approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Amber's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Amber Tamblyn comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Amber Tamblyn - 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 Amber Tamblyn" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Amber a little better. This page describes the disguise Tamblyn wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Amber Tamblyn meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Amber projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Tamblyn is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Amber Tamblyn may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Tamblyn is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Amber to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Amber Tamblyn feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Tamblyn's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Amber Tamblyn it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Amber Tamblyn is not a follower. Others see Amber as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Tamblyn presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Amber Tamblyn seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know her or form close friendships with her. To others, Amber may appear standoffish, as if she were judging them from afar.
At times Amber Tamblyn comes across as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or she may get involved in relationships that are "fatal attractions", where she acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality to Tamblyn's demeanor that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Amber Tamblyn irresistibly.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Amber Tamblyn which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Amber is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Amber Tamblyn needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Amber Tamblyn tends to be extremely hard on herself and others. She may have been brought up under difficult circumstances and now feels that life is very tough. Amber does her duty, expects the same of others, and has no pity for anyone.
