approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Julia's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Julia Child comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Julia Child - 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 Julia Child" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Julia a little better. This page describes the disguise Child wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Julia Child is always questioning and learning, and she seems young and alive no matter what her chronological age, for her mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Julia Child has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and she learns easily, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Child can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for she tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. She needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, she is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Julia Child enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. She is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly she may be feeling, Julia never comes across as melancholic or somber. She may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Julia Child has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent her from taking herself or life too seriously. In fact, Child may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Julia Child responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and she may not empathize with people very much. Julia does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if she cannot fully grasp something with her reason and logic, Child will often choose to ignore it, including her own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Child's and her life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to her restlessness. Julia Child becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. She is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
Her gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Julia Child tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if she does not have work or other activities that utilize her mental, verbal, and social skills.
Although playful and talkative, Julia Child also has a tendency to hold herself back, which causes her to feel stifled. Either from an overly developed conscience or a feeling of personal inadequacy, she does not express herself as freely and openly as she might like. Julia Child does a lot of editing and censoring. Her self-restraint can also be a blessing: in addition to her quick wit, she is also able to focus and concentrate, and Julia Child is capable of self-discipline responsibility.
Julia Child appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if she has their best interests at heart. Because others view Child as a tolerant, understanding, and even wise person, they may also turn to her for counsel.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Julia Child seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Julia tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Julia Child appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Julia Child may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
She is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Julia Child changes her opinions frequently and others never know what she will do next. Because Child is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with her.
