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 Brooks comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Meredith Brooks - 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 Meredith Brooks" 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 Brooks wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, she is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. She is quite humble in her own assessment of herself; she seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well she does something, Meredith Brooks always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Brooks will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Meredith Brooks has an eye for detail and she gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. She is hard to please and her relationships with others may suffer because of this. Meredith Brooks also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Brooks' environment is very important to Brooks.
Brooks steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, she is unlikely to dive into it. Meredith Brooks tends to underestimate her own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits her spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of hers. On the other hand, Meredith rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Meredith Brooks as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Brooks has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to her. Her clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though she is really quite helpful and caring, she does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Meredith may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than she really is at heart. She is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
She is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but she is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Meredith Brooks has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Meredith Brooks often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
Meredith Brooks appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. She watches her step, and frequently withdraws if her environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Brooks may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Meredith fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Meredith Brooks is likely to grow in confidence, because she will learn to depend more on her own evaluation of herself.
Others may see Meredith as a cool, reserved and unapproachable person, perhaps as a result of her conservative and stern upbringing. Meredith Brooks could feel that no one understands her and tends to isolate herself from others.
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 Meredith Brooks often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
She is very sensitive to her surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. Meredith Brooks tends to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that she cannot stand up to them.
Brooks strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around her, Meredith Brooks spontaneously connect with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
