approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Cate's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Cate Blanchett comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Cate Blanchett - 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 Cate Blanchett" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Cate a little better. This page describes the disguise Blanchett wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cate Blanchett 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. Cate 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. Blanchett tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Blanchett.
Blanchett 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, Cate Blanchett 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 Cate'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 Cate 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. Cate Blanchett empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Cate Blanchett 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. Cate Blanchett communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Cate never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Cate Blanchett could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Blanchett may wish she was not so easy to read.
Cate Blanchett 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, Blanchett may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Cate fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Cate Blanchett is likely to grow in confidence, because she will learn to depend more on her own evaluation of herself.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Cate Blanchett which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Cate is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Cate Blanchett needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Blanchett projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Cate Blanchett generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and it may seem that she Cate somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Cate Blanchett emanates.
Cate Blanchett appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in her manner. She is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Blanchett is unreliable.
She is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. Blanchett always have something going on and is not afraid to take chances. Cate Blanchett takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep along others.
Cate Blanchett tends to be somewhat inhibited and may feel uncomfortable when she is with other people. Cate should try to avoid unpleasant, untruthful or deceptive individuals in order to prevent misunderstandings or disappointments.
