approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Naomi's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Naomi Mitchison comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Naomi Mitchison - 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 Naomi Mitchison" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Naomi a little better. This page describes the disguise Mitchison wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Naomi Mitchison has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and her two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though she may, on occasion, have her head in the clouds). Others often see Mitchison as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. She is, in fact, amazingly consistent for she possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to her regular routine. Naomi does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Naomi Mitchison is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. She follows her own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before she feels sure about it. Mitchison can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. She will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something she does not want to do.
When Mitchison has a purpose, she is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. Her obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make her flare up or respond to their anger. Naomi Mitchison appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind her easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Naomi often wins simply due to her relentless persistence and her ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for her reluctance to make changes is her very strong need for security. Naomi is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and she also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of her own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Mitchison's hankering for permanence is that she easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Naomi Mitchison has a keen appreciation of the natural world and she derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. She is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and she knows how to enjoy herself. Mitchison is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. She is also a great lover of beauty and her tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Mitchison may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way she behaves towards others - or her personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that Naomi Mitchison is always a bit off center.
Naomi Mitchison also come across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
She is very sociable, has a harmonious disposition, and is able to have happy relationships with people in her environment. Her eternal optimism brings Naomi Mitchison the affinity of many people with whom she will have many joyful experiences.
