approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Courteney's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Courteney Cox comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Courteney Cox - 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 Courteney Cox" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Courteney a little better. This page describes the disguise Cox wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, she is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. She is quite humble in her own assessment of herself; she seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well she does something, Courteney Cox always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Cox will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Courteney Cox has an eye for detail and she gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. She is hard to please and her relationships with others may suffer because of this. Courteney Cox also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Cox's environment is very important to Cox.
Cox steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, she is unlikely to dive into it. Courteney Cox tends to underestimate her own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits her spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of hers. On the other hand, Courteney rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Courteney Cox as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Cox has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to her. Her clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though she is really quite helpful and caring, she does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Courteney may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than she really is at heart. She is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
She is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but she is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Courteney Cox 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, Courteney Cox often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
Courteney Cox appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Courteney Cox may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Courteney Cox is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Courteney radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
