approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Christina's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Christina Onassis comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Christina Onassis - 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 Christina Onassis" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Christina a little better. This page describes the disguise Onassis wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Christina Onassis has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and her two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though she may, on occasion, have her head in the clouds). Others often see Onassis as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. She is, in fact, amazingly consistent for she possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to her regular routine. Christina does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Christina Onassis is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. She follows her own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before she feels sure about it. Onassis can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. She will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something she does not want to do.
When Onassis has a purpose, she is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. Her obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make her flare up or respond to their anger. Christina Onassis appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind her easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Christina often wins simply due to her relentless persistence and her ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for her reluctance to make changes is her very strong need for security. Christina is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and she also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of her own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Onassis' hankering for permanence is that she easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Christina Onassis has a keen appreciation of the natural world and she derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. She is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and she knows how to enjoy herself. Onassis is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. She is also a great lover of beauty and her tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Christina Onassis appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Onassis understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Christina Onassis really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Christina Onassis is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Christina radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
The way Christina Onassis comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of hers. Specifically, what gives Christina pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Onassis' outward demeanor. Christina Onassis seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to her or knowing her on more than a superficial level.
She is a born leader and wants to be in power and control of her environment. Far-sighted and prudent, Christina Onassis has the ability to organize projects, and personal advancement and public success is likely to be hers.
