approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Anne's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Anne Baxter comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Anne Baxter - 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 Anne Baxter" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Anne a little better. This page describes the disguise Baxter wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Baxter's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Anne Baxter wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Anne Baxter wants, Anne Baxter usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Anne wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Anne Baxter functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Anne Baxter usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Baxter approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Anne Baxter also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Baxter. When Anne Baxter commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Anne Baxter is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Anne Baxter as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Anne Baxter also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
There is a certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Anne Baxter that may have little to do with her physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that she emanates. Moreover, Baxter tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. Her instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
The initial impression Baxter makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Anne thinks and her true opinions are not always readily apparent. Anne Baxter may try to clothe her ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute rather than clarify them. For instance, she may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems as though she does not stand behind it as vigorously as she would like. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Anne Baxter tends to become scattered and nervous when she is out of balance. She needs clarity and order in her environment to be at her finest.
