approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Audrey's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Audrey Hepburn comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Audrey Hepburn - 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 Audrey Hepburn" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Audrey a little better. This page describes the disguise Hepburn wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Audrey Hepburn is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Hepburn sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Audrey's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Audrey Hepburn herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Audrey Hepburn is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Audrey Hepburn is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Hepburn probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Hepburn's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Audrey Hepburn as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Audrey does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Audrey Hepburn is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Audrey Hepburn is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Audrey Hepburn needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Hepburn's work or outside social activities.
She may seem to others to be very gentle, malleable, and easily taken in. As a result, people can take advantage of Audrey Hepburn, especially through her pity or sympathy. If Audrey seems to be continually disappointed by or deceived by others, she should try to see how her own naiveté may be contributing to these situations.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Audrey Hepburn seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Audrey tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Audrey Hepburn appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which 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, Audrey Hepburn seemed mature for her age.
Hepburn has a well developed personality and tends to base her relationships with others on a more personal level. Audrey Hepburn is inclined to seek mental or intellectual relationships and also has a strong desire for soul-unions.
