approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of H.D.'s basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Hilda Doolittle comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Hilda Doolittle - 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 Hilda Doolittle" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know H.D. a little better. This page describes the disguise Doolittle wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, H.D. 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. Hilda Doolittle 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. Hilda Doolittle 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. Hilda Doolittle 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. Hilda Doolittle has great faith in life and she bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Hilda Doolittle 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 H.D. 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 Hilda Doolittle 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. Doolittle 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 Hilda Doolittle 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.
Doolittle projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Hilda Doolittle generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and it may seem that she H.D. somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Hilda Doolittle emanates.
Hilda Doolittle appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in her manner. She is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Doolittle is unreliable.
