approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Madeleine's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Madeleine Renaud comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Madeleine Renaud - 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 Madeleine Renaud" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Madeleine a little better. This page describes the disguise Renaud wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Madeleine Renaud meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Madeleine projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Renaud is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Madeleine Renaud may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Renaud is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Madeleine to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Madeleine Renaud feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Renaud's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Madeleine Renaud it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Madeleine Renaud is not a follower. Others see Madeleine as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Renaud presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Madeleine Renaud appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. She watches her step, and frequently withdraws if her environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Renaud may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Madeleine fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Madeleine Renaud is likely to grow in confidence, because she will learn to depend more on her own evaluation of herself.
