approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Laurie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Laurie Anderson comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Laurie Anderson - 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 Laurie Anderson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Laurie a little better. This page describes the disguise Anderson wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, she is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. She is quite humble in her own assessment of herself; she seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well she does something, Laurie Anderson always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Anderson will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Laurie Anderson has an eye for detail and she gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. She is hard to please and her relationships with others may suffer because of this. Laurie Anderson also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Anderson's environment is very important to Anderson.
Anderson steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, she is unlikely to dive into it. Laurie Anderson tends to underestimate her own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits her spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of hers. On the other hand, Laurie rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Laurie Anderson as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Anderson has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to her. Her clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though she is really quite helpful and caring, she does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Laurie may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than she really is at heart. She is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
She is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but she is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
Laurie Anderson appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Anderson understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Laurie Anderson 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 Laurie Anderson is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Laurie radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Laurie Anderson comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Anderson also needs to be busy and active, and she moves quickly. Laurie Anderson also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Laurie Anderson has a strong desire to constantly be in the limelight and she considers second place already as failure. Very self-confident, Anderson has the ability to mold her surrounding to her own needs and is likely to furnish her home according to her taste.
Her family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a note of gravity to Laurie's personality. Somewhat insecure, Laurie Anderson may feel that others restrain her. She has doubts about mankind in general and a fear of failure.
