approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Angela's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Angela Merkel comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Angela Merkel - 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 Angela Merkel" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Angela a little better. This page describes the disguise Merkel 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, Angela Merkel 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. Angela has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Angela Merkel very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Merkel is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Angela Merkel will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Merkel'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. Angela Merkel 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 Merkel is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Angela 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 Angela Merkel - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Angela Merkel 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 Angela.
Others see Angela Merkel as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Merkel 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 Angela Merkel usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Angela Merkel seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Angela tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Angela Merkel has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Angela will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Merkel can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Angela Merkel appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Merkel understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Angela Merkel really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
Angela Merkel loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Merkel is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy to her.
Her pleasant and friendly disposition enables Angela Merkel to embark on quick personal relationships with other people. She enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to her environment.
