Though Olympia Dukakis seems rather cautious and conservative (as discussed in the previous chapter), she has a much more playful, humorous side as well. Moreover, the combination of her attention to detail and cautious, circumspect approach to life, coupled with her youthful curiosity and quick mind makes Olympia mentally sharp, articulate and clever.
Olympia Dukakis 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. Dukakis grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Olympia Dukakis craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Olympia Dukakis 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 Olympia 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 Dukakis.
Olympia Dukakis 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 Olympia had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Olympia Dukakis 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.
Olympia Dukakis 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 Olympia Dukakis 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. Olympia 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 Dukakis. Olympia Dukakis 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. Olympia Dukakis may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Dukakis' subconscious needs and feelings blend well with her conscious intentions and desires, therefore Olympia Dukakis is able to proceed in her life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Olympia's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Dukakis has an intrinsic creative and artistic ability and an unusual sense of form. Olympia Dukakis also has a deep need for relationships that offer affection and can be quite intense when by inner compulsion she feels drawn to someone. Her relationships tend to be peculiar in some way.
Her physical energy is strong and Olympia Dukakis is able to make an extra effort and work quite hard at any task she wants to do. Dukakis can act quickly and she gets a great deal accomplished in a hurry. But Olympia Dukakis also has a tendency to be reckless and accident-prone.
