approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Meg's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Meg Tilly comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Meg Tilly - 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 Meg Tilly" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Meg a little better. This page describes the disguise Tilly wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Meg Tilly is always questioning and learning, and she seems young and alive no matter what her chronological age, for her mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Meg Tilly has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and she learns easily, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Tilly can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for she tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. She needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, she is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Meg Tilly enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. She is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly she may be feeling, Meg never comes across as melancholic or somber.

In fact, Tilly may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Meg Tilly responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and she may not empathize with people very much. Meg does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if she cannot fully grasp something with her reason and logic, Tilly will often choose to ignore it, including her own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Tilly's and her life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to her restlessness. Meg Tilly becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. She is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
Her gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas.

She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Meg Tilly seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Meg tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.

Her family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a note of gravity to Meg's personality. Somewhat insecure, Meg Tilly may feel that others restrain her. She has doubts about mankind in general and a fear of failure.
