approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Celia's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Celia Johnson comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Celia Johnson - 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 Celia Johnson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Celia a little better. This page describes the disguise Johnson wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Celia Johnson is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Celia tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Johnson's way of dealing with problems.
Celia Johnson may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Johnson's emotional balance and well-being.
Celia Johnson is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Celia Johnson probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Johnson's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Johnson, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Johnson's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Johnson will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Celia Johnson overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Johnson's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Celia through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Johnson's more rational friends. Celia Johnson certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Celia Johnson has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Celia Johnson to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Celia Johnson appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if she had their best interest at heart. Because others view Johnson as a tolerant, understanding and even wise person, they may also seek her counsel.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Celia Johnson is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Celia radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Celia Johnson which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Celia is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Celia Johnson needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Celia Johnson comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in her demeanor. She is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Johnson is unreliable.
She may find it difficult to get ahead because Celia lacks the vitality to do so. Celia Johnson tends to wait for better conditions and has the desire to accomplish a lot without straining herself too much. Quite often, though, her plans just seem to hang in the air.
