approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mae's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Mae Whitman comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mae Whitman - 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 Mae Whitman" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mae a little better. This page describes the disguise Whitman 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, Mae Whitman always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Whitman will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Mae Whitman 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. Mae Whitman also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Whitman's environment is very important to Whitman.
Whitman 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. Mae Whitman 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, Mae rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Mae Whitman as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Whitman 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. Mae 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 perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Mae Whitman 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, Whitman 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 Whitman's challenge.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Mae Whitman which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Mae is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Mae Whitman needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Mae has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. She may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Mae's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Mae Whitman has a strong desire to constantly be in the limelight and she considers second place as a failure. Whitman is very self-confident, has the ability to mold her surrounding to her own needs and is likely to furnish her home according to her taste.
