approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lauralee's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Lauralee Bell comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lauralee Bell - 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 Lauralee Bell" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lauralee a little better. This page describes the disguise Bell wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Lauralee Bell is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Bell sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Lauralee's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Lauralee Bell herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Lauralee Bell is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Lauralee Bell is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Bell probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Bell's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Lauralee Bell as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Lauralee does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Lauralee Bell is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Lauralee Bell is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Lauralee Bell needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Bell's work or outside social activities.
Lauralee Bell is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around her and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Lauralee Bell tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person she is with the most.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Lauralee Bell is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Lauralee radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Lauralee that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Lauralee Bell may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Lauralee has causes, passions or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Bell is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
Others may see Lauralee as a cool, reserved and unapproachable person, perhaps as a result of her conservative and stern upbringing. Lauralee Bell may feel that no one understands her and tends to isolate herself from others.
Lauralee Bell loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Bell is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy to her.
