The Zest of Knowing Oneself

Checklist:
- two distinct sides to a changeable personality: Now you see it, now you don't [True to the core]

- changes of expression are as fascinating to watch as the psychedelic lights in a discotheque (Hate? Ecstasy? Intelligence? Idealism? Sorrow? Joy?) [Interesting!]

- skip back and forth in a book, a pattern of action preferred when it comes to things other than reading [This is so true]


- talk fast, listen fast [Aha... a virtue]


- impatient with people who can't make up their minds where they stand on particular issues [Absolutely agree! Want it? Just do/say it laaa... what the wait?]

- an eagerness, immediate, sympathetic friendliness; unusually quick but graceful [Errr...]

- talk themselves in and out of situations with the greatest ease [Why not... if that situation embarasses me]

- like an inquisitive bird, survey the scene with excited curiosity, then dart off in a different direction [Hmmm...]

- can do two things at once with less effort [Multi-tasking is a skill of survival maa...]

- disguise true motives and feel a compulsion to behave in a way exactly opposite to real desires [Oh yeah, this is a must, so that I'm not betrayed by my own feelings]

- has a knack for writing - speeches, commercials, documentaries, plays and books, able to turn a clever phrase and string words together intelligently [No wonder I'm a copywriter]

- born with defense mechanism [YES! Don't you ever wrong me!]

- speaks, understands or reads more than one language, triumph with words [Haha... I LOVE languages!]

- should try hard to achieve rest, rest and more rest, to heal those jangled nerves and renew the over-active brain cells, because nervous exhaustion is a constant threat [Ok... noted]

- can suffer an emotional breakdown more easily from boredom and confinement than from over-activity [Whoa... scary!]


- a mental explorer; deep inside its searching and impatient nature lies the seeking of an ideal but the chief problem is in recognizing what it is. It could be anything, since imagination knows no boundaries. Money, fame, wealth, love and career are never quite enough [I'm still searching...]


- sharp eyes, multi-talented, has a brilliant humor, tact, diplomacy and adroitness, yet he persistence and patience; throws away the precious old too quickly for the untried new, then lives to regret the instant disposal [Oh, so sad...]

The lady in her:
- a romantic one, capable of intense passion [Oh, is it?]

- age is an important clue to what one can expect, because until she matures, romance is only a game; can be fickle and unpredictable to an incredible degree. First she'll be ecstatically carried away by your smile and your voice, even the way you walk. Then she'll reverse her ecstasy and criticize everything from your socks to your haircut, and she usually does it with such clever, sharp sarcasm, you may need iodine for your wounds [I can be quite sarcastic at times :P]

- aren't as heartless as they seem to be at times. Their active imaginations create many fantasies. Romance is the easiest way they can express them [Huh?]


- needs your pity, not your anger [True. Don't scream at me]


- While she's being impressed with a man's mental abilities and his intelligent wit, another side of her is noticing his antipathy toward the arts or his lack of response to music and poetry. When she finds someone who's appropriately creative, who's at home at the ballet or in the literary world, the duality pops up again [Ooohhh... if the one is musically- or creatively-inclined, my knees will wobble....]

- when the mood is on the up-swing, she'll sparkle with a vivacious personality, amuse you with her clever, witty remarks, and converse intelligently about almost any subject under the sun [Haha... Nyek... nyek... nyek...]


- enjoys all the sentimental gestures of romance and has no trouble making conquests. No woman you've ever met will delight you with more imaginative ways of loving you and such appealing charm. She can flutter her lashes with delicate femininity, but she's not at all helpless when it comes to earning her own living [Wow...]


- can play the giddy party girl to perfection, but can smoothly change into a demure and adoring housewife, from which she can quickly switch into a serious intellectual who studies the great philosophers and talks about politics or poetry brilliantly, then suddenly turn into a bundle of raw emotion, full of nerves, tears and fears. She's certainly not stuffy or monotonous [I wonder is this good or bad]


- longs to be "really, truly in love," but it keeps eluding her. She yearns for motherhood, but often that eludes her, too. She finds a different perfection in each man she meets, as she restlessly searches for the one man who has all the qualities she needs for happiness [Where are you, Mr. Right?]


- sharp mentality will show clearly when her curiosity is excited by any new subject; see all the intricacies of your creative ideas and will probably throw in a few promotional schemes of her own. As long as you don't demand consistency from her, she'll be completely fascinating [Hohoho...]


- once you've proposed to her and she's accepted, you can pity all those men who are doomed to a life of monogamy with just one woman. You'll have several wives when you marry your Gemini [This is very interesting]


Wife Number One
- adjust to anything you require of her. If you require faithfulness, she can manage that, too, providing you're interesting enough to have won her real love
- never sulk if you take a new job out of town. With her ingenuity, taste and sense of color, she can make a new home look lovely with a light touch of her dainty, clever hand
- count on her to go to work if you need extra income, and she'll be pretty practical about how to spend it
- a thinker and a very clever one, underneath all the bright small talk

Wife Number Two
- moody and will have her satirical moments when she can be cynical and flippant, by turns
- challenge you mentally. But a man needs to be stimu-lated, doesn't he? Go ahead, top her in an intellectual argument. (It's what she secretly wants anyway)
- won't be easily shocked by life or have any preconceived prejudices. She may decide to march in a protest parade or join a sit-in and forget to come home until midnight
- a highly independent individualist

Wife Number Three
- bored and depressed with housekeeping routines. The beds will be unmade and the dishes will stand in the sink while she daydreams, reads or writes the outline for a play. She may serve you a can of beans for dinner without even bothering to open the can. But you can have the most soul-satisfying conversations with her into the wee, small hours
- will sympathize with your frustrations at the way life has treated you and satisfy both your emotional and your intellectual cravings - pretty good company, very affectionate too

Wife Number Four
- a gay and laughing mother; won't let the children restrict herbecause she'll probably have too many projects going constantly to smother them with over-protectiveness
- if anyone asks her how much time she spends with them, she'll probably answer, "In our family, it's not a matter of how much time. It's a matter of how much love"
- the children may not always obey her because she's inclined to be emphatic one day, then melt and give in the next, but the youngsters will love their long talks with her. Her imagination will match theirs, and they'll amuse each other
- probably be a permissive mother but she'll worry about scholastic averages, and she'll probably insist on good grades. They won't get by without doing their homework if she can help it, although they may get by without hanging up their clothes

Wife Number Five
- a beautiful hostess, an expert at the whole candlelight, flowers and sterling silver routine. You can bring anyone, from your boss to the Governor home to dinner and she'll be so gracious and charming, they'll never want to leave
- will organize her life efficiently and effortlessly, dress like a fashion model and love the theater. You can take her to art galleries and concerts - she'll be right at home in any kind of society. Everyone will stare at you enviously and wonder who the glamorous woman is who hangs on your arm so sweetly
- romantic and ultra-feminine, maybe even write you a poem for your birthday
[Whoa...]

- never be silent when she can speak


- never turn away when she can help; never walk when she can run

- her mind is full of so many thoughts and her heart is full of so many hopes, she may seem to need a computer to sort it all out. Or does she just need someone who can run beside her and toss dreams with her-from here to tomorrow?

- If you're that man, she doesn't dare look over her shoulder to see if you're near. Some deep, unexplained fear within her keeps her from ever looking back. When you finally match her speed, get her to slow down to your pace. You can do it, if you hold her hand tightly and never let it go. Though Mercurial north winds drive her on, secretly she may long to rest awhile more than you know. Do hurry and try to reach her. She needs you. [Speechless]

  1. I just realised how scary and needy the whole thing makes us Geminis sound when you write it out like that. :P
