approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ida's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Ida Lupino comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ida Lupino - 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 Ida Lupino" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ida a little better. This page describes the disguise Lupino wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Ida Lupino will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Ida has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Ida Lupino very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Lupino is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Ida Lupino will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Lupino's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Ida Lupino appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Lupino is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Ida possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Ida Lupino - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Ida Lupino does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Ida.
Others see Ida Lupino as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Lupino shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Ida Lupino usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Ida Lupino seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Ida tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Ida has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with her winning ways, is apt to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Ida Lupino is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Lupino must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Ida Lupino appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses her interest. Lupino infuses her environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Ida Lupino does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Ida Lupino tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention to her. She is likely to think that other people are more important than she is and prefers to live in seclusion.
