approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Brigitta's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Brigitta Callens comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Brigitta Callens - 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 Brigitta Callens" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Brigitta a little better. This page describes the disguise Callens wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Brigitta Callens 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. Brigitta 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. Callens tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Callens.
Callens 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, Brigitta Callens 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 Brigitta'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 Brigitta 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. Brigitta Callens empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Brigitta Callens 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. Brigitta Callens communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Brigitta never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Brigitta Callens has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Brigitta Callens often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
Brigitta Callens appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. She watches her step, and frequently withdraws if her environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Callens may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Brigitta fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Brigitta Callens is likely to grow in confidence, because she will learn to depend more on her own evaluation of herself.
