approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lady Mosley's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Diana Mitford comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Diana Mitford - 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 Diana Mitford" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lady Mosley a little better. This page describes the disguise Mitford 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, Diana Mitford 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. Lady Mosley has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Diana Mitford very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Mitford is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Diana Mitford will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Mitford'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. Diana Mitford 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 Mitford is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Lady Mosley 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 Diana Mitford - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Diana Mitford 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 Lady Mosley.
Others see Diana Mitford as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Mitford 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 Diana Mitford usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Diana Mitford is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around her, and at times she can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Diana Mitford tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person she is with the most.
The way Diana Mitford comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of hers. Specifically, what gives Lady Mosley pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Mitford's outward demeanor. Diana Mitford 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.
Lady Mosley has an open and cheerful manner and attracts attention because of her good taste in clothing, hairdo and general well kept appearance. Lady Mosley has the ability to create a harmonious environment and relationships and she is happy and confident in the company of others.
