approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Eartha's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Eartha Kitt comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Eartha Kitt - 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 Eartha Kitt" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Eartha a little better. This page describes the disguise Kitt wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Eartha loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. She is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Eartha Kitt has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything she has yet experienced, and she often lives in her dreams and visions for the future. Eartha Kitt tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and she likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, she always expects something better ahead. Eartha Kitt loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once she achieves it she is on to something else. She is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and she is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for her. Eartha Kitt has great faith in life and she bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Eartha Kitt cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect her need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Eartha and she may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
She is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. She is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about her convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Eartha Kitt gets carried away with her enthusiasm of the moment and she tends to exaggerate. She is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and she is usually pretty convincing. She does everything in a big way, a generous way. Kitt likes to have the best, and she heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. Her vision is always large. She is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and she is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Eartha Kitt as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. She may also be seen as a wise person since she does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. She is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and she inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
All of the above, while true of Eartha Kitt much of the time, is substantially tempered by a distinct tendency for caution, self-control, and seriousness. While she is idealistic, philosophical, and insightful, Eartha also seeks order and structure in her philosophical pursuits in order to clearly formulate her ideals into a particular system. Eartha can become overly concerned with her beliefs and rather abstract and removed from everyday life. Eartha Kitt has a mature demeanor and she appears wise to other people.
Eartha Kitt comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Kitt also needs to be busy and active, and she moves quickly. Eartha Kitt also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Eartha that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Eartha Kitt may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Eartha has causes, passions, or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Kitt is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
Eartha Kitt has a tendency to live in a world of her own, a world that is likely to be far from reality. Eartha wants to make a big impression, and with her dazzling personality she knows how to put on a brilliant show.
She is very sensitive to her surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. Eartha Kitt tends to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that she cannot stand up to them.
