approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Billie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Billie Dove comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Billie Dove - 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 Billie Dove" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Billie a little better. This page describes the disguise Dove wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, she is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. She is quite humble in her own assessment of herself; she seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well she does something, Billie Dove always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Dove will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Billie Dove has an eye for detail and she gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. She is hard to please and her relationships with others may suffer because of this. Billie Dove also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Dove's environment is very important to Dove.
Dove steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, she is unlikely to dive into it. Billie Dove tends to underestimate her own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits her spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of hers. On the other hand, Billie rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Billie Dove as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Dove has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to her. Her clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though she is really quite helpful and caring, she does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Billie may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than she really is at heart. She is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
She is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but she is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
Billie Dove appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Dove understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Billie Dove really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
Billie Dove has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Billie coaxes rather than coerces. However, if she does not get what she wants, Billie Dove is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing it for herself. Dove seems to need others' approval first.
Billie Dove tends to blend in with, and assume the characteristics of those around her, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe" and enjoy donning different personalities at different times.
