approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Samaire's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Samaire Armstrong comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Samaire Armstrong - 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 Samaire Armstrong" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Samaire a little better. This page describes the disguise Armstrong 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, Samaire Armstrong 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 Armstrong, 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. Samaire 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 Samaire Armstrong seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Samaire dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Armstrong likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Samaire Armstrong 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 Armstrong's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Samaire Armstrong 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. Samaire Armstrong 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. Samaire 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 Armstrong shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Samaire Armstrong which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Samaire is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. Armstrong 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, however, Samaire Armstrong may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Samaire should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Samaire has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with her winning ways - is likely to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Samaire Armstrong is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Armstrong must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Samaire Armstrong comes across as tolerant, broad-minded, and well educated or as a seasoned traveler. She radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Armstrong is apt to have a significant, beneficial impact on the people she encounters, without even realizing it.
Samaire Armstrong comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in her demeanor. She is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Armstrong is unreliable.
