Though Monica Keena cares very much about her dignity and the way she is perceived by others (as described on the previous page), she has a very mischievous, playful side that pokes fun of anyone who takes herself too seriously (including herself!). Also, though her great loyalty was highlighted in the previous chapter, fortunately she is also flexible and playful, so she does not allow her commitments to become too burdensome.
Monica Keena 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. Keena grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Monica Keena craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Monica Keena 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 Monica 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 Keena.
Monica Keena 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 Monica had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Monica Keena 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.
Monica Keena 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 Monica Keena 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. Monica 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 Keena. Monica Keena 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. Monica Keena may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
The above description of Monica Keena is so deeply ingrained that she has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Monica Keena 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.
Monica Keena 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. Monica Keena has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Her life is apt to be blessed with more than her share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to her at just the right time. Because Monica Keena is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, she continues to generate successes in her life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Monica should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Keena's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Monica Keena tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Monica Keena has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Monica Keena tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
Her physique tends to be sensitive and her vitality may be a bit low. Monica Keena is very impressionable and somewhat unrealistic. Sometimes her idealism could be confused or impractical, and Keena can be rebellious or else apathetic.
