approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Madonna's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Madonna comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Madonna - 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 Madonna" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Madonna a little better. This page describes the disguise Veronica Ciccone 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, Madonna always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Veronica Ciccone will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Madonna 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. Madonna also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Veronica Ciccone's environment is very important to Veronica Ciccone.
Veronica Ciccone 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. Madonna 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, Madonna rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Madonna as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Veronica Ciccone 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. Madonna 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.
Madonna often finds herself in the role of supportive caretaker, assistant, or facilitator of others' creative efforts and projects. Though seemingly unemotional and poised, she cares deeply and has a very strong nurturing urge, which Madonna expresses in tangible ways such as running errands for sick friends or nursing them back to health.
She is mentally active and restless and she likes to talk, communicate, and exchange ideas with others. Madonna expresses herself well, and is suited to activities that involve presenting ideas to other people, such as teaching and sales.
Veronica Ciccone's intellect and her emotions are well balanced. Madonna has the ability to manage her feelings superbly and have a cautious, adaptable and open way about her. Madonna likes to associate with the public and has an understanding for the "man on the street".
