approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jane's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Jane Rule comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jane Rule - 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 Jane Rule" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jane a little better. This page describes the disguise Rule wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, she is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. She is quite humble in her own assessment of herself; she seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well she does something, Jane Rule always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Rule will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Jane Rule has an eye for detail and she gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. She is hard to please and her relationships with others may suffer because of this. Jane Rule also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Rule's environment is very important to Rule.
Rule steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, she is unlikely to dive into it. Jane Rule tends to underestimate her own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits her spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of hers. On the other hand, Jane rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Jane Rule as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Rule has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to her. Her clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though she is really quite helpful and caring, she does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Jane may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than she really is at heart. She is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
She is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but she is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
To others, Jane Rule appears capable, mature and down to earth. Even when she was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Jane that inspired people to rely on her. Rule keeps her cool in most situations.
Her emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Jane Rule makes and how she interacts with the world, and generally her feelings are quite accurate and helpful to her. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people she meets day-to-day is rather easy for Rule. Jane Rule appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to her, especially when they need guidance or help.
She is assertive and bold. Jane Rule is willing to be the first person to speak up and make her position known, and to strike out on her own if necessary. Jane generally gets along better with men than with women because her approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. She can be a bit too forceful. However, Jane Rule's boldness is her calling card, and most people feel that she can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
The way Jane Rule comes across to others, particularly at first impression, tends to conceal certain important facets of her character. Specifically, what gives Jane pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent based on Rule's outward demeanor. Jane Rule seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to her or knowing her on more than a superficial level.
