approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Aishwarya's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Aishwarya Rai comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Aishwarya Rai - 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 Aishwarya Rai" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Aishwarya a little better. This page describes the disguise Rai wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Aishwarya Rai will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Aishwarya has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Aishwarya Rai very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Rai is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Aishwarya Rai will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Rai's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Aishwarya Rai appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Rai is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Aishwarya possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Aishwarya Rai - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Aishwarya Rai does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Aishwarya.
Others see Aishwarya Rai as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Rai shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Aishwarya Rai usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
While tactful and personable, Aishwarya Rai also enjoys being somewhat unconventional and she identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society. Rai can be seen as a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, iconoclast - or just a little "kooky". Shaking up people's rigid preconceptions and prejudices by being her own unique self is something Aishwarya is known for!
Aishwarya Rai 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. Aishwarya coax rather than coerce. However, if she does not get what she wants, Aishwarya Rai is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing for herself. Rai seems to need others' approval first.
Aishwarya Rai has a strong desire to make an extra-ordinary or unusual impression on her environment. Aishwarya has the ability to fascinate and sweep along others, but she can also be quite inconsiderate and ruthless.
