approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Julie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Julie Andrews comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Julie Andrews - 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 Julie Andrews" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Julie a little better. This page describes the disguise Andrews 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, Julie Andrews always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Andrews will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Julie Andrews 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. Julie Andrews also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Andrews' environment is very important to Andrews.
Andrews 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. Julie Andrews 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, Julie rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Julie Andrews as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Andrews 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. Julie 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.
Andrews projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Julie Andrews generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and it may seem that she Julie somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Julie Andrews emanates.
Julie 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 Julie's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
It could be hard for Julie Andrews to hold her ground and she may be taken advantage of easily. Andrews displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
She is a born leader and wants to be in power and control of her environment. Far-sighted and prudent, Julie Andrews has the ability to organize projects, and personal advancement and public success is likely to be hers.
