approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Asia's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Asia Carrera comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Asia Carrera - 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 Asia Carrera" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Asia a little better. This page describes the disguise Carrera 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, Asia Carrera 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. Asia has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Asia Carrera very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Carrera is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Asia Carrera will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Carrera'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. Asia Carrera 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 Carrera is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Asia 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 Asia Carrera - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Asia Carrera 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 Asia.
Others see Asia Carrera as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Carrera 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 Asia Carrera usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
She may be perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Asia Carrera likes to get everything out into the open and generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. Her relationships with others may be marked by a great deal of competition, anger or friction as a result. Or, Carrera may seem to run into more than her share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness her energies into joint efforts and shared endeavor is Carrera's challenge.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Asia Carrera seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Asia tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Carrera would like to embrace the whole world and is everyone's favorite. Asia Carrera is very impressionable, has an inner feeling for others and can easily establish relationships with everyone. She is likely to have a busy social life and also enjoys working in group activities.
Asia Carrera seems to enjoy projecting a different image of herself to others, giving them a false impression of herself. She is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
