approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dakota's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Dakota Fanning comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dakota Fanning - 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 Dakota Fanning" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dakota a little better. This page describes the disguise Fanning wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Dakota Fanning is always questioning and learning, and she seems young and alive no matter what her chronological age, for her mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Dakota Fanning has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and she learns easily, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Fanning can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for she tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. She needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, she is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Dakota Fanning enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. She is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly she may be feeling, Dakota never comes across as melancholic or somber. She may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Dakota Fanning has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent her from taking herself or life too seriously. In fact, Fanning may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Dakota Fanning responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and she may not empathize with people very much. Dakota does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if she cannot fully grasp something with her reason and logic, Fanning will often choose to ignore it, including her own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Fanning's and her life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to her restlessness. Dakota Fanning becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. She is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
Her gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Dakota Fanning tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if she does not have work or other activities that utilize her mental, verbal, and social skills.
Dakota Fanning appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Dakota Fanning may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
