approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alexis' basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Alexis Bledel comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alexis Bledel - 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 Alexis Bledel" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alexis a little better. This page describes the disguise Bledel 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 Bledel's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Alexis Bledel wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Alexis Bledel wants, Alexis Bledel usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Alexis 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. Alexis Bledel 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. Alexis Bledel usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Bledel approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Alexis Bledel 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 Bledel. When Alexis Bledel 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, Alexis Bledel 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 Alexis Bledel as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Alexis Bledel also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Alexis Bledel identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. She enjoys being original, unpredictable, and spontaneous, and insists on doing whatever she wishes regardless of tradition, convention, or other people's wishes. Others see Alexis Bledel as "different" yet interesting and exciting.
Alexis Bledel can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Alexis that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually she appears confident and clear about who she is, and it is very difficult not to notice her or feel her influence when Bledel is around.
In significant ways, Bledel's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Alexis Bledel may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Alexis Bledel is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
