Even though Zola Budd comes across as headstrong and independent (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is not a loner. As the following paragraphs describe, she is really a very social and gregarious creature at heart. Communication is very important to her, but Budd often speaks too forcefully and she may not be as good a listener as she is a speaker. Moreover, Zola Budd should be careful not to let her fast-paced life cause her to become high-strung and nervous.
Zola Budd 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. Budd grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Zola Budd craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Zola Budd 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 Zola 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 Budd.
Zola Budd 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 Zola had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Zola Budd 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.
Zola Budd 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 Zola Budd 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. Zola 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 Zola Budd a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Zola also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Zola Budd 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. Zola Budd has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
She is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Zola Budd has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Zola Budd has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
