approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Norma's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Norma Talmadge comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Norma Talmadge - 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 Norma Talmadge" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Norma a little better. This page describes the disguise Talmadge wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Norma Talmadge 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. Talmadge 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 Norma does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Norma Talmadge 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. Talmadge will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Norma dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Talmadge admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Norma Talmadge befriends someone, Talmadge 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 - Norma expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Norma Talmadge 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.
Norma Talmadge has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Norma always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Norma Talmadge 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 Norma more than anything else. Norma Talmadge feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Norma Talmadge has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Norma will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Talmadge can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.

Norma Talmadge has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Norma coaxes rather than coerces. However, if she does not get what she wants, Norma Talmadge is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing it for herself. Talmadge seems to need others' approval first.
Norma Talmadge tends to blend in with, and assume the characteristics of those around her, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe" and enjoy donning different personalities at different times.
Norma has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. She may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Norma's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Norma Talmadge has a strong desire to constantly be in the limelight and she considers second place as a failure. Talmadge is very self-confident, has the ability to mold her surrounding to her own needs and is likely to furnish her home according to her taste.
