approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sandy's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sandy Dennis comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sandy Dennis - 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 Sandy Dennis" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sandy a little better. This page describes the disguise Dennis wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Dennis' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Sandy Dennis wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Sandy Dennis wants, Sandy Dennis usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Sandy wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Sandy Dennis functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Sandy Dennis usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Dennis approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Sandy Dennis also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Dennis. When Sandy Dennis commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Sandy Dennis is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Sandy Dennis as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Sandy Dennis also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Dennis draws much of her energy and sense of self from her relationships with others. She is inextricably connected with the significant others in her life; Sandy Dennis may feel at a loss without them, even if she appears to be the powerful or dominant person in the relationship. Sandy appears self-assured - as long as she is secure in the important relationships in her life.
Dennis may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way she behaves towards others - or her personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that Sandy Dennis is always a bit off center.
Sandy Dennis also come across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
She is discrete, tactful and adaptable, and has the ability to create a beautiful environment. Sandy Dennis has a knack for entertaining people and appreciates pleasing manners and proper behavior when she is with others.
She is very sociable, has a harmonious disposition, and is able to have happy relationships with people in her environment. Her eternal optimism brings Sandy Dennis the affinity of many people with whom she will have many joyful experiences.
