approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jaclyn's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Jaclyn Smith comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jaclyn Smith - 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 Jaclyn Smith" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jaclyn a little better. This page describes the disguise Smith 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, Jaclyn Smith 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 Smith, 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. Jaclyn 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 Jaclyn Smith seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Jaclyn dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Smith likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Jaclyn Smith 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 Smith's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Jaclyn Smith 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. Jaclyn Smith 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. Jaclyn 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 Smith shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
Jaclyn Smith is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around her and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Jaclyn Smith tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person she is with the most.
Jaclyn Smith 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. Jaclyn coaxes rather than coerces. However, if she does not get what she wants, Jaclyn Smith is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing it for herself. Smith seems to need others' approval first.
Jaclyn often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally, if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will strongly resist Jaclyn Smith and her objectives. Smith might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Jaclyn that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Jaclyn Smith may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Jaclyn has causes, passions or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Smith is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
Jaclyn Smith feels good about herself and enjoys good relationships with her friends and neighbors. She exchanges ideas with them in a very relaxed and open manner, and she is always willing to learn more about herself, the world and other people.
Her attitude toward life is governed by her feelings and Jaclyn Smith tends to seek cordial understanding with others. Jaclyn has the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting her judgment, they are likely to come to Smith for advice.
