approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Diana's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Diana Hyland comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Diana Hyland - 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 Diana Hyland" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Diana a little better. This page describes the disguise Hyland wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Diana Hyland 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 Hyland 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. Diana does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Diana Hyland 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. Hyland 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 Hyland 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. Diana Hyland 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, Diana 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. Diana 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 Hyland'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.
Diana Hyland 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. Hyland 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.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Diana Hyland seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Diana tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Diana Hyland which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Diana is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Diana Hyland needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
At times her desire to impress other people, to be important, or to be popular may make Hyland does things that go against her better judgment. Even Diana's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, seen as pompousness or interference. Diana Hyland needs to be aware of her tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
Diana Hyland tends to be somewhat inhibited and may feel uncomfortable when she is with other people. Diana should try to avoid unpleasant, untruthful or deceptive individuals in order to prevent misunderstandings or disappointments.
