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 Quigley comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Joan Quigley - 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 Quigley" 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 Quigley 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, Joan Quigley always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Quigley will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Joan Quigley 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. Joan Quigley also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Quigley's environment is very important to Quigley.
Quigley 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. Joan Quigley 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, Joan rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Joan Quigley as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Quigley 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. Joan 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.
She is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Joan's personality. Joan Quigley may seem to be a busybody to others sometimes. She may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before making up her own mind, and Quigley may thus appear to be indecisive.
Joan Quigley appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if she has their best interests at heart. Because others view Quigley as a tolerant, understanding, and even wise person, they may also turn to her for counsel.
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 Quigley is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Quigley must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
The image that Joan Quigley projects to the world and the person she really is inside, are considerably different. So much so that at times Joan may feel that people do not see or know the real her. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Quigley makes may actually be misleading. Within her, also, there is much complexity and tension, and Joan Quigley often feels that she needs to change herself in significant ways or that she continually holds back essential aspects of hers.
Joan has good organizing ability and she knows how to arrange everything skillfully. Happy in team-work and adept in negotiating, she can lead successful business meetings. Joan Quigley can easily obtain all the information she needs in order to make the best deal.
Joan Quigley tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention to her. She is likely to think that other people are more important than she is and prefers to live in seclusion.
