approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ann's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Ann Sothern comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ann Sothern - 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 Ann Sothern" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ann a little better. This page describes the disguise Sothern wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ann Sothern 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 Sothern 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. Ann does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Ann Sothern 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. Sothern 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 Sothern 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. Ann Sothern 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, Ann 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. Ann 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 Sothern'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.
Ann Sothern 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. Sothern 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.
Her emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Ann Sothern could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Sothern may wish she were not so easy to read.
Ann has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with her winning ways - is likely to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Ann Sothern is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Sothern must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Ann often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally, if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will strongly resist Ann Sothern and her objectives. Sothern might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
