approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Joan's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Joan Blondell comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Joan Blondell - 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 Joan Blondell" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Joan a little better. This page describes the disguise Blondell wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Joan Blondell 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, Joan 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. Blondell 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. Joan Blondell 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.
Blondell 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 Joan to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Joan Blondell 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 Blondell's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Joan Blondell 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. Joan Blondell is not a follower. Others see Joan as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Blondell presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
She may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Joan Blondell likes to get everything out in the open and she generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. Her relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Blondell may seem to run into more than her share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness her energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Blondell's challenge.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Joan Blondell could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Blondell may wish she was not so easy to read.
Blondell projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Joan Blondell generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and it may seem that she Joan somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Joan Blondell emanates.
