approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Beatrice's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Beatrice Webb comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Beatrice Webb - 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 Beatrice Webb" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Beatrice a little better. This page describes the disguise Webb wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Beatrice Webb 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, Beatrice 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. Webb 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. Beatrice Webb 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.
Webb 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 Beatrice to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Beatrice Webb 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 Webb's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Beatrice Webb 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. Beatrice Webb is not a follower. Others see Beatrice as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Webb presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Beatrice often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is 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 put up a lot of resistance to Beatrice Webb and her objectives. Webb might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
Beatrice Webb has a sympathetic understanding of others and the ability to see through people. Very sensitive, her emotional state depends a lot on the influence of her immediate surroundings and relationships. For this reason others may see Beatrice as a somewhat unstable person.
Beatrice Webb has a strong need to influence others and to dominate her home or environment. She is likely to join associations with large groups of people and some of Webb's relationships will be very important to her and possibly affect her future.
