approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lupe's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Lupe Vélez comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lupe Vélez - 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 Lupe Vélez" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lupe a little better. This page describes the disguise Vélez 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, Lupe Vélez always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Vélez will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Lupe Vélez 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. Lupe Vélez also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Vélez's environment is very important to Vélez.
Vélez 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. Lupe Vélez 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, Lupe rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Lupe Vélez as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Vélez 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. Lupe 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.
She may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Lupe Vélez likes to get everything out in the open and she generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. Her relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Vélez may seem to run into more than her share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness her energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Vélez's challenge.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Lupe Vélez which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Lupe she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Vélez 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, Lupe Vélez may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Lupe should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Lupe Vélez can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Lupe that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually she appears confident and clear about who she is, and it is very difficult not to notice her or feel her influence when Vélez is around.
