approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lily Than's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Lily Thai comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lily Thai - 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 Lily Thai" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lily Than a little better. This page describes the disguise Lilly Thai wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, she is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Lily Thai frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. She is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Lilly Thai, and she tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. She is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
She is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning her moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. She is willing to work long and persistently for what she wants and she often does things the hard way. Lily Than does not expect others to take care of her and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. She is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about her approach. She is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with her duties to others and how she comes across socially - her "rank" so to speak.
To others Lily Thai seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Lily Than dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Lilly Thai likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Lily Thai respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and she feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Lilly Thai's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Lily Thai has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to her personality. She expects much from herself and may not give herself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
She also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve her money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Lily Thai spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in her. Lily Than exercises great self-discipline and self-control and she can "do without" very well. Her tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though she may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Lilly Thai shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Lily Thai seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Lily Than tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Lily Thai has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Lily Than will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Lilly Thai can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Lily Thai which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Lily Than is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. Lilly Thai 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, however, Lily Thai may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Lily Than should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Lily Thai comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in her demeanor. She is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Lilly Thai is unreliable.
