approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Paula's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Paula Yates comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Paula Yates - 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 Paula Yates" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Paula a little better. This page describes the disguise Yates wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Paula Yates 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. Yates 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 Paula does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Paula Yates 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. Yates will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Paula dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Yates admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Paula Yates befriends someone, Yates 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 - Paula expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Paula Yates 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.
Paula Yates has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Paula always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Paula Yates 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 Paula more than anything else. Paula Yates feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Paula Yates identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. She enjoys being original, unpredictable, and spontaneous, and insists on doing whatever she wishes regardless of tradition, convention, or other people's wishes. Others see Paula Yates as "different" yet interesting and exciting.
Paula Yates is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around her and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Paula Yates tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person she is with the most.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Paula's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Moreover, Paula Yates also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Yates needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
Paula Yates 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. Paula coaxes rather than coerces. However, if she does not get what she wants, Paula Yates is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing it for herself. Yates seems to need others' approval first.
Yates may well have been discouraged from freely expressing herself. Moreover, she may be seriously inhibited by an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line.
She is very sociable, has a harmonious disposition, and is able to have happy relationships with people in her environment. Her eternal optimism brings Paula Yates the affinity of many people with whom she will have many joyful experiences.
