approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sophie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sophie Marceau comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sophie Marceau - 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 Sophie Marceau" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sophie a little better. This page describes the disguise Marceau 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, Sophie Marceau always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Marceau will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Sophie Marceau 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. Sophie Marceau also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Marceau's environment is very important to Marceau.
Marceau 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. Sophie Marceau 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, Sophie rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Sophie Marceau as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Marceau 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. Sophie 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! Sophie Marceau 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, Sophie Marceau 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. Marceau can be a very effective reformer, working within the system to make it better. Sophie Marceau often feels frustrated by inefficiency and poor moral conduct in institutions and organizations. Marceau's contributions are probably more significant and the ensuing improvements more important than Sophie Marceau gives herself credit for.
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. Sophie Marceau tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Sophie does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Sophie Marceau seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know her or form close friendships with her. To others, Sophie may appear standoffish, as if she were judging them from afar.
Sophie Marceau appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Marceau understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Sophie Marceau really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
Sophie Marceau can get by in life almost on her personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Sophie that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually she appears confident and clear about who she is, and it is very difficult not to notice her or feel her influence when Marceau is around.
Sophie Marceau 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.
Marceau also needs to be busy and active and she moves quickly. Sophie Marceau also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Sophie Marceau has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Sophie coaxes rather than coerces. However, if she does not get what she wants, Sophie Marceau is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing it for herself. Marceau seems to need others' approval first.
Sophie Marceau tends to blend in with, and assume the characteristics of those around her, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe" and enjoy donning different personalities at different times.
Sophie Marceau is quite excitable and very impatient and ready for a fight in a flash. Because of her impulsive and rash behavior, Marceau also tends to be accident-prone. Everything Sophie Marceau does has to be done in a hurry and she expects the same of people in her surroundings.
She is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Sophie Marceau needs her freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Sophie has a strong desire to exceed her limits, even if it means having to use force.
