Even though she has a tactful and generally pleasing way of expressing herself (as described on the previous page), Claudette Colbert actually maintains high standards and can be quite a perfectionist (as discussed below). Inside she is more skeptical and judgmental than she appears.
At heart Claudette Colbert is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Claudette Colbert has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Colbert can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in her work and she takes pride in a job well done. What she may lack in self-confidence Claudette Colbert often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Colbert can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Claudette Colbert likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Colbert. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Colbert can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Colbert tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Claudette has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Colbert can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Claudette Colbert seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.
She is cautious, realistic and practical in her approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Claudette Colbert analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Colbert allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Claudette Colbert really shines and expresses her creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to her.
Claudette Colbert aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Colbert's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Claudette.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, her life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Claudette Colbert is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Colbert has a rebellious streak and she often feels she is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to her.
She is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Claudette often hides the intensity of her feelings and her personal motives and desires. Colbert is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Claudette Colbert tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Claudette Colbert both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
