approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sybil's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sybil Leek comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sybil Leek - 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 Sybil Leek" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sybil a little better. This page describes the disguise Leek wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Leek's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Sybil Leek wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Sybil Leek wants, Sybil Leek usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Sybil wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Sybil Leek functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Sybil Leek usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Leek approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Sybil Leek also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Leek. When Sybil Leek commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Sybil Leek is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Sybil Leek as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Sybil Leek also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Sybil Leek seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Sybil tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Sybil Leek seems to enjoy projecting herself differently to others than she really is, giving them a false impression of herself. She is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
She is very sensitive to her surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. Sybil Leek tends to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that she cannot stand up to them.
