approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sissy's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sissy Spacek comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sissy Spacek - 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 Sissy Spacek" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sissy a little better. This page describes the disguise Spacek 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, Sissy Spacek always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Spacek will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Sissy Spacek 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. Sissy Spacek also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Spacek's environment is very important to Spacek.
Spacek 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. Sissy Spacek 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, Sissy rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Sissy Spacek as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Spacek 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. Sissy 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! Sissy Spacek has to try and overcome her tendency to be sharp and sarcastic - it creates more conflict than necessary!
Despite the fact that her core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Sissy Spacek has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Sissy Spacek often does not get the full recognition she yearns for.
Sissy Spacek comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes she appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being herself. Spacek tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
