approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Tallulah's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Tallulah Bankhead comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Tallulah Bankhead - 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 Tallulah Bankhead" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Tallulah a little better. This page describes the disguise Bankhead 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, Tallulah Bankhead always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Bankhead will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Tallulah Bankhead 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. Tallulah Bankhead also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Bankhead's environment is very important to Bankhead.
Bankhead 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. Tallulah Bankhead 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, Tallulah rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Tallulah Bankhead as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Bankhead 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. Tallulah 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.
Tallulah Bankhead is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around her, and at times she can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Tallulah Bankhead tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person she is with the most.
Tallulah Bankhead seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if she has traveled widely. She radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Bankhead is apt to have a significant impact on the people she encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
The initial impression Bankhead makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Tallulah thinks and her true opinions are not always readily apparent. Tallulah Bankhead may try to clothe her ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute them rather than clarify them. For instance, she may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems that she does not believe it as vigorously as she does. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Tallulah Bankhead tends to become scattered and nervous when she is out of balance. She needs clarity and order in her environment to be at her finest.
