approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Katie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Katie Couric comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Katie Couric - 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 Katie Couric" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Katie a little better. This page describes the disguise Couric wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Katie Couric meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Katie projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Couric is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Katie Couric may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Couric is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Katie to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Katie Couric feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Couric's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Katie Couric it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Katie Couric is not a follower. Others see Katie as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Couric presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Katie Couric seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Katie tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Katie has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with her winning ways, is apt to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Katie Couric is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Couric must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Katie Couric tends to get excited easily and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Couric seems to come across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
