approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Veronica's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Veronica Lake comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Veronica Lake - 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 Veronica Lake" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Veronica a little better. This page describes the disguise Lake wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Veronica Lake is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Lake sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Veronica's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Veronica Lake herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Veronica Lake is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Veronica Lake is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Lake probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Lake's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Veronica Lake as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Veronica does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Veronica Lake is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Veronica Lake is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Veronica Lake needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Lake's work or outside social activities.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Veronica Lake seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Veronica tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Veronica Lake has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Veronica will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Lake can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Veronica Lake has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Veronica coaxes rather than coerces. However, if she does not get what she wants, Veronica Lake is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing it for herself. Lake seems to need others' approval first.
