approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Brooke's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Brooke Burke comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Brooke Burke - 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 Brooke Burke" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Brooke a little better. This page describes the disguise Burke wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Burke's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Brooke Burke wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Brooke Burke wants, Brooke Burke usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Brooke wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Brooke Burke functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Brooke Burke usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Burke approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Brooke Burke also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Burke. When Brooke Burke commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Brooke Burke is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.

Brooke Burke has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Brooke coax rather than coerce. However, if she does not get what she wants, Brooke Burke is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing for herself.

Brooke Burke tends to suppress her feelings and may even pretend that she does not have any, therefore appearing rather cold. Brooke feels separated from others and is inclined to isolate herself. Others see Brooke Burke as a reserved, detached and serious person.
