approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Catherine's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Catherine Allégret comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Catherine Allégret - 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 Catherine Allégret" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Catherine a little better. This page describes the disguise Allégret wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, she is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Catherine Allégret frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. She is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Allégret, and she tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. She is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
She is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning her moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. She is willing to work long and persistently for what she wants and she often does things the hard way. Catherine does not expect others to take care of her and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. She is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about her approach. She is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with her duties to others and how she comes across socially - her "rank" so to speak.
To others Catherine Allégret seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Catherine dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Allégret likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Catherine Allégret respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and she feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Allégret's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Catherine Allégret has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to her personality. She expects much from herself and may not give herself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
She also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve her money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Catherine Allégret spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in her. Catherine exercises great self-discipline and self-control and she can "do without" very well. Her tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though she may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Allégret shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
She may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Catherine Allégret likes to get everything out in the open and she generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. Her relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Allégret may seem to run into more than her share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness her energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Allégret's challenge.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Catherine Allégret has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Catherine Allégret often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Catherine Allégret could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Allégret may wish she was not so easy to read.
Catherine Allégret has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Catherine will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Allégret can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Catherine Allégret seems to enjoy projecting herself differently to others than she really is, giving them a false impression of herself. She is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
