approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Doris' basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Doris Day comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Doris Day - 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 Doris Day" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Doris a little better. This page describes the disguise Day 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, Doris Day always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Day will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Doris Day 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. Doris Day also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Day's environment is very important to Day.
Day 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. Doris Day 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, Doris rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Doris Day as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Day 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. Doris 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.
She is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Doris' personality. Doris Day may seem to be a busybody to others sometimes. She may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before making up her own mind, and Day may thus appear to be indecisive.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Doris Day could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Day may wish she was not so easy to read.
The way Doris Day comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of hers. Specifically, what gives Doris pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Day's outward demeanor. Doris Day 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.
