approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Amanda's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Amanda Peet comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Amanda Peet - 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 Amanda Peet" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Amanda a little better. This page describes the disguise Peet wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Amanda Peet has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and her two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though she may, on occasion, have her head in the clouds). Others often see Peet as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. She is, in fact, amazingly consistent for she possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to her regular routine. Amanda does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Amanda Peet is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. She follows her own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before she feels sure about it. Peet can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. She will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something she does not want to do.
When Peet has a purpose, she is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. Her obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make her flare up or respond to their anger. Amanda Peet appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind her easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Amanda often wins simply due to her relentless persistence and her ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for her reluctance to make changes is her very strong need for security. Amanda is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and she also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of her own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Peet's hankering for permanence is that she easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Amanda Peet has a keen appreciation of the natural world and she derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. She is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and she knows how to enjoy herself. Peet is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. She is also a great lover of beauty and her tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Amanda's personality. Peet can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Amanda Peet may feel frustrated because she feels that she is not being perceived very clearly, that she does not make a powerful impression, that she is easily overlooked or discounted. If she does not wish to be "invisible", Peet must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Amanda Peet is. On the other hand, Amanda Peet may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
She is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Amanda Peet changes her opinions frequently and others never know what she will do next. Because Peet is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with her.
Amanda Peet tends to think of work as a hard and necessary chore and she may feel that she has little freedom of movement because of pressure caused by her surroundings. Peet is likely to feel hemmed in and consider dealing with others quite burdensome.
