approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Deborah's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Deborah Kerr comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Deborah Kerr - 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 Deborah Kerr" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Deborah a little better. This page describes the disguise Kerr wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Deborah Kerr will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Deborah has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Deborah Kerr very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Kerr is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Deborah Kerr will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Kerr's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Deborah Kerr appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Kerr is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Deborah possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Deborah Kerr - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Deborah Kerr does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Deborah.
Others see Deborah Kerr as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Kerr shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Deborah Kerr usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Deborah Kerr appears confident and self-assured and she makes a definite impression on other people: She cannot be ignored. Personal recognition and acclaim for Kerr's creative efforts is very, very important to Kerr. While Deborah wants to be a sweetheart or a "nice guy", Deborah Kerr will often find herself in leadership positions in which she needs to confront people or assert her authority decisively.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Deborah Kerr which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Deborah she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Kerr sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Deborah Kerr may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Deborah should avoid looking always on the dark side.
She may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Deborah Kerr does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Deborah's role to shake things up a bit and she may not be entirely comfortable with this herself.
Kerr's intellect and her emotions are well balanced. Deborah has the ability to manage her feelings superbly and have a cautious, adaptable and open way about her. Deborah Kerr likes to associate with the public and has an understanding for the "man on the street".
Her pleasant and friendly disposition enables Deborah Kerr to come in quick personal relationships with other people. She enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to her environment.
Deborah Kerr tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention to her. She is likely to think that other people are more important than she is and prefers to live in seclusion.
