approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bernadette's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Bernadette Chirac comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bernadette Chirac - 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 Bernadette Chirac" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Bernadette a little better. This page describes the disguise Chirac wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Bernadette Chirac 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. Bernadette 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. Chirac tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Chirac.
Chirac 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, Bernadette Chirac 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 Bernadette'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 Bernadette 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. Bernadette Chirac empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Bernadette Chirac 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. Bernadette Chirac communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Bernadette never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Bernadette Chirac tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Bernadette does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Bernadette Chirac seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that she is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being herself. Chirac tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Bernadette Chirac appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Chirac understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Bernadette Chirac really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
Chirac is cheerful, warm-hearted and social and she strives for a pleasant life. She likes to be seen in social circles and is charitable to her fellow man. It makes Bernadette Chirac happy to be involved in many relationships and she is very sympathetic toward everyone.
