approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Shelley's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Shelley Winters comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Shelley Winters - 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 Shelley Winters" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Shelley a little better. This page describes the disguise Winters wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Shelley Winters 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. Shelley Winters has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and she learns easily, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Winters 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. Shelley Winters 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, Shelley never comes across as melancholic or somber. She may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Shelley Winters has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent her from taking herself or life too seriously. In fact, Winters may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Shelley Winters responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and she may not empathize with people very much. Shelley 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, Winters 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 Winters' and her life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to her restlessness. Shelley Winters 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. Shelley Winters 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.
Shelley Winters appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Winters understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Shelley Winters really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
Shelley often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will put up a lot of resistance to Shelley Winters and her objectives. Winters might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
