approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Anna's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Anna Popplewell comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Anna Popplewell - 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 Anna Popplewell" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Anna a little better. This page describes the disguise Popplewell wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Anna Popplewell is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Anna tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Popplewell's way of dealing with problems.
Anna Popplewell may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Popplewell's emotional balance and well-being.
Anna Popplewell is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Anna Popplewell probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Popplewell's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Popplewell, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Popplewell's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Popplewell will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Anna Popplewell overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Popplewell's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Anna through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Popplewell's more rational friends. Anna Popplewell certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Anna Popplewell has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Anna Popplewell to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
There is a certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Anna Popplewell that may have little to do with her physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that she emanates. Moreover, Popplewell tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. Her instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
Anna Popplewell has a big heart, is generous with her affections, and has a strong desire to take care of everyone around her. It is easy for Popplewell to establish personal contacts and relationships because of her ability to fully understand others.
Anna Popplewell has a tendency to live in a world of her own, a world that is likely to be far from reality. Anna wants to make a big impression, and with her dazzling personality she knows how to put on a brilliant show.
