approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bernadette's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Bernadette Peters comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bernadette Peters - 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 Bernadette Peters" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Bernadette a little better. This page describes the disguise Peters 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 Peters' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Bernadette Peters wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Bernadette Peters wants, Bernadette Peters usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Bernadette 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. Bernadette Peters 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. Bernadette Peters usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Peters approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Bernadette Peters 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 Peters. When Bernadette Peters 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, Bernadette Peters 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 Bernadette Peters as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Bernadette Peters also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
She is impressionable, sympathetic, and responsive to the emotional tone and atmosphere around her. Bernadette Peters harmonizes, blends, and adapts herself to other people. Often she is rather quiet, just listening and feeling. She is subtle and knows when to keep silent and wait. Bernadette acts instinctively, sensing and intuiting when the time is right for action.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Bernadette Peters which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Bernadette she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Peters sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Bernadette Peters may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Bernadette should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Bernadette Peters radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore Peters when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
