approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bebe's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Bebe Buell comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bebe Buell - 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 Bebe Buell" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Bebe a little better. This page describes the disguise Buell 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, Bebe Buell 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. Bebe has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Bebe Buell very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Buell is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Bebe Buell will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Buell'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. Bebe Buell 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 Buell is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Bebe 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 Bebe Buell - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Bebe Buell 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 Bebe.
Others see Bebe Buell as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Buell 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 Bebe Buell usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Though personable and pleasant, Bebe Buell also comes across as controlled and even somber or heavy at times. While she very much wants to participate socially, it is hard for Bebe Buell to let go and express herself in a free, spontaneous, uncensored way. She is very sincere, conscientious, and concerned about how her behavior affects other people, and in fact tends to be overly responsible. Bebe Buell takes personal commitments very much to heart and thus comes across as very trustworthy, albeit a bit overly serious, to others.
Bebe Buell seems gentle and receptive and often does not make a clear, strong impression on others. Bebe Buell has an elusive and subtle quality, and people may be nebulous about who she is. She is easily influenced by others and somewhat naive. Bebe Buell has a spiritual, mystical approach to life and she is very idealistic and sometimes impractical.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Bebe Buell has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Bebe Buell often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Bebe into trouble. Bebe Buell tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Bebe Buell needs to moderate her temper to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
Bebe Buell seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that she is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being herself. Buell tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Bebe has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. She may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Bebe's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Her family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a note of gravity to Bebe's personality. Somewhat insecure, Bebe Buell may feel that others restrain her. She has doubts about mankind in general and a fear of failure.
