approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Belinda's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Belinda Emmett comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Belinda Emmett - 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 Belinda Emmett" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Belinda a little better. This page describes the disguise Emmett wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Belinda Emmett 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. Belinda 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. Emmett tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Emmett.
Emmett 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, Belinda Emmett 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 Belinda'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 Belinda 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. Belinda Emmett empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Belinda Emmett 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. Belinda Emmett communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Belinda never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Belinda Emmett seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Belinda tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Belinda Emmett which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Belinda is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. Emmett 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, Belinda Emmett may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Belinda should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Belinda has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with her winning ways - is likely to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Belinda Emmett is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Emmett must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Belinda Emmett comes across as tolerant, broad-minded, and well educated or as a seasoned traveler. She radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Emmett is apt to have a significant, beneficial impact on the people she encounters, without even realizing it.
Belinda Emmett has a hypnotizing effect on people in her surroundings and others see her as someone with extraordinary capabilities. Belinda has a strong desire to mentally dominate her relationships, and with her ability to out-talk anyone, she can sway them to her opinions.
