When reading the previous chapter and this one, Nancy Poydar will notice that there are some significant differences between how she comes across to others and how she is at heart. Her warm, supportive, nurturing side, described in the previous chapter, can conflict with her freedom-loving side, which is described below. In short, she may feel torn between taking care of others and "flying free". Nancy Poydar must maintain a balance so that she has enough time and freedom to explore, travel and play. Striving for this balance is an endless challenge for Poydar. As kind and sympathetic as she is, there are limits to the amount of time and energy she can dedicate to taking care of other people. Those who really know Nancy understand that she is an adventurer at heart, and personal commitments (especially when others depend on her) easily become burdensome.
She is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. She is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. She needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to her.
To Nancy Poydar, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for her to decide where to focus her attention and efforts. Nancy Poydar probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before she settled on a particular career. Or she may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, she is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not her strong points. Poydar can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, she has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Nancy Poydar has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Poydar always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Nancy Poydar has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Nancy has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and she likes to theorize and speculate. However, she gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement her theories.
Poydar expresses herself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because she does not take herself too seriously, she may not realize how deeply her candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though she may not realize it, Nancy's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Nancy Poydar enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and she does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. She is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares her ideals, her sense of fun and her zest for life would be the right companion for Poydar.
Nancy Poydar has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and she loves to perform. Nancy enjoys being the center of attention and she seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way.

Nancy Poydar 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. Nancy Poydar has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.

Her artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Nancy does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Poydar, as are her personal appearance and attractiveness.
While Nancy Poydar deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, she is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in her affections. Poydar can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
She may have had a demanding and perfectionist or absent father. In any case, a lack of support and approval, a great deal of responsibility at an early age and an underlying feeling that she can never quite measure up may hold Poydar back. While she may encounter a great deal of adversity and struggle alone through many of life's trials, this makes Nancy Poydar tough and determined. However, Poydar should beware of becoming cynical, too hard on herself, and too demanding and critical of others.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Nancy Poydar that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Poydar can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Nancy Poydar cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Nancy finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Poydar to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Nancy Poydar has a very creative, inventive streak.
Nancy Poydar deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Nancy 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.
