approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Taylor's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Taylor Momsen comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Taylor Momsen - 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 Taylor Momsen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Taylor a little better. This page describes the disguise Momsen wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Taylor Momsen will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Taylor has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Taylor Momsen very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Momsen is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Taylor Momsen will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Momsen's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Taylor Momsen appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Momsen is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Taylor possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Taylor Momsen - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Taylor Momsen does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Taylor.
Others see Taylor Momsen as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Momsen shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Taylor Momsen usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Taylor Momsen seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Taylor tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Taylor Momsen comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes she appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being herself. Momsen tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Taylor Momsen is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around her and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Taylor Momsen tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person she is with the most.
Taylor has strong leadership qualities and finds it natural to take charge of her family environment. She throws herself wholeheartedly into all of her endeavors and does not like others to make demands on her, but Taylor Momsen will willingly give of herself in most situations.
