Though Paulette Goddard 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 Paulette mentally sharp, articulate and clever.
Paulette Goddard 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. Goddard grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Paulette Goddard craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Paulette Goddard 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 Paulette 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 Goddard.
Paulette Goddard 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 Paulette had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Paulette Goddard 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.
Paulette Goddard 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 Paulette Goddard 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. Paulette 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.
Goddard is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world.
Paulette Goddard is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
Her deep comprehension and good powers of concentration give Paulette Goddard the ability to judge matters wisely and prudently. She is a keen observer and also can be a persuasive speaker. Paulette likes to be in control, but needs appreciation and recognition for her efforts.
Goddard alternates between aggression and apathy and sometimes feels that she is unable to meet all the demands made on her. Once Paulette Goddard becomes aware of what she needs to do, however, she is capable of working long and hard, not giving up until her work is done.
Paulette Goddard tends to impose her will upon others in a rather ruthless way, but on the other hand she may also be imposed upon by others. Paulette feels a constant need to fight for leadership and has a great desire to become a public figure.
