approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jennie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Jennie Jerome comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jennie Jerome - 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 Jennie Jerome" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jennie a little better. This page describes the disguise Lady Randolph Churchill wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Jennie Jerome has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and her two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though she may, on occasion, have her head in the clouds). Others often see Lady Randolph Churchill as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. She is, in fact, amazingly consistent for she possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to her regular routine. Jennie does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Jennie Jerome is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. She follows her own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before she feels sure about it. Lady Randolph Churchill can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. She will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something she does not want to do.
When Lady Randolph Churchill has a purpose, she is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. Her obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make her flare up or respond to their anger. Jennie Jerome appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind her easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Jennie often wins simply due to her relentless persistence and her ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for her reluctance to make changes is her very strong need for security. Jennie is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and she also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of her own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Lady Randolph Churchill's hankering for permanence is that she easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Jennie Jerome has a keen appreciation of the natural world and she derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. She is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and she knows how to enjoy herself. Lady Randolph Churchill is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. She is also a great lover of beauty and her tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Jennie Jerome tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Jennie does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Jennie's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Jennie Jerome also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Lady Randolph Churchill needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
Jennie Jerome 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. Jennie coax rather than coerce. However, if she does not get what she wants, Jennie Jerome is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing for herself. Lady Randolph Churchill seems to need others' approval first.
