approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Chrissie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Chrissie Hynde comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Chrissie Hynde - 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 Chrissie Hynde" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Chrissie a little better. This page describes the disguise Hynde wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Chrissie Hynde will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Chrissie has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Chrissie Hynde very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Hynde is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Chrissie Hynde will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Hynde's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Chrissie Hynde appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Hynde is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Chrissie possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Chrissie Hynde - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Chrissie Hynde does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Chrissie.
Others see Chrissie Hynde as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Hynde shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Chrissie Hynde usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Chrissie 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 Chrissie's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
