approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Wendy's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Wendy Melvoin comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Wendy Melvoin - 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 Wendy Melvoin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Wendy a little better. This page describes the disguise Melvoin wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Wendy Melvoin has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and her two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though she may, on occasion, have her head in the clouds). Others often see Melvoin as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. She is, in fact, amazingly consistent for she possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to her regular routine. Wendy does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Wendy Melvoin is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. She follows her own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before she feels sure about it. Melvoin can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. She will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something she does not want to do.
When Melvoin has a purpose, she is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. Her obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make her flare up or respond to their anger. Wendy Melvoin appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind her easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Wendy often wins simply due to her relentless persistence and her ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for her reluctance to make changes is her very strong need for security. Wendy is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and she also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of her own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Melvoin's hankering for permanence is that she easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Wendy Melvoin has a keen appreciation of the natural world and she derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. She is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and she knows how to enjoy herself. Melvoin is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. She is also a great lover of beauty and her tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
To others, she may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of Wendy Melvoin, especially through her pity or sympathy. If Wendy seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, she should try to see how her own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
Wendy Melvoin comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. She watches her step, and frequently withdraws if her environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Melvoin may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Wendy is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Wendy Melvoin's confidence is likely to grow because she will learn to depend more on her own self-assessment..
She is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. Melvoin always has something going on and is not afraid to take chances. Wendy Melvoin takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep others along.
Wendy Melvoin tends to get easily excited and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Melvoin comes across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
