approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Elisabeth's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Elisabeth Kübler-Ross comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Elisabeth Kübler-Ross - 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 Elisabeth Kübler-Ross" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Elisabeth a little better. This page describes the disguise Kübler 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Elisabeth Kübler-Ross is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Elisabeth 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 Kübler's way of dealing with problems.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross 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 Kübler's emotional balance and well-being.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Elisabeth Kübler-Ross probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Kübler's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Kübler, 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 Kübler's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Kübler will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Kübler'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 Elisabeth through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Kübler's more rational friends. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Elisabeth Kübler-Ross 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 Elisabeth Kübler-Ross 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.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross 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, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore Kübler when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Elisabeth Kübler-Ross that may have little to do with her physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that she emanates. Also, Kübler tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. Her instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
The initial impression Kübler makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Elisabeth thinks and her true opinions are not always readily apparent. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross may try to clothe her ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute them rather than clarify them. For instance, she may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems that she does not believe it as vigorously as she does. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross tends to become scattered and nervous when she is out of balance. She needs clarity and order in her environment to be at her finest.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross tends to suppress her feelings and may even pretend that she does not have any, therefore appearing rather cold. Elisabeth feels separated from others and is inclined to isolate herself. Others see Elisabeth Kübler-Ross as a reserved, detached and serious person.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross has a strong desire to constantly be in the limelight and she considers second place already as failure. Very self-confident, Kübler has the ability to mold her surrounding to her own needs and is likely to furnish her home according to her taste.
