approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mickie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Mickie James comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mickie James - 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 Mickie James" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mickie a little better. This page describes the disguise James wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind James' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Mickie James wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Mickie James wants, Mickie James usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Mickie wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Mickie James functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Mickie James usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. James approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Mickie James also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to James. When Mickie James commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Mickie James is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Mickie James as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Mickie James also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Mickie James is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Mickie radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Mickie James has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Mickie coaxes rather than coerces. However, if she does not get what she wants, Mickie James is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing it for herself. James seems to need others' approval first.
Mickie James comes across as responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities that encourage others to take her seriously. She is unlikely to present herself as more than she is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Mickie James was mature for her age.
