approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Missy's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Missy Elliott comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Missy Elliott - 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 Missy Elliott" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Missy a little better. This page describes the disguise Elliott 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, Missy Elliott always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Elliott will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Missy Elliott 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. Missy Elliott also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Elliott's environment is very important to Elliott.
Elliott 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. Missy Elliott 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, Missy rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Missy Elliott as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Elliott 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. Missy 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.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Missy Elliott tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Missy does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Missy Elliott appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Missy Elliott may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Missy Elliott comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Elliott also needs to be busy and active, and she moves quickly. Missy Elliott also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Elliott projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Missy Elliott generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and it may seem that she Missy somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Missy Elliott emanates.
Missy often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will put up a lot of resistance to Missy Elliott and her objectives. Elliott might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
Missy has good organizing ability and she knows how to arrange everything skillfully. Happy in team-work and adept in negotiating, she can lead successful business meetings. Missy Elliott can easily obtain all the information she needs in order to make the best deal.
