approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Coleen's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Coleen McLoughlin comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Coleen McLoughlin - 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 Coleen McLoughlin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Coleen a little better. This page describes the disguise McLoughlin wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Coleen McLoughlin appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Coleen has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. McLoughlin tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to McLoughlin.
McLoughlin approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Coleen McLoughlin is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Coleen's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Coleen and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
