approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Blanche's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Blanche Baker comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Blanche Baker - 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 Blanche Baker" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Blanche a little better. This page describes the disguise Baker wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Blanche Baker meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Blanche projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Baker is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Blanche Baker may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Baker is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Blanche to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Blanche Baker feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Baker's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Blanche Baker it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Blanche Baker is not a follower. Others see Blanche as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Baker presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Blanche Baker appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if she had their best interest at heart. Because others view Baker as a tolerant, understanding and even wise person, they may also seek her counsel.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Blanche Baker has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Blanche Baker often does not get the full recognition she yearns for.
Blanche has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with her winning ways - is likely to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Blanche Baker is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Baker must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Blanche's personality. Baker can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Blanche Baker may feel frustrated because she feels that she is not being perceived very clearly, that she does not make a powerful impression, that she is easily overlooked or discounted. If she does not wish to be "invisible", Baker must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Blanche Baker is. On the other hand, Blanche Baker may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Blanche that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Blanche Baker may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Blanche has causes, passions or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Baker is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
Other people may consider her environment a bit strange and Baker likes to surround herself with a certain air of mystery. Blanche Baker tends to be very secretive and is likely to exert her power from behind the scenes.
