approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Doris' basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Doris Dowling comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Doris Dowling - 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 Dowling" 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 Dowling wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Doris Dowling likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Dowling must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Doris does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Doris Dowling also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats her in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Dowling will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Doris dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Dowling admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Doris Dowling befriends someone, Dowling is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. She is very giving and generous, but her gifts are never anonymous - Doris expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Doris Dowling often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as herself, for she does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If she is not in the leading role, she aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Doris Dowling has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Doris always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Doris Dowling also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although she does not like others to realize just how important it is to her.
Her outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Her own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Doris more than anything else. Doris Dowling feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Doris Dowling has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Doris Dowling often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Doris Dowling 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 Dowling may wish she was not so easy to read.
Doris has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with her winning ways, is apt to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Doris Dowling is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Dowling must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
