approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Margaret's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Margaret Sullavan comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Margaret Sullavan - 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 Margaret Sullavan" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Margaret a little better. This page describes the disguise Sullavan wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Margaret Sullavan is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Sullavan sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Margaret's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Margaret Sullavan herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Margaret Sullavan is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Margaret Sullavan is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Sullavan probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Sullavan's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Margaret Sullavan as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Margaret does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Margaret Sullavan is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Margaret Sullavan is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Margaret Sullavan needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Sullavan's work or outside social activities.
Her emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Margaret Sullavan makes and how she interacts with the world, and generally her feelings are quite accurate and helpful to her. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people she meets on a day to day level is rather easy for Sullavan. Margaret Sullavan appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to her, especially when they need guidance or help.
At times her desire to impress other people, to be important, or to be popular may make Sullavan does things that go against her better judgment. Even Margaret's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, seen as pompousness or interference. Margaret Sullavan needs to be aware of her tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
Quite excitable and very impatient, Margaret Sullavan is ready for a fight in a flash. Because of her impulsive and rash behavior, Sullavan also tends to be accident-prone. Everything Margaret Sullavan does has to be done in a hurry and she expects the same of people in her surroundings.
She may feel that personal relationships are interfering with the pursuit of her goals and chooses to lead a life on her own. But at the same time Margaret Sullavan often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
