approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gloria's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Gloria Swanson comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gloria Swanson - 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 Gloria Swanson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gloria a little better. This page describes the disguise Swanson wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Gloria 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. Gloria Swanson 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. Gloria Swanson 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. Gloria Swanson 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. Gloria Swanson has great faith in life and she bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Gloria Swanson 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 Gloria 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 Gloria Swanson 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. Swanson 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 Gloria Swanson 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.
All of the above, while true of Gloria Swanson much of the time, is substantially tempered by a distinct tendency for caution, self-control, and seriousness. While she is idealistic, philosophical, and insightful, Gloria also seeks order and structure in her philosophical pursuits in order to clearly formulate her ideals into a particular system. Gloria can become overly concerned with her beliefs and rather abstract and removed from everyday life. Gloria Swanson has a mature demeanor and she appears wise to other people.
She may seem to others to be very gentle, malleable, and easily taken in. As a result, people can take advantage of Gloria Swanson, especially through her pity or sympathy. If Gloria 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.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Gloria's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Gloria Swanson also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Swanson needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
Gloria Swanson has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Gloria coax rather than coerce. However, if she does not get what she wants, Gloria Swanson is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing for herself. Swanson seems to need others' approval first.
Swanson strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around her, Gloria Swanson spontaneously connect with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
