Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. Merle Oberon needs to be especially wary of the tendency to be oblivious to the personal feelings of others; otherwise she sometimes hurts others' feelings without realizing it.
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, Merle Oberon 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, Oberon can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Merle 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. Merle Oberon 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. Merle Oberon seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because she is capable of putting aside her personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Merle makes up her mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade her, and she can be rather dogmatic.
Merle Oberon 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. Merle Oberon stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Merle Oberon was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Merle 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.
Merle Oberon has a clear sense of her own self and she therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who she is and what she wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Oberon can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Merle Oberon feels a need to be in control of her own life and she can be too self-involved, too immersed in her own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Merle Oberon has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Oberon also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about herself which will win her the confidence of others, especially her superiors.
Merle Oberon deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Merle has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, she pursues her desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and she may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Merle likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Oberon always seems to find the right words to verbalize her feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Merle Oberon also has a keen sense of beauty and she probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
