approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Debbie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Debbie Allen comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Debbie Allen - 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 Debbie Allen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Debbie a little better. This page describes the disguise Allen 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, Debbie Allen always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Allen will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Debbie Allen 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. Debbie Allen also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Allen's environment is very important to Allen.
Allen 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. Debbie Allen 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, Debbie rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Debbie Allen as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Allen 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. Debbie 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.
Debbie Allen has a mature and rather heavy, solemn demeanor, and she tends to take herself and life too seriously. She possesses a great deal of self-control, self-discipline, and a very dominant conscience. She may be dogged by feelings of personal inadequacy and inhibition. Debbie Allen seems authoritarian to others.
The way Debbie Allen comes across to others, particularly at first impression, tends to conceal certain important facets of her character. Specifically, what gives Debbie pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent based on Allen's outward demeanor. Debbie Allen 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.
Other people may consider her environment a bit strange and Allen likes to surround herself with a certain air of mystery. Debbie Allen tends to be very secretive and is likely to exert her power from behind the scenes.
