When reading the previous chapter and this one, Nicoletta Mantovani 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". Nicoletta Mantovani 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 Mantovani. 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 Nicoletta 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 Nicoletta Mantovani, 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. Nicoletta Mantovani 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. Mantovani 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. Nicoletta Mantovani has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Mantovani always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Nicoletta Mantovani has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Nicoletta 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.
Mantovani 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, Nicoletta's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Nicoletta Mantovani 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 Mantovani.
Nicoletta Mantovani has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and she loves to perform. Nicoletta enjoys being the center of attention and she seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. She is very involved in her own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using her special talents be they artistic, athletic or intellectual. Nicoletta Mantovani has a strong sense of pride.
Nicoletta Mantovani 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. Nicoletta Mantovani has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Her conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by her unconscious beliefs and desires. If Nicoletta Mantovani overrides her instincts and emotions because they seem to lead her in a direction diametrically opposed to the one she consciously desires, her emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Nicoletta Mantovani attends to her emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of her intuition, dreams and gut feelings, she will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
Nicoletta has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from her father or other significant men in her life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Nicoletta and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of her greatest handicaps, and at times she may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of her own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in her life. Nicoletta Mantovani needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities may say.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Nicoletta Mantovani also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Sensitive and imaginative, she is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Nicoletta Mantovani is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Nicoletta has an abundance of dreams, visions and longings, but does not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them materialize. Gentle, idealistic and peace loving, Nicoletta often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Nicoletta has an ethereal quality about her.
She is very receptive and sensitive but has a tendency to over-idealize, making her approach to love relationships, romance or marriage somewhat unrealistic. Nicoletta Mantovani also tends to be a bit absent-minded and naive, leaving herself open for being taken, swindled or lied to.
