approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Chyna's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Chyna comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Chyna - 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 Chyna" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Chyna a little better. This page describes the disguise Joanie Laurer wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Chyna meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Chyna projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Joanie Laurer is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Chyna may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Joanie Laurer is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Chyna to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Chyna feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Joanie Laurer's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Chyna it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Chyna is not a follower. Others see Chyna as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Joanie Laurer presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
At times Chyna comes across as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or she may get involved in relationships that are "fatal attractions", where she acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality to Joanie Laurer's demeanor that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Chyna irresistibly.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Chyna has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Chyna often does not get the full recognition she yearns for.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Chyna which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Chyna is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Chyna needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Chyna has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Chyna coaxes rather than coerces. However, if she does not get what she wants, Chyna is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing it for herself. Joanie Laurer seems to need others' approval first.
