approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of KaDee's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way KaDee Strickland comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner KaDee Strickland - 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 KaDee Strickland" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know KaDee a little better. This page describes the disguise Strickland wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere KaDee Strickland is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact KaDee tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Strickland's way of dealing with problems.
KaDee Strickland may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Strickland's emotional balance and well-being.
KaDee Strickland is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child KaDee Strickland probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Strickland's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Strickland, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Strickland's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Strickland will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. KaDee Strickland overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Strickland's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach KaDee through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Strickland's more rational friends. KaDee Strickland certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and KaDee Strickland has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables KaDee Strickland to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
KaDee Strickland 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. She may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case KaDee Strickland may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
KaDee Strickland comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses her interest. Strickland infuses her environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, KaDee Strickland does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
KaDee Strickland comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her and cannot resist commenting about them.
Strickland also needs to be busy and active and she moves quickly. KaDee Strickland also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
KaDee often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally, if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will strongly resist KaDee Strickland and her objectives. Strickland might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
KaDee Strickland has a strong desire to constantly be in the limelight and she considers second place as a failure. Strickland is very self-confident, has the ability to mold her surrounding to her own needs and is likely to furnish her home according to her taste.
