approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Courtney's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Courtney Love comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Courtney Love - 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 Courtney Love" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Courtney a little better. This page describes the disguise Love 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, Courtney Love 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. Courtney has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Courtney Love very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Love is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Courtney Love will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Love'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. Courtney Love 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 Love is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Courtney 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 Courtney Love - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Courtney Love 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 Courtney.
Others see Courtney Love as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Love 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 Courtney Love usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Courtney Love could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Love may wish she was not so easy to read.
She is able to control her feelings and conduct herself in a very proper manner. Because of her inner shyness, Courtney Love tends to separate herself from others and gives the impression that she does not want to be talked to.
Courtney Love tends to think of work as a hard and necessary chore and she may feel that she has little freedom of movement because of pressure caused by her surroundings. Love is likely to feel hemmed in and consider dealing with others quite burdensome.
