approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Arianna's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Arianna Huffington comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Arianna Huffington - 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 Arianna Huffington" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Arianna a little better. This page describes the disguise Huffington 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 Huffington's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Arianna Huffington wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Arianna Huffington wants, Arianna Huffington usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Arianna 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. Arianna Huffington 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. Arianna Huffington usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Huffington approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Arianna Huffington 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 Huffington. When Arianna Huffington 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, Arianna Huffington 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 Arianna Huffington as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Arianna Huffington also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Arianna Huffington which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Arianna is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. Huffington sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Arianna Huffington may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Arianna should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Arianna Huffington radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore Huffington when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Arianna's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Moreover, Arianna Huffington also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Huffington needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
Arianna Huffington comes across as responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities that encourage others to take her seriously. She is unlikely to present herself as more than she is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Arianna Huffington was mature for her age.
The way Arianna Huffington comes across to others, particularly at first impression, tends to conceal certain important facets of her character. Specifically, what gives Arianna pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent based on Huffington's outward demeanor. Arianna Huffington seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to her or knowing her on more than a superficial level.
