approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Molly's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Molly Shannon comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Molly Shannon - 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 Molly Shannon" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Molly a little better. This page describes the disguise Shannon 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 Shannon's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Molly Shannon wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Molly Shannon wants, Molly Shannon usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Molly 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. Molly Shannon 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. Molly Shannon usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Shannon approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Molly Shannon 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 Shannon. When Molly Shannon 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, Molly Shannon 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 Molly Shannon as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Molly Shannon also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Molly Shannon can get by in life almost on her personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Molly that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually she appears confident and clear about who she is, and it is very difficult not to notice her or feel her influence when Shannon is around.
Her emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Molly Shannon makes and how she interacts with the world, and generally her feelings are quite accurate and helpful to her. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people she meets day-to-day is rather easy for Shannon. Molly Shannon appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to her, especially when they need guidance or help.
Molly Shannon has a tendency to react violently to the influence of her surroundings and to throw herself headlong into everything she does, suffering the consequences later on. Until Molly learns to alter her conduct, there are likely to be many upsets in her relationships.
She is able to control her feelings and conduct herself in a very proper manner. Because of her inner shyness, Molly Shannon tends to separate herself from others and gives the impression that she does not want to be talked to.
