approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Betty's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Betty White comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Betty White - 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 Betty White" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Betty a little better. This page describes the disguise White wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Betty White likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. White must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Betty does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Betty White also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats her in a humiliating or dishonorable way. White will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Betty dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
White admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Betty White befriends someone, White is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. She is very giving and generous, but her gifts are never anonymous - Betty expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Betty White often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as herself, for she does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If she is not in the leading role, she aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Betty White has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Betty always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Betty White also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although she does not like others to realize just how important it is to her.
Her outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Her own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Betty more than anything else. Betty White feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
White projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Betty White generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and she may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Betty White emanates.
The way Betty White comes across to others, particularly at first impression, tends to conceal certain important facets of her character. Specifically, what gives Betty pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent based on White's outward demeanor. Betty White seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to her or knowing her on more than a superficial level.
Betty White has a tendency to react violently to the influence of her surroundings and to throw herself headlong into everything she does, suffering the consequences later on. Until Betty learns to alter her conduct, there are likely to be many upsets in her relationships.
