Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Germaine Tailleferre" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Germaine a little better. This page describes the disguise Tailleferre wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Germaine Tailleferre likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Tailleferre must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Germaine does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Germaine Tailleferre also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats her in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Tailleferre will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Germaine dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Tailleferre admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Germaine Tailleferre befriends someone, Tailleferre is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. She is very giving and generous, but her gifts are never anonymous - Germaine expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Germaine Tailleferre often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as herself, for she does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If she is not in the leading role, she aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Germaine Tailleferre has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Germaine always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Germaine Tailleferre also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although she does not like others to realize just how important it is to her.
Her outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Her own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Germaine more than anything else. Germaine Tailleferre feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Germaine Tailleferre radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore Tailleferre when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Germaine's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Germaine Tailleferre also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Tailleferre needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
She is charming and friendly to everyone, but may prefer more superficial and frequently changing relationships with people rather than steady and lasting friendships. Some of her meetings with others could come about suddenly.
