approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Amy's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Amy Dumas comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Amy Dumas - 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 Amy Dumas" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Amy a little better. This page describes the disguise Dumas wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Amy Dumas appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Amy has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Dumas tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Dumas.
Dumas approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Amy Dumas is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Amy's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Amy and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Amy Dumas empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Amy Dumas is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Amy Dumas communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Amy never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Amy Dumas has a mature and rather heavy, solemn demeanor, and she tends to take herself and life too seriously. She possesses a great deal of self-control, self-discipline, and a very dominant conscience. She may be dogged by feelings of personal inadequacy and inhibition. Amy Dumas seems authoritarian to others.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Amy's personality. Dumas can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Amy Dumas 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", Dumas must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Amy Dumas is. On the other hand, Amy Dumas may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Amy Dumas has a hypnotizing effect on people in her surroundings and others see her as someone with extraordinary capabilities. Amy has a strong desire to mentally dominate her relationships, and with her ability to out-talk anyone, she can sway them to her opinions.
