approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Tera's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Tera Patrick comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Tera Patrick - 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 Tera Patrick" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Tera a little better. This page describes the disguise Patrick 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, Tera Patrick 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. Tera has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Tera Patrick very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Patrick is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Tera Patrick will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Patrick'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. Tera Patrick 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 Patrick is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Tera 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 Tera Patrick - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Tera Patrick 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 Tera.
Others see Tera Patrick as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Patrick 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 Tera Patrick usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
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. Tera Patrick tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Tera does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Tera Patrick appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which encourage others to take her seriously. She is unlikely to present herself as more than she is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Tera Patrick seemed mature for her age.
Tera Patrick tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in her surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
Tera Patrick believes in good fellowship or comradeship and cultivates an active social life. Her relationships tend to be very harmonious and her participation in group efforts is carried out with vigorous and energetic cooperation.
Her family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a note of gravity to Tera's personality. Somewhat insecure, Tera Patrick may feel that others restrain her. She has doubts about mankind in general and a fear of failure.
