approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Carla's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Carla Bruni comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Carla Bruni - 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 Carla Bruni" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Carla a little better. This page describes the disguise Bruni wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Carla Bruni 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. Carla 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. Bruni tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Bruni.
Bruni 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, Carla Bruni 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 Carla'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 Carla 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. Carla Bruni empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Carla Bruni 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. Carla Bruni communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Carla never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Carla has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with her winning ways - is likely to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Carla Bruni is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Bruni must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Her emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Carla Bruni makes and how she interacts with the world, and generally her feelings are quite accurate and helpful to her. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people she meets day-to-day is rather easy for Bruni. Carla Bruni appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to her, especially when they need guidance or help.
Carla has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. She may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Carla's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Carla often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally, if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will strongly resist Carla Bruni and her objectives. Bruni might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
