approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alana's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Alana Stewart comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alana Stewart - 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 Alana Stewart" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alana a little better. This page describes the disguise Stewart 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, Alana Stewart 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. Alana has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Alana Stewart very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Stewart is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Alana Stewart will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Stewart'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. Alana Stewart 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 Stewart is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Alana 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 Alana Stewart - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Alana Stewart 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 Alana.
Others see Alana Stewart as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Stewart 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 Alana Stewart usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Alana Stewart seems gentle and receptive and often does not make a clear, strong impression on others. Alana Stewart has an elusive and subtle quality, and people may be nebulous about who she is. She is easily influenced by others and somewhat naive. Alana Stewart has a spiritual, mystical approach to life and she is very idealistic and sometimes impractical.
Alana Stewart radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore Stewart when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
The initial impression Stewart makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Alana thinks and her true opinions are not always readily apparent. Alana Stewart may try to clothe her ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute them rather than clarify them. For instance, she may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems that she does not believe it as vigorously as she does. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Alana Stewart tends to become scattered and nervous when she is out of balance. She needs clarity and order in her environment to be at her finest.
