approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Zipporah's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Zipporah Dobyns comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Zipporah Dobyns - 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 Zipporah Dobyns" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Zipporah a little better. This page describes the disguise Dobyns wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Zipporah Dobyns 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 Dobyns 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. Zipporah does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Zipporah Dobyns 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. Dobyns 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 Dobyns 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. Zipporah Dobyns 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, Zipporah 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. Zipporah 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 Dobyns' 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.
Zipporah Dobyns 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. Dobyns 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.
Zipporah Dobyns seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if she has traveled widely. She radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Dobyns is apt to have a significant impact on the people she encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
To others, Zipporah Dobyns appears capable, mature, and down to earth. Even when she was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Zipporah that inspired people to rely on her. Dobyns keeps her cool in most situations.
Zipporah Dobyns 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. Zipporah coax rather than coerce. However, if she does not get what she wants, Zipporah Dobyns is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing for herself. Dobyns seems to need others' approval first.
