approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Inés' basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Inés Sastre comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Inés Sastre - 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 Inés Sastre" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Inés a little better. This page describes the disguise Sastre wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, she is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Inés Sastre frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. She is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Sastre, and she tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. She is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
She is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning her moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. She is willing to work long and persistently for what she wants and she often does things the hard way. Inés does not expect others to take care of her and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. She is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about her approach. She is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with her duties to others and how she comes across socially - her "rank" so to speak.
To others Inés Sastre seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Inés dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Sastre likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Inés Sastre respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and she feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Sastre's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Inés Sastre has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to her personality. She expects much from herself and may not give herself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
She also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve her money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Inés Sastre spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in her. Inés exercises great self-discipline and self-control and she can "do without" very well. Her tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though she may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Sastre shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
She projects a very beautiful, pleasing, aesthetically appealing image to the world. Whatever Inés Sastre does is done very tastefully and elegantly. Though she is conservative and controlled, she is also a loving person. Inés' beauty and/or personal charm is one of the first things people notice about her. She is highly attractive, and possibly vain.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Inés Sastre could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Sastre may wish she was not so easy to read.
Her pleasant and friendly disposition enables Inés Sastre to come in quick personal relationships with other people. She enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to her environment.
