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Leakey can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Mary has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and she tries to abide by them; however, her ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Mary Leakey probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
She is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and she often let her head rule rather than her heart. Mary Leakey seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Mary makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Mary Leakey thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond her own personal sphere - her town, nation, or even planet. She is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. She enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and she often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, she harbors great hopes for the future. Mary Leakey stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Mary Leakey was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Mary has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
Her strong points include her concern for human welfare and social betterment, her sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and her vision. Her faults are her stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Leakey. Mary Leakey has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. 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. Mary Leakey may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
The above description of Mary Leakey is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Mary Leakey tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in her makeup and she generally knows what she wants and what will make her happy.
Mary Leakey tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Mary Leakey has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Her mind is very active and her judgment usually is sound. Although Mary Leakey's thinking is influenced by her feelings, she is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. She is in control of her feelings and is able to express them rationally.
Her emotions are in tune with her intentions and Mary Leakey goes about her business with complete oneness. Mary Leakey has a positive attitude towards life and a high spirit of enterprise. There could be a strong tie between Mary and her mother or her wife.
