approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Valerie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Valerie Claisse comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Valerie Claisse - 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 Valerie Claisse" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Valerie a little better. This page describes the disguise Claisse wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, she is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Valerie Claisse frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. She is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Claisse, and she tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. She is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
She is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning her moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. She is willing to work long and persistently for what she wants and she often does things the hard way. Valerie does not expect others to take care of her and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. She is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about her approach. She is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with her duties to others and how she comes across socially - her "rank" so to speak.
To others Valerie Claisse seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Valerie dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Claisse likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Valerie Claisse respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and she feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Claisse's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Valerie Claisse has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to her personality. She expects much from herself and may not give herself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
She also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve her money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Valerie Claisse spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in her. Valerie exercises great self-discipline and self-control and she can "do without" very well. Her tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though she may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Claisse shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
The effect of her childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes Valerie learned while young, are clearly apparent in her demeanor. All is well on the surface, but when trouble arises, Valerie Claisse seems childish and needy. When she is in calmer waters, she appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in others.
Her desire to love and be loved is very much apparent, very much on the surface, and Valerie Claisse is known for her personal charm and affectionate nature. She may also seem overly dependent on the approval and appreciation of others.
She may be perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Valerie Claisse likes to get everything out into the open and generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. Her relationships with others may be marked by a great deal of competition, anger or friction as a result. Or, Claisse may seem to run into more than her share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness her energies into joint efforts and shared endeavor is Claisse's challenge.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Valerie Claisse which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Valerie is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. Claisse sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Valerie Claisse may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Valerie should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Valerie's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Moreover, Valerie Claisse also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Claisse needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
Claisse is charming and very affectionate, and she expresses her feelings vivaciously. Love comes naturally to Valerie Claisse; she seems to be tuned into love from head to toe. Valerie loves to go out and have a good time and little gestures of adoration are important to her.
Valerie Claisse tends to be somewhat inhibited and may feel uncomfortable when she is with other people. Valerie should try to avoid unpleasant, untruthful or deceptive individuals in order to avoid misunderstandings or disappointments.
