approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Monica's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Monica Keena comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Monica Keena - 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 Monica Keena" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Monica a little better. This page describes the disguise Keena wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Monica Keena 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. Keena 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 Monica does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Monica Keena 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. Keena will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Monica dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Keena admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Monica Keena befriends someone, Keena 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 - Monica expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Monica Keena often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as herself, for she does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If she is not in the leading role, she aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Monica Keena has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Monica always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Monica Keena also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although she does not like others to realize just how important it is to her.
Her outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Her own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Monica more than anything else. Monica Keena feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Monica Keena could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Keena may wish she was not so easy to read.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Monica Keena seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Monica tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
She is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. Keena always have something going on and is not afraid to take chances. Monica Keena takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep along others.
