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 Leslie comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Joan Leslie - 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 Leslie" 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 Leslie wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Joan Leslie 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 Leslie 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. Joan does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Joan Leslie 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. Leslie 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 Leslie 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. Joan Leslie 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, Joan 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. Joan 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 Leslie'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.
Joan Leslie 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. Leslie 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.
Joan Leslie seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know her or form close friendships with her. To others, Joan may appear standoffish, as if she judges them from afar.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Joan's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Joan Leslie also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Leslie needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
Joan has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with her winning ways, is apt to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Joan Leslie is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Leslie must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Joan Leslie appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in her manner. She is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Leslie is unreliable.
Joan has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. She may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Joan's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
She is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Joan Leslie needs her freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Joan has a strong desire to exceed her limits, even if it means having to use force.
