approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Selma's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Selma Blair comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Selma Blair - 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 Selma Blair" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Selma a little better. This page describes the disguise Blair 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, Selma Blair always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Blair will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Selma Blair 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. Selma Blair also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Blair's environment is very important to Blair.
Blair 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. Selma Blair 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, Selma rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Selma Blair as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Blair 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. Selma 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.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Selma Blair tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Selma does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Selma Blair appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Selma Blair may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Her emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Selma Blair makes and how she interacts with the world, and generally her feelings are quite accurate and helpful to her. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people she meets on a day to day level is rather easy for Blair. Selma Blair appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to her, especially when they need guidance or help.
Selma Blair comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Blair also needs to be busy and active, and she moves quickly. Selma Blair also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
She is assertive and bold. Selma Blair is willing to be the first person to speak up and make her position known, and to strike out on her own if necessary. Selma generally gets along better with men than with women because her approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. She can be a bit too forceful. However, Selma Blair's boldness is her calling card, and most people feels that she can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
Blair's intellect and her emotions are well balanced. Selma has the ability to manage her feelings superbly and have a cautious, adaptable and open way about her. Selma Blair likes to associate with the public and has an understanding for the "man on the street".
