approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dinah's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Dinah Shore comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dinah Shore - 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 Dinah Shore" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dinah a little better. This page describes the disguise Shore wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Dinah Shore is always questioning and learning, and she seems young and alive no matter what her chronological age, for her mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Dinah Shore has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and she learns easily, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Shore can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for she tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. She needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, she is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Dinah Shore enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. She is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly she may be feeling, Dinah never comes across as melancholic or somber. She may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Dinah Shore has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent her from taking herself or life too seriously. In fact, Shore may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Dinah Shore responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and she may not empathize with people very much. Dinah does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if she cannot fully grasp something with her reason and logic, Shore will often choose to ignore it, including her own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Shore's and her life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to her restlessness. Dinah Shore becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. She is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
Her gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Dinah Shore tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if she does not have work or other activities that utilize her mental, verbal, and social skills.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Dinah Shore tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Dinah does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
In significant ways, Shore's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Dinah Shore may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Dinah Shore is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
