approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Priscilla's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Priscilla Presley comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Priscilla Presley - 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 Priscilla Presley" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Priscilla a little better. This page describes the disguise Presley 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, Priscilla Presley 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 Presley, 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. Priscilla 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 Priscilla Presley seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Priscilla dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Presley likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Priscilla Presley 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 Presley's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Priscilla Presley 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. Priscilla Presley 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. Priscilla 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 Presley shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
Priscilla Presley seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know her or form close friendships with her. To others, Priscilla may appear standoffish, as if she judges them from afar.
Priscilla Presley is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around her, and at times she can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Priscilla Presley tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person she is with the most.
The image that Priscilla Presley projects to the world and the person she really is inside, are considerably different. So much so that at times Priscilla may feel that people do not see or know the real her. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Presley makes may actually be misleading. Within her, also, there is much complexity and tension, and Priscilla Presley often feels that she needs to change herself in significant ways or that she continually holds back essential aspects of hers.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Priscilla that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Priscilla Presley may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Priscilla has causes, passions, or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Presley is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
Priscilla Presley has a strong desire to make an extra-ordinary or unusual impression on her environment. Priscilla has the ability to fascinate and sweep along others, but she can also be quite inconsiderate and ruthless.
