approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Anita's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Anita Ekberg comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Anita Ekberg - 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 Anita Ekberg" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Anita a little better. This page describes the disguise Ekberg wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Anita loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. She is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Anita Ekberg has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything she has yet experienced, and she often lives in her dreams and visions for the future. Anita Ekberg tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and she likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, she always expects something better ahead. Anita Ekberg loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once she achieves it she is on to something else. She is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and she is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for her. Anita Ekberg has great faith in life and she bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Anita Ekberg cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect her need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Anita and she may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
She is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. She is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about her convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Anita Ekberg gets carried away with her enthusiasm of the moment and she tends to exaggerate. She is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and she is usually pretty convincing. She does everything in a big way, a generous way. Ekberg likes to have the best, and she heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. Her vision is always large. She is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and she is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Anita Ekberg as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. She may also be seen as a wise person since she does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. She is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and she inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
Anita Ekberg is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around her and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Anita Ekberg tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person she is with the most.
Anita Ekberg can get by in life almost on her personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Anita 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 Ekberg is around.
In significant ways, Ekberg's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Anita Ekberg may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Anita Ekberg 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.
She is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Anita Ekberg needs her freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Anita has a strong desire to exceed her limits, even if it means having to use force.
