approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bettie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Bettie Page comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bettie Page - 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 Bettie Page" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Bettie a little better. This page describes the disguise Page wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Bettie Page is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Bettie tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Page's way of dealing with problems.
Bettie Page may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Page's emotional balance and well-being.
Bettie Page is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Bettie Page probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Page's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Page, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Page's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Page will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Bettie Page overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Page's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Bettie through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Page's more rational friends. Bettie Page certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Bettie Page has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Bettie Page to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Bettie Page appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Page understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Bettie Page really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
There is a certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Bettie Page that may have little to do with her physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that she emanates. Moreover, Page 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.
A very self-confident personality and the ability to gain the respect of other people will almost assure Bettie Page of a position of leadership. She is likely to be successful and her efforts will be recognized by others.
