approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jesse's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Jesse Jane comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jesse Jane - 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 Jesse Jane" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jesse a little better. This page describes the disguise Jane wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Jesse Jane will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Jesse has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Jesse Jane very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Jane is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Jesse Jane will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Jane's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Jesse Jane appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Jane is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Jesse possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Jesse Jane - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Jesse Jane does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Jesse.
Others see Jesse Jane as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Jane shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Jesse Jane usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Assertiveness and confrontation is very much part of Jane's way of approaching life. Waiting for someone else to make the first move is not Jane's style. Though Jesse Jane values harmony and pleasantness, she often feels that others are trying to control her or are not trying to cooperate with her. Others feel that Jesse demands too much of them. Surprisingly, Jesse Jane is often perceived by others as a trouble maker or instigator, even when Jane's intention is to help and assist them.
Jesse Jane has a tendency to react violently to the influence of her surroundings and to throw herself headlong into everything she does, suffering the consequences later on. Until Jesse learns to alter her conduct, there are likely to be many upsets in her relationships.
