Inside, she is quite different from what her freewheeling, confident, playful demeanor (mentioned in the previous chapter) would suggest.

What she may lack in self-confidence Dolores Costello often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Costello can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Dolores Costello likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Costello. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Costello can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Costello tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Dolores has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Costello can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Dolores Costello seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.

Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Costello. Dolores Costello has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world.

Dolores Costello may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
