approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kim's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Kim Mathers comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kim Mathers - 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 Kim Mathers" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kim a little better. This page describes the disguise Mathers wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Kim Mathers 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, Kim 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. Mathers 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. Kim Mathers 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.
Mathers 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 Kim to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Kim Mathers 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 Mathers' forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Kim Mathers 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. Kim Mathers is not a follower. Others see Kim as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Mathers presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Kim Mathers has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Kim Mathers often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
Kim Mathers appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. She watches her step, and frequently withdraws if her environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Mathers may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Kim fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Kim Mathers is likely to grow in confidence, because she will learn to depend more on her own evaluation of herself.
Kim Mathers appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Mathers understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Kim Mathers really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Kim Mathers is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Kim radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
