approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Emily's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Emily Post comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Emily Post - 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 Emily Post" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Emily a little better. This page describes the disguise Post wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Emily 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. Emily Post 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. Emily Post 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. Emily Post 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. Emily Post has great faith in life and she bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Emily Post 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 Emily 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 Emily Post 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. Post 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 Emily Post 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.
She is forceful and energetic and goes for what she wants quite aggressively. She is a doer and an achiever and has a positive "I can" attitude. She may run over people and stir up opposition and conflict because Emily Post tends to be very self-centered, or simply oblivious to the needs and intentions of others.
Emily Post has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Emily will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Post can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Emily that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Emily Post may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Emily has causes, passions, or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Post is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
Emily Post feels good about herself and enjoys good relationships with her friends and neighbors. She exchanges ideas with them in a very relaxed and open manner, always willing to learn more about herself, the world and other people.
