approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Aaliyah's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Aaliyah comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Aaliyah - 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 Aaliyah" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Aaliyah a little better. This page describes the disguise Haughton wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Aaliyah 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 Haughton 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. Aaliyah does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Aaliyah 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. Haughton 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 Haughton 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. Aaliyah 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, Aaliyah 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. Aaliyah 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 Haughton'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.
Aaliyah 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. Haughton 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.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Aaliyah's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Aaliyah also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Haughton needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
To others, Aaliyah appears capable, mature, and down to earth. Even when she was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Aaliyah that inspired people to rely on her. Haughton keeps her cool in most situations.
Aaliyah feels good about herself and enjoys good relationships with her friends and neighbors. She exchanges ideas with them in a very relaxed and open manner, always willing to learn more about herself, the world and other people.
Her attitude towards life is governed by her feelings and Aaliyah tends to seek cordial understanding with others. Aaliyah has the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting her judgment, they are likely to come to Haughton for advice.
Haughton is likely to go her own way in life and she ha a tendency to keep secluded from others. Always preoccupied with her own thoughts and ideas, Aaliyah gives other people the impression that she does not want to be bothered with their problems.
Aaliyah has a strong desire to build an image of her that captivates everyone around her, and with her attractive and fascinating personality, she has the ability to influence many people. Aaliyah is likely to have some unusual love affairs.
