approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Samantha's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Samantha Phillips comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Samantha Phillips - 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 Samantha Phillips" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Samantha a little better. This page describes the disguise Phillips wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Samantha Phillips is always questioning and learning, and she seems young and alive no matter what her chronological age, for her mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Samantha Phillips has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and she learns easily, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Phillips can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for she tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. She needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, she is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Samantha Phillips enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. She is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly she may be feeling, Samantha never comes across as melancholic or somber. She may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Samantha Phillips has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent her from taking herself or life too seriously. In fact, Phillips may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Samantha Phillips responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and she may not empathize with people very much. Samantha does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if she cannot fully grasp something with her reason and logic, Phillips will often choose to ignore it, including her own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Phillips' and her life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to her restlessness. Samantha Phillips becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. She is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
Her gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Samantha Phillips tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if she does not have work or other activities that utilize her mental, verbal, and social skills.
Samantha Phillips radiates a sense of confidence, well-being, and optimism, which inspires trust and good feelings in others. She likes herself and it shows. She expects success in life and she generally achieves it. However, Phillips also tends to exaggerate or to overestimate herself, and she can be sloppy and careless when it comes to details.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Samantha Phillips seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Samantha tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and overly forceful approach get Samantha into trouble. Samantha Phillips tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Samantha Phillips needs to moderate her temper in order to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Samantha's personality. Phillips can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Samantha Phillips may feel frustrated because she feels that she is not being perceived very clearly, that she does not make a powerful impression, that she is easily overlooked or discounted. If she does not wish to be "invisible", Phillips must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Samantha Phillips is. On the other hand, Samantha Phillips may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
