approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Piper's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Piper Perabo comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Piper Perabo - 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 Piper Perabo" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Piper a little better. This page describes the disguise Perabo wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, she is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Piper Perabo frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. She is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Perabo, and she tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. She is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
She is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning her moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. She is willing to work long and persistently for what she wants and she often does things the hard way. Piper does not expect others to take care of her and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. She is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about her approach. She is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with her duties to others and how she comes across socially - her "rank" so to speak.
To others Piper Perabo seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Piper dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Perabo likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Piper Perabo respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and she feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Perabo's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Piper Perabo has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to her personality. She expects much from herself and may not give herself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
She also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve her money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Piper Perabo spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in her. Piper exercises great self-discipline and self-control and she can "do without" very well. Her tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though she may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Perabo shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
Piper Perabo appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Piper Perabo may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Piper Perabo which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Piper she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Perabo sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Piper Perabo may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Piper should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Piper Perabo comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Perabo also needs to be busy and active, and she moves quickly. Piper Perabo also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
She is self-assured and confident in dealing with others and has a positive influence on her environment. Piper Perabo is able to work well with others in a team effort, and advantages through other people could come to her frequently.
