approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alexa's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Alexa Vega comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alexa Vega - 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 Alexa Vega" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alexa a little better. This page describes the disguise Vega wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Vega's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Alexa Vega wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Alexa Vega wants, Alexa Vega usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Alexa wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Alexa Vega functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Alexa Vega usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Vega approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Alexa Vega also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Vega. When Alexa Vega commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Alexa Vega is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Alexa Vega as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Alexa Vega also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Alexa Vega tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Alexa does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Alexa Vega appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Vega understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Alexa Vega really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
Alexa Vega tends to blend in with, and assume the characteristics of those around her, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe" and enjoy donning different personalities at different times.
Alexa often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally, if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will strongly resist Alexa Vega and her objectives. Vega might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
Vega is likely to go her own way in life and she has a tendency to stay secluded from others. Alexa Vega is always preoccupied with her own thoughts and ideas and gives other people the impression that she does not want to be bothered with their problems.
Alexa Vega has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but she is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in her relationships constantly. Her somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if she is not careful.
