approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Cassandra's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Cassandra Harris comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Cassandra Harris - 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 Cassandra Harris" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Cassandra a little better. This page describes the disguise Harris 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Cassandra Harris is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Cassandra 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 Harris' way of dealing with problems.
Cassandra Harris 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 Harris' emotional balance and well-being.
Cassandra Harris is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Cassandra Harris probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Harris' imagination and fantasy was also very real to Harris, 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 Harris' sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Harris will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Cassandra Harris overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Harris' 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 Cassandra through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Harris' more rational friends. Cassandra Harris certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Cassandra Harris 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 Cassandra Harris 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.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Cassandra Harris 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, Cassandra Harris often does not get the full recognition she yearns for.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Cassandra Harris seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Cassandra tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Cassandra Harris comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes she appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being herself. Harris tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Cassandra has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with her winning ways - is likely to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Cassandra Harris is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Harris must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
She is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. Harris always has something going on and is not afraid to take chances. Cassandra Harris takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep others along.
Cassandra has strong leadership qualities and finds it natural to take charge of her family environment. She throws herself wholeheartedly into all of her endeavors and does not like others to make demands on her, but Cassandra Harris will willingly give of herself in most situations.
Cassandra Harris has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but she is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in her relationships constantly. Her somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if she is not careful.
Her family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a note of gravity to Cassandra's personality. Somewhat insecure, Cassandra Harris may feel that others restrain her. She has doubts about mankind in general and a fear of failure.
Cassandra Harris tends to get easily excited and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Harris comes across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
