approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Rosalynn's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Rosalynn Carter comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Rosalynn Carter - 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 Rosalynn Carter" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Rosalynn a little better. This page describes the disguise Carter wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, she is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. She is quite humble in her own assessment of herself; she seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well she does something, Rosalynn Carter always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Carter will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Rosalynn Carter has an eye for detail and she gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. She is hard to please and her relationships with others may suffer because of this. Rosalynn Carter also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Carter's environment is very important to Carter.
Carter steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, she is unlikely to dive into it. Rosalynn Carter tends to underestimate her own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits her spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of hers. On the other hand, Rosalynn rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Rosalynn Carter as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Carter has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to her. Her clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though she is really quite helpful and caring, she does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Rosalynn may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than she really is at heart. She is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
She is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but she is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
Rosalynn Carter 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, Carter may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Rosalynn fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Rosalynn Carter is likely to grow in confidence, because she will learn to depend more on her own evaluation of herself.
Rosalynn Carter appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Carter understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Rosalynn Carter really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
She may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Rosalynn Carter does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Rosalynn's role to shake things up a bit and she may not be entirely comfortable with this herself.
She projects herself with vigor and energy and impresses others with the force of her personality. Her will-power probably was developed early in life and Rosalynn Carter takes control of whatever situation she is involved in.
She may find it difficult to get ahead because Rosalynn lacks the vitality to do so. Rosalynn Carter tends to wait for better conditions and has the desire to accomplish a lot without straining herself too much. Quite often, though, her plans just seem to hang in the air.
