approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kay's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Kay Francis comes across, the face she shows to the world.

Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Kay Francis" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kay a little better. This page describes the disguise Francis wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Kay Francis 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, Kay 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. Francis 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. Kay Francis 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.
Francis 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 Kay to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Kay Francis 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 Francis' forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Kay Francis 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. Kay Francis is not a follower. Others see Kay as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Francis presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Kay acts very much out of instinct, emotion, and in the heat of the moment, and she is prone to childish displays of anger if her desires are frustrated. However, these episodes are usually short-lived, not something Francis stews over.
On the positive side, Francis' enthusiasm and drive is often infectious, and fosters courage and the will to overcome in other people. Francis can be a great motivator.
Kay Francis radiates a sense of confidence, well-being, and optimism, which inspires trust and good feelings in others. She likes herself and it shows. She expects success in life and she generally achieves it. However, Francis also tends to exaggerate or to overestimate herself, and she can be sloppy and careless when it comes to details.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Kay Francis has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Kay Francis often does not get the full recognition she yearns for.
Kay Francis comes across as responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities that encourage others to take her seriously. She is unlikely to present herself as more than she is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Kay Francis was mature for her age.
