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 Ricci comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Christina Ricci - 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 Ricci" 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 Ricci wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, she is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. She is quite humble in her own assessment of herself; she seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well she does something, Christina Ricci always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Ricci will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Christina Ricci has an eye for detail and she gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. She is hard to please and her relationships with others may suffer because of this. Christina Ricci also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Ricci's environment is very important to Ricci.
Ricci steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, she is unlikely to dive into it. Christina Ricci tends to underestimate her own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits her spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of hers. On the other hand, Christina rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Christina Ricci as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Ricci has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to her. Her clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though she is really quite helpful and caring, she does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Christina may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than she really is at heart. She is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
She is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but she is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
She also possesses a lot of aggressive or combative energy, which could be channeled into the martial arts, or some form of disciplined athletic activity, with an emphasis on precision, form, and perfection of skills. Also, she is apt to wield her pen (or tongue) in an aggressive pointed manner! Christina Ricci has to try and overcome her tendency to be sharp and sarcastic - it creates more conflict than necessary!
Christina Ricci radiates a sense of good will, optimism, and trust, which inspires hope in other people. Her presence has a healing effect on others even without Ricci's awareness. Though Ricci appears modest and content in a humble position, she has a sense of inner greatness or worthiness that is unmistakable. Christina Ricci also has a balance of confidence and humility, of faith and caution, that makes her very appealing to others and she has many more admirers than she realizes.
She is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Christina's personality. Christina Ricci may seem to be a busybody to others sometimes. She may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before making up her own mind, and Ricci may thus appear to be indecisive.
Christina Ricci appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Ricci understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Christina Ricci really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
The way Christina Ricci 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 Ricci's outward demeanor. Christina Ricci 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.
Christina Ricci believes in good fellowship or comradeship and cultivates an active social life. Her relationships tend to be very harmonious and her participation in group efforts is carried out with vigorous and energetic cooperation.
