approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Amy's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Amy Winehouse comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Amy Winehouse - 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 Amy Winehouse" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Amy a little better. This page describes the disguise Winehouse 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 Winehouse's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Amy Winehouse wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Amy Winehouse wants, Amy Winehouse usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Amy 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. Amy Winehouse 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. Amy Winehouse usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Winehouse approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Amy Winehouse 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 Winehouse. When Amy Winehouse 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, Amy Winehouse 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 Amy Winehouse as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Amy Winehouse also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Her emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Amy Winehouse could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Winehouse may wish she were not so easy to read.
Amy Winehouse 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. She may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Amy Winehouse may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and overly forceful approach get Amy into trouble. Amy Winehouse tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Amy Winehouse needs to moderate her temper in order to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
Amy Winehouse comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her and cannot resist commenting about them.
Winehouse also needs to be busy and active and she moves quickly. Amy Winehouse also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
