approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Maggie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Maggie Smith comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Maggie Smith - 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 Maggie Smith" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Maggie a little better. This page describes the disguise Dame Maggie Smith wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Maggie Smith 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, Maggie 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. Dame Maggie Smith 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. Maggie Smith 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.
Dame Maggie Smith 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 Maggie to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Maggie Smith 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 Dame Maggie Smith's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Maggie Smith 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. Maggie Smith is not a follower. Others see Maggie as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Dame Maggie Smith presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Maggie Smith appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. She may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Maggie Smith may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
At times her desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Dame Maggie Smith do things that go against her better judgment. Even Maggie's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Maggie Smith needs to be aware of her tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Maggie's personality. Dame Maggie Smith can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Maggie Smith may feel frustrated because she feels that she is not being perceived very clearly, that she does not make a powerful impression, that she is easily overlooked or discounted. If she does not wish to be "invisible", Dame Maggie Smith must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Maggie Smith is. On the other hand, Maggie Smith may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Maggie Smith has a strong desire to make an extraordinary or unusual impression on her environment. Maggie has the ability to fascinate and sweep others along, but she can also be quite inconsiderate and ruthless.
Maggie Smith has a hypnotizing effect on people in her surroundings and others see her as someone with extraordinary capabilities. Maggie has a strong desire to mentally dominate her relationships, and with her ability to out-talk anyone, she can sway them to her opinions.
Maggie Smith has a tendency to live in a world of her own, a world that is likely to be far from reality. Maggie wants to make a big impression, and with her dazzling personality she knows how to put on a brilliant show.
She is likely to acquire a very powerful position and will gain public recognition for her efforts. Maggie Smith may even achieve a degree of celebrity in her sphere and would make an excellent politician.
