approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Estée's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Estée Lauder comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Estée Lauder - 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 Estée Lauder" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Estée a little better. This page describes the disguise Lauder wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Estée Lauder will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Estée has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Estée Lauder very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Lauder is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Estée Lauder will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Lauder's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Estée Lauder appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Lauder is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Estée possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Estée Lauder - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Estée Lauder does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Estée.
Others see Estée Lauder as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Lauder shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Estée Lauder usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Estée Lauder seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know her or form close friendships with her. To others, Estée may appear standoffish, as if she judges them from afar.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Estée Lauder 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, Estée Lauder often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
