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 Burke comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Billie Burke - 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 Burke" 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 Burke 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 Burke's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Billie Burke wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Billie Burke wants, Billie Burke usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Billie 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. Billie Burke 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. Billie Burke usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Burke approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Billie Burke 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 Burke. When Billie Burke 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, Billie Burke 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 Billie Burke as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Billie Burke also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Billie Burke appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Burke understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Billie Burke really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Billie Burke is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Billie radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
To others, Billie Burke appears capable, mature and down to earth. Even when she was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Billie that inspired people to rely on her. Burke keeps her cool in most situations.
Burke projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Billie Burke 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 Billie Burke emanates.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Billie that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Billie Burke may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Billie has causes, passions or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Burke is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
