approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Shauna's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Shauna Grant comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Shauna Grant - 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 Shauna Grant" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Shauna a little better. This page describes the disguise Grant 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, Shauna Grant always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Grant will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Shauna Grant 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. Shauna Grant also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Grant's environment is very important to Grant.
Grant 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. Shauna Grant 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, Shauna rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Shauna Grant as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Grant 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. Shauna 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 also possesses a lot of aggressive or combative energy, which could be channeled into the martial arts, or some form of disciplined athletic activity, with an emphasis on precision, form, and perfection of skills. Also, she is apt to wield her pen (or tongue) in an aggressive pointed manner! Shauna Grant has to try and overcome her tendency to be sharp and sarcastic - it creates more conflict than necessary!
Although she has a realistic and conservative outlook in many ways, Shauna Grant nevertheless identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. She enjoys being original and a free thinker. Grant can be a very effective reformer, working within the system to make it better. Shauna Grant often feels frustrated by inefficiency and poor moral conduct in institutions and organizations. Grant's contributions are probably more significant and the ensuing improvements more important than Shauna Grant gives herself credit for.
Shauna Grant is quite excitable and very impatient and ready for a fight in a flash. Because of her impulsive and rash behavior, Grant also tends to be accident-prone. Everything Shauna Grant does has to be done in a hurry and she expects the same of people in her surroundings.
