approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lark's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Lark Voorhies comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lark Voorhies - 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 Lark Voorhies" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lark a little better. This page describes the disguise Voorhies wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Lark Voorhies appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Lark has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Voorhies tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Voorhies.
Voorhies approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Lark Voorhies is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Lark's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Lark and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Lark Voorhies empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Lark Voorhies is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Lark Voorhies communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Lark never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Lark Voorhies 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, Lark Voorhies often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Lark Voorhies which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Lark she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Voorhies sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Lark Voorhies may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Lark should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Lark's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Lark Voorhies also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Voorhies needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
Lark Voorhies seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if she has traveled widely. She radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Voorhies is apt to have a significant impact on the people she encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Lark's personality. Voorhies can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Lark Voorhies may feel frustrated because she feels that she is not being perceived very clearly, that she does not make a powerful impression, that she is easily overlooked or discounted. If she does not wish to be "invisible", Voorhies must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Lark Voorhies is. On the other hand, Lark Voorhies may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Lark Voorhies tends to get excited easily and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Voorhies seems to come across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
