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 Pavlova comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Anna Pavlova - 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 Pavlova" 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 Pavlova wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Anna Pavlova appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Anna has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Pavlova tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Pavlova.
Pavlova approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Anna Pavlova is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Anna's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Anna and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Anna Pavlova empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Anna Pavlova is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Anna Pavlova communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Anna never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Anna Pavlova 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, Anna Pavlova may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Anna's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Anna Pavlova also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Pavlova needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
Anna Pavlova appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in her manner. She is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Pavlova is unreliable.
Anna Pavlova tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in her surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
Anna Pavlova believes in good fellowship or comradeship and cultivates an active social life. Her relationships tend to be very harmonious and her participation in group efforts is carried out with vigorous and energetic cooperation.
