approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Brandi's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Brandi Lyons comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Brandi Lyons - 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 Brandi Lyons" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Brandi a little better. This page describes the disguise Lyons wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Brandi Lyons 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. Brandi 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. Lyons tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Lyons.
Lyons 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, Brandi Lyons 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 Brandi'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 Brandi 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. Brandi Lyons empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Brandi Lyons 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. Brandi Lyons communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Brandi never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Brandi Lyons has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Brandi Lyons often does not get the full recognition she yearns for.
Brandi Lyons 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, Brandi Lyons was mature for her age.
Brandi Lyons has a hypnotizing effect on people in her surroundings and others see her as someone with extraordinary capabilities. Brandi has a strong desire to mentally dominate her relationships, and with her ability to out-talk anyone, she can sway them to her opinions.
She is charming and friendly to everyone, but may prefer more superficial and frequently changing relationships with people rather than steady and lasting friendships. Some of her meetings with others could come about suddenly.
She is likely to acquire a very powerful position and will gain public recognition for her efforts. Brandi Lyons may even achieve a degree of celebrity in her sphere and would make an excellent politician.
