approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Devon's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Devon Aoki comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Devon Aoki - 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 Devon Aoki" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Devon a little better. This page describes the disguise Aoki 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, Devon Aoki 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. Devon has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Devon Aoki very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Aoki is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Devon Aoki will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Aoki'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. Devon Aoki 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 Aoki is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Devon 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 Devon Aoki - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Devon Aoki 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 Devon.
Others see Devon Aoki as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Aoki 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 Devon Aoki usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
The effect of her childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes Devon learned while young, are clearly apparent in her demeanor. It is all right on the surface, but when trouble arises Devon Aoki seems childish and needy. When she is in smoother waters, she appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in other people.
Devon Aoki 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, Devon Aoki may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Devon Aoki tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in her surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
She is a born leader and wants to be in power and control of her environment. Far-sighted and prudent, Devon Aoki has the ability to organize projects, and personal advancement and public success is likely to be hers.
