approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alley's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Alley Baggett comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alley Baggett - 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 Alley Baggett" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alley a little better. This page describes the disguise Baggett wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Alley Baggett will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Alley has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Alley Baggett very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Baggett is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Alley Baggett will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Baggett's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Alley Baggett appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Baggett is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Alley possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Alley Baggett - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Alley Baggett does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Alley.
Others see Alley Baggett as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Baggett shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Alley Baggett usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Alley Baggett tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Alley does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Alley Baggett comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. She watches her step, and frequently withdraws if her environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Baggett may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Alley is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Alley Baggett's confidence is likely to grow because she will learn to depend more on her own self-assessment..
Alley Baggett comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her and cannot resist commenting about them.
Baggett also needs to be busy and active and she moves quickly. Alley Baggett also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Alley Baggett tends to blend in with, and assume the characteristics of those around her, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe" and enjoy donning different personalities at different times.
She is very receptive to the influence of her environment, giving other people a chance to exploit or use her. Alley Baggett has the ability to tune into the events around her, but she also should be careful not to overreact to the intentions of others.
Alley Baggett tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention. She is likely to think that other people are more important than she is and prefers to live in seclusion.
