approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dorothy's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Dorothy Squires comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dorothy Squires - 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 Dorothy Squires" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dorothy a little better. This page describes the disguise Squires wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Dorothy Squires appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Dorothy has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Squires tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Squires.
Squires approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Dorothy Squires is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Dorothy's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Dorothy and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Dorothy Squires empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Dorothy Squires is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Dorothy Squires communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Dorothy never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Dorothy Squires seems gentle and receptive and often does not make a clear, strong impression on others. Dorothy Squires has an elusive and subtle quality, and people may be nebulous about who she is. She is easily influenced by others and somewhat naive. Dorothy Squires has a spiritual, mystical approach to life and she is very idealistic and sometimes impractical.
Dorothy Squires has a sympathetic understanding of others and the ability to see through people. She is very sensitive and her emotional state depends a lot on the influence of her immediate surroundings and relationships. For this reason, others may see Dorothy as a somewhat unstable person.
