Although Roberta Close seems rather serious and conservative (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she has a very idealistic soul, as described below. She may feel that she is always getting in her own way, holding herself in check even when she really wants to take off and soar. Her cautious, pragmatic attitude can help balance her tendency to be overly optimistic and to occasionally go overboard. Her enterprising nature, combined with her circumspect and prudent outlook on life, could help Roberta Close be very successful in business.
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 Roberta Close, 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. Roberta Close 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. Close 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. Roberta Close has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush her spirit. Close always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Roberta Close has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and she is philosophical about her mistakes. Roberta 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.
Close 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, Roberta's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of her worst faults.
Roberta Close 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 Close.
Roberta Close tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where her efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting herself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Close.
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Roberta Close often feels that she needs to fight to get what she wants, and she tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. She is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
Close occasionally gamble, splurge, or overextend herself in ways that may be quite at odds with her usual way of doing things. Exaggerating her accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up her own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Roberta Close also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable her to recover from the negative consequences of her excesses, and to learn from them.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, her life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Roberta Close is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Close has a rebellious streak and she often feels she is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to her.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Roberta often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Close is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Roberta Close tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Roberta Close both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
