approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Carly's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Carly Simon comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Carly Simon - 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 Carly Simon" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Carly a little better. This page describes the disguise Simon 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, Carly Simon always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Simon will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Carly Simon 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. Carly Simon also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Simon's environment is very important to Simon.
Simon 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. Carly Simon 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, Carly rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Carly Simon as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Simon 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. Carly 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.
Carly Simon radiates a sense of good will, optimism, and trust, which inspires hope in other people. Her presence has a healing effect on others even without Simon's awareness. Though Simon appears modest and content in a humble position, she has a sense of inner greatness or worthiness that is unmistakable. Carly Simon also has a balance of confidence and humility, of faith and caution, that makes her very appealing to others and she has many more admirers than she realizes.
Carly has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with her winning ways - is likely to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Carly Simon is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Simon must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
