approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Daryn's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Daryn Kagan comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Daryn Kagan - 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 Daryn Kagan" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Daryn a little better. This page describes the disguise Kagan wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Daryn Kagan has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and her two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though she may, on occasion, have her head in the clouds). Others often see Kagan as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. She is, in fact, amazingly consistent for she possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to her regular routine. Daryn does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Daryn Kagan is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. She follows her own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before she feels sure about it. Kagan can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. She will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something she does not want to do.
When Kagan has a purpose, she is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. Her obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make her flare up or respond to their anger. Daryn Kagan appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind her easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Daryn often wins simply due to her relentless persistence and her ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for her reluctance to make changes is her very strong need for security. Daryn is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and she also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of her own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Kagan's hankering for permanence is that she easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Daryn Kagan has a keen appreciation of the natural world and she derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. She is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and she knows how to enjoy herself. Kagan is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. She is also a great lover of beauty and her tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Daryn Kagan 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 Kagan may wish she was not so easy to read.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Daryn into trouble. Daryn Kagan tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Daryn Kagan needs to moderate her temper to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Daryn's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Daryn Kagan also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Kagan needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
The way Daryn Kagan comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of hers. Specifically, what gives Daryn pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Kagan's outward demeanor. Daryn Kagan seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to her or knowing her on more than a superficial level.
Her pleasant and friendly disposition enables Daryn Kagan to come in quick personal relationships with other people. She enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to her environment.
At times Daryn Kagan may feels that she is all alone in the world and that other people only cause difficulties for her. Constantly bounced to and fro by others, Daryn has a strong desire to free herself from her stressful surroundings.
She is likely to acquire a very powerful position and will gain public recognition for her efforts. Daryn Kagan may even achieve a degree of celebrity in her sphere and would make an excellent politician.
