approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alex's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Alex Kingston comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alex Kingston - 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 Alex Kingston" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alex a little better. This page describes the disguise Kingston wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Alex Kingston appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Alex has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Kingston tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Kingston.
Kingston approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Alex Kingston is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Alex's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Alex and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Alex Kingston empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Alex Kingston is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Alex Kingston communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Alex never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Alex Kingston radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore Kingston when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Alex Kingston which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Alex is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Alex Kingston needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Kingston may well have been discouraged from freely expressing herself. Moreover, she may be seriously inhibited by an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line.
It may be hard for Alex Kingston to hold her ground and she may be taken advantage of easily. Kingston displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
Alex Kingston seems to float between the world of illusion and reality and prefers to live in the former. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, she may try to avoid responsibility. Her ideas tend to be a bit strange and Alex Kingston should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
