approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Meredith's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Meredith Baxter comes across, the face she shows to the world.

Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Meredith Baxter" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Meredith a little better. This page describes the disguise Baxter wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Meredith Baxter likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Baxter must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Meredith does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Meredith Baxter also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats her in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Baxter will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Meredith dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Baxter admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Meredith Baxter befriends someone, Baxter is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. She is very giving and generous, but her gifts are never anonymous - Meredith expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated.
