Behind Braga's rather rambunctious, sporty, exuberant demeanor (described in the previous chapter), she is also quick-witted, intelligent and in need of mental stimulation as much as physical freedom.
Sônia Braga 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. Braga grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Sônia Braga craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Sônia Braga 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 Sônia 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 Braga.
Sônia Braga 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 Sônia had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Sônia Braga 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.
Sônia Braga 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 Sônia Braga 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. Sônia 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 energies are directed to either perfecting her techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving herself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Sônia Braga's, and she is quite a perfectionist!
Braga can easily become overly identified or involved with the function she performs, with her work, or with her own health and "growth process".
She is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Sônia Braga has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to her obligations and duties. Sônia Braga tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take herself too seriously.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Sônia Braga also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
She is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. Her spiritual values color Sônia's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Sônia Braga undergoes deep, transformative changes in her life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because she does not avoid the depths, Braga has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Sônia is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people she comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Sônia Braga is a force to be reckoned with.
Sônia Braga feels physically strong and fit and has a healthy sex-life. Her actions are governed by a strong sense of honor and integrity. Braga is ambitious with a talent for organizing and a strong desire to succeed, insuring by that her professional success.
