Even though she is imaginative and emotional (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she also has a very sharp, quick mind, as discussed below. Rachel Carson thinks and reasons - as well as feels and empathizes - with both her heart and her head to make her way in life.
Rachel Carson 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. Carson grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Rachel Carson craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Rachel Carson 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 Rachel 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 Carson.
Rachel Carson 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 Rachel had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Rachel Carson 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.
Rachel Carson 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 Rachel Carson 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. Rachel 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.
Ownership gives Rachel Carson a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Rachel also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Rachel Carson 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. Rachel Carson 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 Rachel Carson 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 Rachel Carson 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.
