approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Rita's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Rita Marley comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Rita Marley - 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 Rita Marley" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Rita a little better. This page describes the disguise Marley wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Rita Marley will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Rita has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Rita Marley very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Marley is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Rita Marley will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Marley's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Rita Marley appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Marley is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Rita possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Rita Marley - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Rita Marley does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Rita.
Others see Rita Marley as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Marley shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Rita Marley usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Rita Marley has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Rita Marley often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
Rita Marley appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. She watches her step, and frequently withdraws if her environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Marley may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Rita fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Rita Marley is likely to grow in confidence, because she will learn to depend more on her own evaluation of herself.
