Although Patty Duke appears humble and unassuming (as described on the previous page), inside she is much more of a risk taker and an adventurer. Patty Duke is actually much less conservative and conventional than she seems initially. Behind Duke's quiet, restrained exterior lies a much looser, free-spirited soul (as described below).
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 Patty Duke, 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. Patty Duke 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. Duke 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. Patty Duke has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Duke always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Patty Duke has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Patty 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.
Duke 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, Patty's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Patty Duke 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 Duke.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Patty Duke prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Duke invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and inner life.
Patty Duke often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Patty has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Patty sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Patty really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
She is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Patty Duke has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Patty Duke has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Patty Duke cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Patty finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Duke to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Patty Duke has a very creative, inventive streak.
