approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Isadora's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Isadora Duncan comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Isadora Duncan - 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 Isadora Duncan" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Isadora a little better. This page describes the disguise Duncan wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Isadora Duncan meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Isadora projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Duncan is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Isadora Duncan may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Duncan is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Isadora to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Isadora Duncan feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Duncan's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Isadora Duncan it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Isadora Duncan is not a follower. Others see Isadora as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Duncan presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
She projects herself with vigor and energy and impresses others with the force of her personality. Her will-power probably was developed early in life and Isadora Duncan takes control of whatever situation she is involved in.
She is intellectually alive, curious and willing to learn. Intellectually competitive, Isadora Duncan is fond of debating with others and could have some stormy proceedings. Isadora present her position skillfully, defends it ably and finds satisfaction in doing so.
Isadora Duncan has a strong need to influence others and to dominate her home or environment. She is likely to join associations with large groups of people and some of Duncan's relationships will be very important to her and possibly affect her future.
