approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Rose's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Rose Bird comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Rose Bird - 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 Rose Bird" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Rose a little better. This page describes the disguise Bird 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, Rose Bird 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 Bird, 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. Rose 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 Rose Bird seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Rose dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Bird likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Rose Bird 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 Bird's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Rose Bird 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. Rose Bird 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. Rose 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 Bird shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Rose Bird is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Rose radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Rose Bird which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Rose is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Rose Bird needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Rose Bird appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which encourage others to take her seriously. She is unlikely to present herself as more than she is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Rose Bird seemed mature for her age.
