approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alice's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Alice Faye comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alice Faye - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Alice Faye" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alice a little better. This page describes the disguise Faye wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, she is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Alice Faye frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. She is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Faye, and she tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. She is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
She is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning her moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. She is willing to work long and persistently for what she wants and she often does things the hard way. Alice does not expect others to take care of her and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. She is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about her approach. She is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with her duties to others and how she comes across socially - her "rank" so to speak.
To others Alice Faye seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Alice dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Faye likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Alice Faye respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and she feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Faye's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Alice Faye has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to her personality. She expects much from herself and may not give herself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
She also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve her money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Alice Faye spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in her. Alice exercises great self-discipline and self-control and she can "do without" very well. Her tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though she may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Faye shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
To others, she may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of Alice Faye, especially through her pity or sympathy. If Alice seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, she should try to see how her own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Alice Faye seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Alice tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Alice Faye appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. She may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Alice Faye may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
To others, Alice Faye appears capable, mature and down to earth. Even when she was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Alice that inspired people to rely on her. Faye keeps her cool in most situations.
