approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lesley's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Lesley Stahl comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lesley Stahl - 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 Lesley Stahl" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lesley a little better. This page describes the disguise Stahl wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Lesley Stahl will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Lesley has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Lesley Stahl very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Stahl is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Lesley Stahl will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Stahl's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Lesley Stahl appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Stahl is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Lesley possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Lesley Stahl - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Lesley Stahl does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Lesley.
Others see Lesley Stahl as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Stahl shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Lesley Stahl usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
She may be perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Lesley Stahl likes to get everything out into the open and generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. Her relationships with others may be marked by a great deal of competition, anger or friction as a result. Or, Stahl may seem to run into more than her share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness her energies into joint efforts and shared endeavor is Stahl's challenge.
Lesley Stahl comes across as tolerant, broad-minded, and well educated or as a seasoned traveler. She radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Stahl is apt to have a significant, beneficial impact on the people she encounters, without even realizing it.
