Though Norma Talmadge 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.
Norma Talmadge 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.

It may be hard for Norma Talmadge 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 Norma 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 Talmadge.
Norma Talmadge 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.

Norma Talmadge also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously.

Her happiness lies in using her creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Norma 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.

Norma Talmadge also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling her obligations. Talmadge often does things because she feels it is expected of her.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Norma Talmadge that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Talmadge can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
At times Norma Talmadge may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When her life becomes too predictable, Norma may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Norma Talmadge that needs to be expressed now and then.
