approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Carole's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Carole Lombard comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Carole Lombard - 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 Carole Lombard" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Carole a little better. This page describes the disguise Lombard wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Carole Lombard is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Carole tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Lombard's way of dealing with problems.
Carole Lombard may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Lombard's emotional balance and well-being.
Carole Lombard is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Carole Lombard probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Lombard's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Lombard, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Lombard's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Lombard will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Carole Lombard overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Lombard's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Carole through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Lombard's more rational friends. Carole Lombard certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Carole Lombard has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Carole Lombard to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
She is impressionable, sympathetic, and responsive to the emotional tone and atmosphere around her. Carole Lombard harmonizes, blends, and adapts herself to other people. Often she is rather quiet, just listening and feeling. She is subtle and knows when to keep silent and wait. Carole acts instinctively, sensing and intuiting when the time is right for action.
Her desire to love and to be loved is very much apparent, very much on the surface, and Carole Lombard is known for her personal charm and affectionate nature. She may also seem overly dependent on others' approval and appreciation of her.
Carole Lombard appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if she has their best interests at heart. Because others view Lombard as a tolerant, understanding, and even wise person, they may also turn to her for counsel.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Carole Lombard that may have little to do with her physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that she emanates. Also, Lombard tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. Her instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
Carole often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will put up a lot of resistance to Carole Lombard and her objectives. Lombard might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
It could be hard for Carole Lombard to hold her ground and she may be taken advantage of easily. Lombard displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
Lombard is cheerful, warm-hearted and social and she strives for a pleasant life. She likes to be seen in social circles and is charitable to her fellow man. It makes Carole Lombard happy to be involved in many relationships and she is very sympathetic toward everyone.
