approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Nancy's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Nancy Reagan comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Nancy Reagan - 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 Nancy Reagan" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Nancy a little better. This page describes the disguise Reagan wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Nancy Reagan will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Nancy has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Nancy Reagan very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Reagan is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Nancy Reagan will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Reagan's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Nancy Reagan appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Reagan is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Nancy possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Nancy Reagan - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Nancy Reagan does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Nancy.
Others see Nancy Reagan as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Reagan shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Nancy Reagan usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Nancy Reagan 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, Nancy Reagan often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Nancy Reagan seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Nancy tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Nancy into trouble. Nancy Reagan tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Nancy Reagan needs to moderate her temper to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
Nancy Reagan tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in her surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
