approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Frances' basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Frances Scully comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Frances Scully - 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 Frances Scully" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Frances a little better. This page describes the disguise Scully wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Frances Scully is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Frances tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Scully's way of dealing with problems.
Frances Scully may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Scully's emotional balance and well-being.
Frances Scully is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Frances Scully probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Scully's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Scully, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Scully's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Scully will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Frances Scully overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Scully's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Frances through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Scully's more rational friends. Frances Scully certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Frances Scully has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Frances Scully to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
She may seem to others to be very gentle, malleable, and easily taken in. As a result, people can take advantage of Frances Scully, especially through her pity or sympathy. If Frances seems to be continually disappointed by or deceived by others, she should try to see how her own naiveté may be contributing to these situations.
Frances Scully appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Frances Scully may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Frances into trouble. Frances Scully tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Frances Scully needs to moderate her temper to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
At times her desire to impress other people, to be important, or to be popular may make Scully does things that go against her better judgment. Even Frances' sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, seen as pompousness or interference. Frances Scully needs to be aware of her tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
Frances Scully has a strong desire to make an extra-ordinary or unusual impression on her environment. Frances has the ability to fascinate and sweep along others, but she can also be quite inconsiderate and ruthless.
