approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alla's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Alla Nazimova comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alla Nazimova - 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 Alla Nazimova" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alla a little better. This page describes the disguise Nazimova 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, Alla Nazimova 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. Alla has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Alla Nazimova very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Nazimova is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Alla Nazimova will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Nazimova'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. Alla Nazimova 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 Nazimova is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Alla 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 Alla Nazimova - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Alla Nazimova 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 Alla.
Others see Alla Nazimova as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Nazimova 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 Alla Nazimova usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Alla Nazimova appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Alla Nazimova may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Alla often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is 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 put up a lot of resistance to Alla Nazimova and her objectives. Nazimova might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Alla that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Alla Nazimova may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Alla has causes, passions, or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Nazimova is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
Alla Nazimova has a kind and loving nature and she radiates friendliness and warmth wherever she goes. Because of her obliging and cordial manner, Nazimova is likely to have many harmonious relationships with others.
