approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Martine's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Martine McCutcheon comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Martine McCutcheon - 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 Martine McCutcheon" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Martine a little better. This page describes the disguise McCutcheon wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Martine McCutcheon appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Martine has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. McCutcheon tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to McCutcheon.
McCutcheon approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Martine McCutcheon is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Martine's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Martine and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Martine McCutcheon empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Martine McCutcheon is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Martine McCutcheon communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Martine never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Martine McCutcheon which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Martine is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. McCutcheon sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Martine McCutcheon may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Martine should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Martine McCutcheon comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses her interest. McCutcheon infuses her environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Martine McCutcheon does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
