approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Claudia's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Claudia Cardinale comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Claudia Cardinale - 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 Claudia Cardinale" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Claudia a little better. This page describes the disguise Cardinale wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Claudia Cardinale 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 Cardinale 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. Claudia does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Claudia Cardinale 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. Cardinale 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 Cardinale 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. Claudia Cardinale 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, Claudia 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. Claudia 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 Cardinale's 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.
Claudia Cardinale 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. Cardinale 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.
Claudia Cardinale has a friendly, affectionate attitude towards others and a great deal of personal charm. Her attractiveness is one of the first things others notice about Claudia, and is probably something she cares a great deal about. Cardinale gets along well with people and knows how to please them. Claudia Cardinale has a well honed sense of style and beauty.
While disinclined to move quickly or make sudden changes, Claudia nevertheless identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. She enjoys being "an original" and has a touch of creative genius. Others see Claudia Cardinale as "different", but interesting and exciting. She is an odd mix of the conservative and the eccentric.
She projects herself with vigor and energy and impresses others with the force of her personality. Her will power probably developed early in life and Claudia Cardinale takes control of whatever situation she is involved in.
She is discrete, tactful and adaptable, and has the ability to create a beautiful environment. Claudia Cardinale has a knack for entertaining people and appreciates pleasing manners and proper behavior when she is with others.
Claudia Cardinale has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but she is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in her relationships constantly. Her somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if she is not careful.
