approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mary's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Mary Tyler Moore comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mary Tyler Moore - 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 Mary Tyler Moore" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mary a little better. This page describes the disguise Tyler Moore wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Mary Tyler Moore is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Mary tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Tyler Moore's way of dealing with problems.
Mary Tyler Moore may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Tyler Moore's emotional balance and well-being.
Mary Tyler Moore is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Mary Tyler Moore probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Tyler Moore's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Tyler Moore, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Tyler Moore's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Tyler Moore will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Mary Tyler Moore overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Tyler Moore's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Mary through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Tyler Moore's more rational friends. Mary Tyler Moore certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Mary Tyler Moore has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Mary Tyler Moore to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Mary Tyler Moore has a mature and rather heavy, solemn demeanor, and she tends to take herself and life too seriously. She possesses a great deal of self-control, self-discipline, and a very dominant conscience. She may be dogged by feelings of personal inadequacy and inhibition. Mary Tyler Moore seems authoritarian to others.
Mary has strong leadership qualities and finds it natural to take charge of her family environment. She throws herself wholeheartedly into all her affairs, does not like others to make demands on her, but Mary Tyler Moore will willingly give of her in most situations.
Daring and a bit reckless, Mary Tyler Moore is not afraid to face danger. Mary wants to be the biggest, the best, the strongest and the most powerful! Mary Tyler Moore has a need to have her influence noted in many directions and a desire to rule over those in her environment.
