approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sophia's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sophia Crawford comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sophia Crawford - 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 Sophia Crawford" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sophia a little better. This page describes the disguise Crawford wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Sophia Crawford likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Crawford must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Sophia does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Sophia Crawford also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats her in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Crawford will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Sophia dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Crawford admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Sophia Crawford befriends someone, Crawford is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. She is very giving and generous, but her gifts are never anonymous - Sophia expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Sophia Crawford often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as herself, for she does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If she is not in the leading role, she aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Sophia Crawford has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Sophia always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Sophia Crawford also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although she does not like others to realize just how important it is to her.
Her outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Her own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Sophia more than anything else. Sophia Crawford feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Sophia Crawford 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, Sophia Crawford often does not get the full recognition she yearns for.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and overly forceful approach get Sophia into trouble. Sophia Crawford tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Sophia Crawford needs to moderate her temper in order to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
Crawford may well have been discouraged from freely expressing herself. Moreover, she may be seriously inhibited by an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line.
