approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Evelyn's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Evelyn Keyes comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Evelyn Keyes - 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 Evelyn Keyes" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Evelyn a little better. This page describes the disguise Keyes wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Evelyn Keyes is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Keyes sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Evelyn's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Evelyn Keyes herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Evelyn Keyes is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Evelyn Keyes is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Keyes probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Keyes' relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Evelyn Keyes as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Evelyn does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Evelyn Keyes is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Evelyn Keyes is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Evelyn Keyes needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Keyes' work or outside social activities.
To others, she may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of Evelyn Keyes, especially through her pity or sympathy. If Evelyn seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, she should try to see how her own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
Evelyn has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with her winning ways - is likely to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Evelyn Keyes is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Keyes must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Keyes may well have been discouraged from freely expressing herself. Moreover, she may be seriously inhibited by an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line.
