approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Annie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Annie Sprinkle comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Annie Sprinkle - 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 Annie Sprinkle" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Annie a little better. This page describes the disguise Sprinkle wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Annie Sprinkle will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Annie has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Annie Sprinkle very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Sprinkle is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Annie Sprinkle will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Sprinkle's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Annie Sprinkle appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Sprinkle is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Annie possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Annie Sprinkle - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Annie Sprinkle does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Annie.
Others see Annie Sprinkle as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Sprinkle shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Annie Sprinkle usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Annie Sprinkle seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Annie tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
In significant ways, Sprinkle's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Annie Sprinkle may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Annie Sprinkle is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
She is able to control her feelings and conduct herself in a very proper manner. Because of her inner shyness, Annie Sprinkle tends to separate herself from others and gives the impression that she does not want to be talked to.
