Crown Princess Masako
approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Princess Masako's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Crown Princess Masako comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Crown Princess Masako - 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 Crown Princess Masako" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Princess Masako a little better. This page describes the disguise Masako Owada wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Crown Princess Masako is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Princess Masako tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Masako Owada's way of dealing with problems.
Crown Princess Masako may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Masako Owada's emotional balance and well-being.
Crown Princess Masako is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Crown Princess Masako probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Masako Owada's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Masako Owada, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Masako Owada's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Masako Owada will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Crown Princess Masako overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Masako Owada's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Princess Masako through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Masako Owada's more rational friends. Crown Princess Masako certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Crown Princess Masako has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Crown Princess Masako to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
At times Crown Princess Masako comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or she may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where she acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Masako Owada's glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Crown Princess Masako irresistibly.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Crown Princess Masako has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Crown Princess Masako often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Crown Princess Masako which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Princess Masako is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Crown Princess Masako needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
